Where do you use this information?
We are using Goolgle Analytics to store the data, and database table otherwise for the location and the keywords.
How do you protect sensitive identifiable information?
We do not collect sensitive identifiable information as passwords, credit card numbers, etc… as we do not offer user accounts and we do not sell products.
How can I find out what you know about me?
As we do not register your IP address or a bash number that would be linked to your visit, your data is anonymous and is not accessible.
How long do you keep the data ?
We erase the data (country’s location and queries) after 3 months. We keep the Google Analytics data (also anonymous) for several years.
Why do you collect it?
The Google Analytics data is used to know if we are well referenced, how to improve the content, the website navigation. We are using your country location to propose pictures of products associated to a link that can refer you to a store operating in your country (Amazon and Ebay) if possible. We are using your keywords to create statistics about the most popular search queries; it helps us to know what kind of articles to create.
