Collection of Personal Data

In context of this privacy policy, “personal data” or “personal information” refers to any personally identifiable information or data.

Comments and Contact Forms

In short: I collect the information shown in the comment/contact forms. Spam protection services will scan your submissions. I also use cookies for our comment form.

When visitors submit comments or contact forms on the site, I collect the data shown in the respective forms, which consists of the visitor’s name and email address. I also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An automated spam detection service called Akismet will check visitor comments. For more information, see the Akismet privacy policy: https://akismet.com/privacy/. The invisible Google reCAPTCHA service will check your contact form submissions to protect against spam and abuse. Your use of the invisible reCAPTCHA is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

If you submit a comment, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. You may also 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.

Website Analytics

In short: We use Google Analytics for statistics to improve our website. Google Analytics will collect your data, but you will remain anonymous. I encourage you to read the Google Analytics privacy policy for more information.

I may also utilize selected third-party vendors, such as Google Analytics, to allow tracking technologies on Glorious Hinduism through the use of first-party cookies and third-party cookies, to, among other things, analyze and track users’ use of the website, determine the popularity of certain content, better understand online activity, and improve the overall functionality of the website. To ensure privacy, I have enabled IP anonymization such that you will remain anonymous on Google Analytics. By accessing Glorious Hinduism, you consent to the collection and use of your information by Google Analytics.

Articles on Glorious Hinduism 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.
