Who we are

This policy covers this website, at https://mygeekology.com.


If you leave a comment on the site, we’ll have the info you send us in the form, and your comment will be published on the website if it’s approved.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you’re using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. If your comment is approved and if you’ve added an image to the Gravatar service, that image may be posted with your comment as your profile image.


If you upload images to the website, don’t upload images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


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 you don’t 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’ll 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.

If and when you log in, we’ll also set up a few 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.

If you sign up for our email list, we’ll save whatever data you enter in the signup form. You can opt-out of receiving emails at any time.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. images, videos, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website. In other words, if you watch an embedded video here that’s hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or the like, it will be as though you watched it on that service. To find out what info they keep or track, you’d have to check their policy.

Who we share your data with

If you register for a login on our website and we receive a password reset from your email, your IP address may be included in the reset email.

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 who 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, or have signed up for our email list, you can ask to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you. We’ll be happy to delete any data we’re not 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.
