Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.vertrouwenskwesties.nl.

Your privacy is extremely important to us and we will do what we can to protect it.

  • The only personal data we require is your IP address, which is used for two purposes,
    • Spam detection, after you submit a form
    • Traffic analysis

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


We give visitors the opportunity to not enter any personal data in our forms by requiring only e-mail and username. They can make sure that both do not point to their identity.

If they choose to provide any personal data, we cannot fully guarantee it’s safety. However, we take the protection measures that can be reasonably expected from a small blog site.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect their IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact forms

For the forms we use the “User Submitted Posts” WordPress plugin. We only require the minimum information needed for the proper functioning of the site, other information is entered voluntarily. Nothing is shared with 3rd parties.


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.

If you visit our login page, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. Your login will persist for two weeks when you select “Remember Me”. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Check our cookie policy for more information.

Who we share your data with

When you submit a form, your ip address will be sent to several parties that keep lists of known spammers and bots. Your IP address is only used for this purpose and no other data is shared.

Gravitar is a generally known and widely used service that allows commenters to use the same image and profile across sites. When you have posted a comment, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) is provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

SiteGround is the webhost for the site. Their traffic analyses tool uses the IP of all visitors in order to create overviews of unique visitors and their countries.

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. Currently the site’s creator is the only administrator. If any administrators are added, we will announce it in a post.

What rights you have over your 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. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. 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.

Your contact information

We do not share your contact information for other purposes than spam detection.
