Who am I?

My website address is: https://www.yonkeydonkey.be. You can contact me on my email address contact@yonkeydonkey.be


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

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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. 


If you leave a comment on my site, you may opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies will last for one year and are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.

If you visit my login page, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.

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 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do I share your data with?


If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.


They say this about their tracking: “We collect information about visitors who comment on sites that use our Akismet Anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the user sets up Akismet for the site but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter, such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).”

Complianz plugin

They say this about their tracking: “This website uses the Privacy Suite for WordPress by Complianz to collect and record Browser and Device-based Consent. Your IP address is anonymized and stored in our database for this functionality. This service does not process any personally identifiable information or share any data with the service provider. For more information, see the Complianz Privacy Statement.”


Due to Automattic’s latest decision to sell user data to AI companies, I have deleted their jetpack plugins. The main reason was the lack of any guarantee that Jetpack wouldn’t include my (and your data) in the AI scraping. Making it “opt-out” rather than “opt-in” another. Additionally, my blog isn’t hosted at WordPress.com.
I also run different plugins and services on my site that use cookies. I don’t have control over them as they come with the plugins I need for running the site.

How long do I retain your data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows me to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

I also store the personal information provided by users who register on my website (if any) in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do 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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that we erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where do I send your data?

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Long story short.

I do my best to use your data sparingly or not at all. The data I keep, register, or use is to make this website work or for legal reasons. In any case, I am here to share my thoughts, not your data.
However, I cannot avoid some of your data being used. It’s a jungle out there, and you would be surprised about the number of broken moral compasses on the internet.
Depending on how strongly you feel about tracking, you should either not use this site at all or use damage control and set up a VPN, adblocker, Bitdefender anti-track, Canvas fingerprint defender, Privacy badger, uBlock Origin, Firefox, Brave, Vivaldi, or, in a lesser form, Edge, reverse proxy…
