So now are we here, a page, according to me, isn’t really necessary. Why I don’t think it’s necessary? Because I don’t share any information about visitors, with anybody, We don’t use Google’s tracking, advertisement or analytics, but This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. no Facebook trackers, no advertisement logging.

What DO I store about YOU? When you visit the site, your IP IP is the Internet Protocol Address that has been assigned to your computer.. & browser features are stored by my security systems IF you do something that the system thinks are odd/suspect see here
If you left a comment or a Heartan image of an heart (not real heart) You can send a Heart to a post instead of commenting, or you can do both…The system logs your IP IP is the Internet Protocol Address that has been assigned to your computer.. ( for legal reasons (threat and stuff)), it also creates a cookie A cookie is a text file that are stored in your computer, usually it contains information about your visit to a page. Next visit to the same site, the cookie can be read and the site can load the information it saved the last time on your computer to remember that you have done just that, so you can’t leave another heart.. It also gives your a possibility to change your comment within the following 10 minutes. I’ve also chosen to use Google’s reCAPTCHA and Akismet anti-spam (Read their Privacy policy) to protect us from spam.
If you create a post, will all your information (that you fill in), will be stored, and some of it displayed on the site. (We do not display your email or your name* Unless you sign your eulogy of course..)
If you contact us, the information you leave will be sent to our PERSONAL computer, where one of us answer your email, and keep the mail(s) for future communications/references. We do notdo not , I repeat DO NOTDO NOT share your email or ANY other information you leave to us, UNLESS it is deemed to be an illegal threat or something like that, then the information will be forwarded to the local authorities.

Your photo(s), is, and will ALWAYS be your property, and we do not steal then and earn money by selling them (like some pages do)

Now to the big bad wolf!

I’ve been avoiding google as much as I can, because the store and sell everything about everyone.
However, I need to use their reCAPTCHA, to protect the system against bots & robots.

So on pages where you can post/comment stuff, reCAPTCHA will be used.

You can click on their logo to read their privacy policy.

Thanks to the stupid EU and some other states, we have to inform you about all this, when it’s really basic knowledge, that site stores cookies and information about your visit (most of them also sells that data, WE DON’T), so here are the information the legal way: (just for our protection)

What's a Betatest?

Betatest is when somebody need to test their creation (usually a program/app) and releases it to the public so they can test it, and detect issues/bugs.

Now, this isn’t normally used on webpages, but since there are only ONE coder here (me), and I would like to test that everything works & looks as it should.

So therefore I decided to open it ahead of the schedule (June ¹st)

Everything should work as intended, but new features, changes might occur during this time…

IF you find anything that’s not working or isn’t displayed correctly, please contact me..
