Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are not interested in collecting any data beyond the bare essentials to make this site function properly. If you leave a comment under an article, your name and comment are displayed publicly. This info is stored along with your email address. The latter is only requested and stored along with the comment to help prevent spam. We do not gather mail addresses separately, do not send unsollicited emails and do not share this data with anyone. Genevieve Gorder Home uses Google Analytics to monitor traffic. Banner space is sold in order to help compensate for some of the time and effort put in to create this site and the articles on it and the clicking behavior can be tracked by the Advanced Ads plugin. No personal tracking data is shared with any third parties. Finally, personalized Google Ads are shown at the bottom of the articles by Google using browsing history stored in cookies that were left previously on other sites.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form (name, email address and the actual comment), and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. The name and comment content are regarded as public information. The email address is not displayed publicly and is only stored to help prevent spam. It will never be shared with anyone.

The information such as the email address is used only in order to be able to reply. The information is not shared with third parties nor used for marketing purposes.


When first visiting Genevieve Gorder Home, you are asked to consent to using cookies. When agreeing, a cookie is placed to avoid the message popping up again on subsequent visits. This cookie has no purpose other than this. As long as not agreed, no cookies will be placed. If you leave a comment on our 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 from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content, so far, this is limited to a couple of videos only. 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.

Who we share your data with

We do not share any personal info with any other parties.

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. Information entered via a contact form is not stored directly but the email that is generated from this is retained indefinitely, in line with any normal mail communications.

What rights you have over your data

You may request that we erase particular comments or all comments, along with which any personal data is also erased (names and email addresses are only stored along with the comments).

How we protect your data

The Genevieve Gorder Home website is encrypted using SSL (resulting in https, rather than http). This is done using a plugin called Really Simple SSL. Really Simple SSL and Really Simple SSL add-ons do not process any personal identifiable information, so the GDPR does not apply to these plugins or usage of these plugins on your website.
