Who We Are
The owner of this blog is Ruth Nchekei and shall be referred to as ‘I’, ‘We’, ‘Our’ throughout this page.
Personal and non-personal information we collect and how we use it
The personal information we collect includes your name and email address. Nonpersonal information we collect includes your device type, IP address and URL pages of this blog you may have visited.
The personal information is only collected when you contact us with a query or when you subscribe to our email opt-ins. By providing your personal information, you give us permission to send you information centered around blog posts we already published or yet to publish. You also give us permission to send you information about products or services we create. In the event you do not want to receive information you subscribed to, you can always opt-out.
Non-personal information is collected by third party analytics tools and cannot be used to track you.
How your information is protected
While we ensure our site is protected by SSL always, please be aware that the internet is not 100% safe and we won’t be liable for any hacking or acts of ommission or commission on your part or any third party that’s beyond our control.
We use Google Analytics to collect your non-personal information so as to know how to improve our content. Please read this guideline to understand how your non-personal information is used.
When visitors 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.
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.
We use cookie notice to collect cookies.
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.
To all new users besides the admin.
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. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.
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.
Also, if you opt-in to our email list, we shall keep your personal information as long as you show interest in the information we send you by opening the emails. If you have not opened emails for 10 consecutive periods we shall assume you want out and shall remove your personal information from our list.
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
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.
