Would be a great idea

Accordingly, Convealer discloses its privacy practices and doesn’t take your data for granted.

Collected data

Websites want to collect data like you wouldn’t even believe. Convealer reigns it in.


When visitors leave comments on the site the server collects 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. See the Gravatar privacy policy for details. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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


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

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. YouTube). 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.

Server logs

The only behavioral data collected on Convealer is the information your browser sends the server when you ask for a page. This information is stored in server logs and includes your IP address, browser type, time of visit, and a record of each of the pages, images, and other files that you asked for or that were served to show you the page (e.g. CSS stylesheets, JavaScript, etc.). Convealer cannot personally identify you based on these data. Server logs are automatically deleted when they are older than six months.

Data sharing

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. If you comment while using Gravatar, the Gravatar service will receive a hash of your email address. If you view a page that contains embedded content from other websites such as YouTube, then the third party will receive the same data it would get if you visited them directly. This website is hosted on Linode in the United States, so this is where server logs and comment data are stored. No other data is shared from Convealer to any other party.

Retention of 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.

Server logs are automatically deleted every six months.

Your rights

If you leave comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data Convealer saved when you commented. I will erase this if you ask me to.
