Who I Am

My name is Manon and I am The Dutch Countryside. Trying to help you discover my beautiful country of The Netherlands, with the help of myself, a native. My website address is: http://www.thedutchcountryside.com which is a bit straight forward, just like Dutch people.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

The data that is collected are the url and title of the page the user is viewing. The browser the user is using, the size of the browser window and the screen resolution. Besides that whether Java and Flash are used. Also, the location and language of the person will be collected. All of this is collected so I can create a better website. So I know what articles you guys enjoy, and which ones you don’t. And what size of photos will be better to use in articles so you guys can get the full experience.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised 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.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on my site you may 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site 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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Google Analytics is incredibly helpful for me. The data that is collected are the url, title of the page the user is viewing and how long you will be viewing the page. This might sound very creepy, but it’s not that bad I promise. And it all has a good reason. 


The browser the user is using, the size of the browser window and the screen resolution will also be collected. Besides that whether Java and Flash are used. Also, the location and language of the person will be collected. All of this is collected so I can create a better website. So I know what articles you guys enjoy, and which ones you don’t. 

Who I share your data with

With no one, besides myself. 

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

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

Where I send your data

Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service. The data will also be going to Google Analytics.

Your contact information

For any additional questions you can email me at thedutchcountryside [@] gmail.com.
