Legal Stuff

It’s worth clarifying that each and every thought on my website is my own, I’m responsible for what I say, and all errors, stupid comments, and idiocy are my own personal responsibility. These are my own thoughts, generated by me, representing me. They – and this website. If I’ve made a mistake, it’s my fault. If something I wrote made you laugh, you can thank me. Obviously, you should not rely on anything in this website as legal, financial, accounting, investment, tax, or any other kind of regulated advice. I’m merely a gal who has a bunch of opinions, no matter how stupid they are.

My co-writers are incorporated herein ‘by reference’, which is legalese for “what they say is their own stuff and not affiliated with any of the companies they work for either.”

Oh, and good to note that this page is reviewed and revised from time to time.

Software Reviews

I post here and then a software review, these reviews are based on my personal findings, my opinion (this will be separated mentioned as a conclusion). The findings in those articles are based on the known facts, no matter if the original developer likes it or not.

  • I do not believe in marketing lies or snake oil.
  • I keep my reviews objective, my own thoughts are visible.
  • I always do my own research and I check what is already spread on the Internet.

Please keep in mind that possible mentioned problems might have been fixed over time or the product might be already end-of-life. I usually monitor the software and might review it once again something important change was made on the product.

Comments

Each comment gets manual approved, so don’t be sad if it takes a while until you see your comment. I try to unlock your comment as soon as possible. The Blog is protected via Google’s reCAPTCHA system. Supporters see their comments immediately. There will be no spam ever I promise – I promise – my site uses a very strong filter and due to the fact that every comment must be manually approved I see no reason to waste your and my time doing spam attacks.

I can’t update all links and posts of my Blog but if you find dead links, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. In the future, I might implement something to automatically detect dead links to avoid this but right now it’s simply too much work for me and time I would lose to monitor each post/comment to check every single link. At this point my apologies if something is offline.

All readers are encouraged to leave comments. While all points of view are welcome on my Blog, only comments that are courteous and on-topic will be posted. Spam will be deleted and if it continues the user gets a permanent ban. Participants on this blog are fully responsible for everything that they submit in their comments and all posted comments are in the public domain.

Long explanation

In the course of delivering this site to you, my Blog does NOT collect any personally identifiable information about you, such as your real name, address, phone number or email address from users of this website without your knowledge. All other information are taking measures to protect your privacy.

Ads via Google analytics used on this website can use cookies and/or web beacons to collect data in the ad serving process, this process. You can remove or opt-out them at any time using your browser tools but keep in mind that this ends up with not supporting my work. An additional opt-out method is already implemented.

You can leave comments on my site and stay completely anonymously. You may use your real email address or name – if you do, then these data are associated with this comment. I won’t use the information associated with comments in any way, won’t sell the information or share it with third-parties. I don’t associate IP addresses with comments or store them.

You may sign up to my site newsletter. I use a double opt-in for that and will store your email address for the sole purpose of delivering the newsletter to your email address. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Your email address will be removed when you unsubscribe and no record of the data will be kept.

The site displays share and subscribe options for select social networks. These are implemented in the most privacy-friendly manner; they are static links that don’t connect to third-party sites automatically and won’t record any user interaction unless activated by the user.

Which rights you have over your own data

If you have an account on my site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Note that I need to be able to link data to you, for instance, by your email address. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact me.

How long will I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment, your selected name and email address if filled out, are retained indefinitely on this site.

Promise to my reader
