What data is collected?


When visitors leave comments on the site, WordPress collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
This website uses the comment system “Disqus” to display the comments. Disqus is a service that allows you to comment as a single account on all sites that use it. Disqus has taken measures to be up to EU GDPR standards and is registered under the EU Privacy Shield regulation.

2. Newsletter Sign-up Form and Contact Form

The Newsletter Sign-up Form is managed by Mailchimp, and contains a GDPR Consent form that the user can agree with if they would like to provide an email address. Any emails received from the Bookwyrms newsletter contain a link to unsubscribe.

The Contact form collects name, email address and message data as provided by the user, which is needed in order for me to respond to your query. This information is securedly stored in the WordPress dashboard for management purposes and in my mailbox. I protect this data by ensuring that WordPress is up to date, and by using strong passwords. The data collected is also deleted once no longer required.

Google Analytics is integrated in this site, with anonymisation function.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a data subject has come to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which period of time a subpage was viewed. I use this information to better understand what the site’s audience interacts with the most, how they find this site, and in general, to reflect about how to improve this site’s experience for its users.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected via this technical procedure to third parties.

As IP anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or other states in agreement with the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by a Google server in the USA. On behalf of the operator of the website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to provide further services related to website and internet use to us. The IP address transferred through your browser to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.
