Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Instead of using the contact form, we let people directly email us and our email is provided on our Contact page. So, there is no hidden information we collect while you contact us via email.
It’s just like an ordinary email you send to your friends & family or colleagues. Only your email address and name remains in our inbox. That’s it. We don’t sell the email of our well wishers who emails us to support our work.

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.
There are various analytics services in the market which tracks down the users of a website or app. We use Google Analytics to track our user activity. What do we do with the analytics data?
Well, the analytics data shows us our monthly users, daily users, most popular pages, and the average time people spend on our time along with their location. We use this metrics to improve our platform so that we can understand our users behavior and work according to user preferences.
Analytics doesn’t collect us your name, house address, email or your any private information.
Who we share your data with
Technically we don’t share your data with anyone else. Your data is always on our account. And, it’s our responsibility to protect your data. We never sell our users data. In fact, we don’t force our users to provide personal information.
Your email and name is all you need to comment or subscribe on our newsletter. If you subscribe to our newsletter, a third party app collects the email for us which goes directly to our account. And, we use a third party app called Mailchimp to send updates to our followers.
Other than this, no one can access our users’ information. And,w e are highly motivated to protect your data.
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. After checking your comment and information we either approve it or delete it. Once this processing is done, we do nothing with your information. Neither we sell the information nor we use your information to disturb you.
And, when you subscribe to our newsletter, an app sends your email and name to our Mailchimp account, an email marketing platform we use to send newsletters to our subscribers.
How we protect your data
We are using SSL on our website which means the connection between your browser and our website is safe is secure. So, when you submit a form on this website, your data is secure.
And, we respect people who comment on our articles. And, once a comment is approved or deleted, we don’t interact with the information. And, without selected administrators, no one is capable of viewing the information used in a comment.
And, we use two factor authentication in our email marketing account on Mailchimp, so that anyone except us can’t access our subscribers email list. Because, user’s safety is very important to us.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If we face a data breach (Which we hope will not happen), we will contact all of those users whose data was stolen. We will share the news in our social media accounts along with all of our email subscibers.
What third parties we receive data from
We receive data from various third parties. We monetize our network using Google Adsense and some other affiliate networks. Along with them, we use third party apps to trace our platforms growth such as Google Analytics and Mailchimp for subscribers list. We used the collected data for the betterment of our network.
