I know it's kind of boring to read long legal terms. The "agree" decision is often made quickly, on automatism.
Yet, it's important to let you know how your data and personal information are treated, when you use my website. That's why I encourage you reading it.
This policy is effective as of 29 April 2021.
Last Update : 29 April 2021.
Your privacy is important to me. It is my policy to respect your privacy and comply with any applicable law and regulation regarding any personal information I and we (me and my services providers) may collect about you, including across my website, https://andydominiquerak.com, and other sites I own and operate.
Personal information is any information about you which can be used to identify you. This includes information about you as a person (such as name, address, and date of birth), your devices, payment details, and even information about how you use a website or online service.
Information I collect falls into one of two categories: “voluntarily provided” information and “automatically collected” information.
“Voluntarily provided” information refers to any information you knowingly and actively provide me when using or participating in any of my services and promotions.
“Automatically collected” information refers to any information automatically sent by your devices in the course of accessing my products and services.
When you visit my website, my servers may automatically log the standard data provided by your web browser. It may include your device’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page, and other details about your visit.
Additionally, if you encounter certain errors while using the site, I may automatically collect data about the error and the circumstances surrounding its occurrence. This data may include technical details about your device, what you were trying to do when the error happened, and other technical information relating to the problem. You may or may not receive notice of such errors, even in the moment they occur, that they have occurred, or what the nature of the error is.
Please be aware that while this information may not be personally identifying by itself, it may be possible to combine it with other data to personally identify individual persons.
When you visit my website or interact with my services, I may automatically collect data about your device, such as:
Data I collect can depend on the individual settings of your device and software. I recommend checking the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider to learn about what information they make available to us (me and my service providers).
I may ask for personal information — for example, when you subscribe to my newsletter or when you contact us (me and/or my customer support) — which may include one or more of the following:
Important note : I do NOT collect, and will never ask you to provide me with some sensitive information, such as : race or ethnic origin, political affiliations, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, criminal history, association memberships, biometrics, genetics or medical history, trade union, mental health details, etc...
We only collect and use your personal information when we have a legitimate reason for doing so. In which instance, we only collect personal information that is reasonably necessary to provide our services to you.
I may collect personal information from you when you do any of the following on my website:
We may collect, hold, use, and disclose information for the following purposes, and personal information will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with these purposes:
I may combine voluntarily provided and automatically collected personal information with general information or research data I receive from other trusted sources.
When I collect and process personal information, and while I retain this information, I will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.
Although I will do my best to protect the personal information you provide me, be advised that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, and no one can guarantee absolute data security.
You are responsible for selecting any password and its overall security strength, ensuring the security of your own information within the bounds of my services. For example, ensuring any passwords associated with accessing your personal information and accounts are secure and confidential.
Tip: Check out some security practices advises regarding passwords on my help page.
However, if necessary, I may retain your personal information for my compliance with a legal, accounting, or reporting obligation or for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific, or historical research purposes or statistical purposes.
I DO NOT aim any of our products or services directly at children under the age of 13, and I DO NOT knowingly collect personal information about children under 13. In the case I discover that a child under 13 has provided me with personal information, I immediately delete these last from the servers. If you are a parent or guardian, and you are aware that your child has provided me with personal information, please contact me so that I will be able to take necessary actions.
I may disclose personal information to:
