Privacy Policy

Who / what is

The website address
represents the “Jukkasoft blog” (hereinafter referred to as: Jukkasoft). Jukkasoft is a personal blog, with a single author (as of June 2021).

This privacy policy statement may be updated from time to time. Any such update will be accompanied by a new blog post titled “Privacy policy update” on this very same blog. Exempt from a new blog post are such updates, that only contain a renewal of a validity statement of time: such as a month+year, or a more specifically written date.

Blog engine: WordPress

Technically Jukkasoft runs on a hosted WordPress 5.7 by Automattic (updates to the engine will not automatically imply a new privacy statement). This version of WordPress has been technically suited to be GDPR-compliant.  

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments to Posts and Pages

When (if) you as a “visitor” choose to 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 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. Google search (example keywords: “Remove exif tags photos”) offers ways to install software that you can use to remove those EXIF tags, should you want to.

If you have an account and you log in to the site, 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.

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


Who we share your data with

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.

What rights you have over your data

Download your User account data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.

Right to be Forgotten (Your account erased)

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you, at blog. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

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

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

The Akismet antispam plugin decides whether a comment left on this site is coming from a automated spammer bot. Me, as site administrator, based on human judgment, may manually pick these blacklisted comments and decide to accept the comment if it seems valid.
