Yeah, I know.
Stating this, this is my own personal blog. All content on it is either mine, or is used with permission, or if I ever get famous, by guest writers, who also use permission to post things from their respective owners.
I use Google Analytics to track my users' anonymous data. The data collected includes what pages you view, how long you're on a page for, where in them world you are, what gender you are (if you're logged into your Gmail account), how old you are (if you're logged into your Gmail account), etc. It does not track personal information about you. I use this data to know what kind of content you're enjoying (or not enjoying) and try to convince companies to sponsor me and/or pay me to travel.
I use MailChimp for a newsletter. By subscribing to my newsletter you'll get news from my blog, as well as any deals I have on sales, or any little freebies I occasionally put out. MailChimp collects and holds this information.
Any purchases through my site are through Stripe, and I do not collect credit card numbers. However, I do collect emails in case I need to contact you about your purchase. I don't share this information with anybody.
My contact form collects your name, email, favourite colour and your message to me. I don't share this information with anybody.
I am trying to use Amazon Affiliate links to sell books on my site. I have added a disclaimer to all my articles that there are affiliate links in the article. By clicking on these links, if you purchase anything on Amazon within 48 hours I will get a percentage of the profits.
I tried using Coinhive for a month to try and generate extra income off my site. That didn't work and some people were getting messages my website was infected by Malware, so I removed that.
Lastly, I occasionally link to external sites. If those links are down, please let me know. If those links have viruses, please let those know. I am not responsible for what's on other websites. I'm responsible for my website.
If you have any questions, just contact me.
