Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Google Analytics: This cookie allows us to get information about user activity on a given website, including but not limited to page views, what type of internet connected device is used and the length of the visit on the given website. The information is not personally identifiable and is displayed as numbers, which means that it cannot be traced back to named individuals. This contributes to the protection of your privacy. With the help of Google Analytics we can monitor what content is popular on our website and strive to give you more of the content that you as a user has shown the most interest in.

Google AdWords: By applying Google AdWords codes we can monitor which pages have contributed to inquiries via our contact form. This allows us to better utilize our paid search budget. This information cannot be linked to any one person.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

In accordance with the Personal Data Act your personal information must be stored safely and confidentially. We save your personal information on encrypted servers placed in controlled facilities and our security measures are regularly controlled by our IT supplier to ensure that our user data is handled responsibly and with due regard to your rights as a user. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent security for data transfers over the Internet. This means that there may be a (limited) risk that others unauthorized gain access to information when data is sent and stored electronically. You thus disclose your personal information at your sole discretion.
