Privacy Policy

This is my personal website and blog, this page is to provide information about data collection policies and terms of services of this website. Currently, this website is hosted on a server provided by Hetzner, the server is located in Nuremberg, Germany.

The following information applies to the following domains that my son Raghavendra Kamath owns on my behalf and assists me to operate.


Information about the author of this website

Information about the website

The domains are provided by Godaddy and Gandi, and as mentioned above the server is hosted on Hetzner, please refer to their websites to read their privacy policy and data collection policies, as they may collect data about you.

This website is built by my son and he will be helping me in administrating the server. We do not use any third party analytics or trackers like google analytics etc. If in future I decide to use any analytics to analyze traffic coming to the website, it will be hosted on our own server and this document will be updated to inform you about the data that is being collected. We also do not use any content delivery network services to serve fonts, images or videos on my website. If in any of my blog posts, I embed a video hosted by a third party, I will mention it on that blog post and link you to the privacy policy of the service, as they may collect information about you.

Information about the Data collected


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 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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


if you leave a comment on our 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.

If you visit our login page, we 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, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your 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 includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


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.

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

Who we share your data with

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

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

Data protection

The log files which record your IP address and the data collected for the commenting system are stored on a server which only we can access. In an unfortunate event of a data breach, your email and password may leak to the hacker, so I suggest not using the same password you use elsewhere, to make an account here. We would try to mitigate the breach in a transparent and best way possible to me. If you notice any misuse or breach of data, you can immediately contact me via my email address – If you want the data associated to you, like comments email etc to be deleted, please mail me. If it is possible to export and segregate your data, I may send you your data on request via mail. However I would need some way to authenticate that the data actually belongs to you unless I am sure, I won’t oblige to the request.

Thank you for taking time to read this, if you have any more questions please feel free to email me –
