Who we are

‘We’ is actually, ‘me’. I simply run a blog. I am publishing a Privacy Policy to adhere to best practices on the internet. My website address is: https://ModernSurvivalBlog.com

What personal data may be collected and why

(referenced in the following sections)


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. 

Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using a website, with the drawback that certain features may not function properly without the aid of cookies. Consult your browser settings documentation about how to do this.

Users and Comments

We no longer implement a User login system on the site. Therefore no related information is collected in this regard. There are no user login or comment cookies. Any previous user login data has been permanently deleted from the server database.

If and whenever the comment system is enabled, and when visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address assigned to them at the time of leaving the comments, and the user agent strings of the browsers they used – to help spam detection.

Published content and comments are stored indefinitely unless deletion/removal is requested by the original author or commenter.

Spam Filter

This site uses the world’s most popular Anti-Spam service, Akismet, to reduce and eliminate Comment spam. Although the Comment system is no longer used on the site, it will be used if and whenever comments are enabled. You may visit the Akismet site to examine their privacy policy:
