The Webserver is writing log data with IP-Adresses of the visitors.
This is only done to find errors in case of an emergency.
Otherwise the data will not be analyzed.
Using the comments function
If you decide to use the commenting functions some data will be stored.
Here is a small rundown of all the data collected. This is taken from https://commento.io/privacy which is writing the Commento software that provides the functionality.
Authenticating as a visitor of a website embedding the service: When you choose to authenticate yourself as a visitor on a website embedding the service, a unique, randomly generated token ("Session") will be stored as a cookie in your browser in order to remember you on future visits. Upon successfully authenticating yourself with a OAuth provider, all the information returned by the provider is stored and associated with your Session. This may include, but is not limited to, your full name, your email address, your photo, and an URL to your public profile. By authenticating yourself as a Vistor on a website embedding the service, you consent to allow the service to display all information except your email address publicly on all comments you create. This information will never be sold to advertisers, marketing agencies, or any other organization for user tracking or any other purpose.
I have decided to use countly to analyze some anonymous usage data for my website. This is done so that I can get a better overview of the users that are seeing my content. This way I can learn how to write better and more relevant content.
The data is stored on a server of mine, with full GDPR compliance.
By using the compliance hub add-on no data will be saved unless you specifically opt-in. This is what the pop-up is for, when you first visit this blog.
Here is a breakdown of the data that could be saved if you opted in to all options:
- Session data: How long has a user stayed on the page
- Page view: How often was a site viewed
- Errors: Any errors that occured on the page are saved so I can fix them
