What is SebWalak.com

It is a website built around blog.

It is a statically generated website, which means there is no database or other, typical infrastructure behind it. Basically it is just a set of HTML pages, JavaScript files and static web assets. Storing visitor’s data is not the most natural thing to do with a website like that.

Declaration

At SebWalak.com we consider the privacy of our visitors to be extremely important. This privacy policy document describes in detail the types of personal information is collected and recorded by SebWalak.com and how we use it.

We don’t hold personal information on our systems but some of the features we use have the ability to transfer such information to third parties. Embedding such features is a common practise across the Internet. It allows for easy extension of the feature-set of the website, modularisation of solutions, centralisation of data processing and/or integration between systems.

In case of SebWalak.com the features we use are:

  • advertisements
  • search across site
  • analytics

The above features use cookies to provide their functionality. SebWalak.com also sets cookies, more information in Cookie policy and Cookies.

Our Advertising Partners

Some of our advertising partners may use cookies and web beacons on our site. Our advertising partners include

  • Google AdSense
  • Google AdWords
  • DoubleClick (by Google)
  • Google Custom Search (ad sponsored)

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a users’s previous visits to this website or other websites. Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to users of this website based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.

Our intention is for all ads served on this site to be served as non-personalised (even after obtaining visitors’s consent). This means that the ads you see should only relate to the context of page they are on, the query that visitor is searching for, the details of the request that retrieved the advertisement or search results, etc. Ads on this website should not relate to previous visits to this or any other website.

If you suspect this setting is not respected please let us know with what behavior has been observed and what was expected. You may also opt out of personalised advertising while you are logged into your Google account, by visiting Ads Setting. Alternatively, you can opt-out of some third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalised advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.

Google’s Privacy Policy is available here.

Please note: until the explicit consent is given the ads won’t be served.

We use Google Custom Search (GCS) to provide search functionality on SebWalak.com.

GCS is a search functionality with embedded ads. I have no fine grained control that allows me to turn off ads and just provide the search. Therefore the search is turned off until the consent is given.

Even when the visitor gives consent, the ads that will appear in the search results should be non-personalised.

If you suspect this setting is not respected please let us know with what behavior has been observed and what was expected. You may also opt out of personalised advertising while you are logged into your Google account, by visiting Ads Setting. Alternatively, you can opt-out of some third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalised advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.

Google’s Privacy Policy is available here.

Please note: until the explicit consent is given the search (and ads) won’t be served.
