The privacy of visitors to this blog is very important to me and I have put measures in place to make my blog GDPR compliant due to the new E.U. regulation coming into effect on May 25th 2018.

Here are details on what information I receive and collect from visitors to Dolly Dowsie ( I will never sell your personal information to third parties.

You can view my Privacy Policy here - Dolly Dowsie Privacy Policy but here is also a breakdown of what information I collect and what third-party applications I use to gather information about visitors to my site.

The Data I Collect and What I Do With It

Your computers IP address.
Your geographic location (approximate, not exact).
The site which referred you to my site.
Your internet browser details.
How long you visited my site for.
What content you viewed on my site.
Other personal data which you choose to share with me via web forms.

The only application I use for collecting this data is Google Analytics. Google Analytics can store data for a minimum of 25 months, but may store it for longer.

I use Google Analytics to track how well my site is doing traffic-wise, what people are reading and how they found my site. I do not share personal user information with third parties but may share grouped information, such as the demographics of my visitors (age range and geographic location), with brands who wish to collaborate with me and who ask for this information. Your personal information will not be compromised or shared with anyone.

Giveaways and Winner Information

I sometimes run giveaways on my site and these are conducted via Gleam. Gleam collects user information and a winner is picked at random via the Gleam widget - I then announce them as the winner via the giveaway widget. What is displayed is the winner's first name and the initial of their second name. No other information is visible.

The terms of my giveaway state that by entering, entrants are giving their permission for their name, address and email to be sent to the person sending their prize. This is often a person at a PR agency who represents the brand giving away the prize or someone from the brand themselves. Winners information is not shared with anyone else but this person.
