What Is A Cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in the user’s web browser while the user is browsing (if you allow). Cookies are designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember useful information.
Cookies are used to understand your choices for future visits and to get an idea about blog traffic and blog interaction so that we can offer better service in the future. It helps to better understand blog visitors.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
If you turn cookies off, some features will be disabled that will affect your blog experience and it may not function properly.
Default WordPress Cookies
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
We are using Google Analytics to get website stats. It means that we’re collecting or tracking personal data like IP addresses, user IDs, cookies and other data for behaviour profiling. None of this data is shared with anyone for any purposes.
Who We Share Your Data With
We share the data collected for email subscription with Mailchimp, the email marketing service. Data like name, email address are shared with it for sending blog updates, announcements for new features & products etc.
In case of any more third-party services being added in future, we’ll inform about them.
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.
Process of how users can place requests regarding their data works this way:
- A user requests to view or delete their data (via comments, contact form, or other means)
- The site admin goes to the export or erase personal data setting and enters the readers’ email ID, and clicks ‘send request’
- The reader receives an email with a confirmation link to confirm their request
- If the user clicks the link, their request is confirmed, and the site admin can send them an email with their personal data with the click of a button
- The user can download the file and view their personal data. The file is deleted after 72 hours for security purposes.
- If the request is for deletion, then the site admin can delete the data after the reader has confirmed their request
Where We Send Your Data

Apart from email data being sent to Email marketing service, all user data is stored locally on the host’s web server.
