What does Carola Bakt Zoethoudertjes use your data for?

Communication with the readers takes place via the contact option on the website. The information you enter here is necessary to be able to contact you for an answer and will only be used for this purpose. When entering the form you leave an IP address of the browser user agent string to help spam detection. A lot of spam is spread via these types of forms.  We handle your data with care and will never pass it on to third parties.

When registering for the newsletter, you leave an email address. You will receive an email with every new message. These email addresses are carefully stored in the Wix program on which the website runs. Wix is checked daily for new updates to prevent bugs and hackers. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter via the email you receive with every message.

Google Analytics keeps track of the surfing behavior of visitors. Personally, I only use this program to see how many visitors visit the website, when and would like to know if the visitors come more often. That way I can also better estimate which articles best suit Carola Bakt Zoethoudertjes.
In the case of a collaboration, the company in question also wants to know this information. With a collaboration, tracking codes are placed in the article by the advertiser. These keep the same data as Google Analytics.


Tips for you

If you post a photo to one of the Carola Bakt Zoethoudertjes networks such as Facebook, remember that it sometimes contains more information than just a photo. Sometimes other readers can also download this photo and see data associated with the photo such as location data.

If you prefer to surf privately, it may be useful to surf the web anonymously. Every browser has a possibility so that you do not store cookies and sometimes you are not even tracked by the browser. You are never completely anonymous because your employer or internet provider can see which pages you visit.
