Privacy Policy

Keeping things simple. You can understand this site's privacy policy without needing a lawyer, but you are free to refer to one if you want.

This site is owned by Mustafa Sheikh on web address: https://mustafasheikh.com.

Comments

There is no commenting feature on this site. Not even on the Journal (Blog) page. Naturally, because you do not submit any comment form, there is no data fetched from you.

Media

Similar to comments, there is no image upload feature on this site. It’s mainly my personal portfolio and journaling site. This means, no uploading from the user (you) end. No upload means no data recieved from you.

Cookies

This site uses functional cookies but none that store your personal data. For example, there is no Google or other analytics installed directly on to this site. Which means, I do not know when you (the user) visited the site. The site uses QuicCloud CDN which by-default recieves analytics on the geographic location of user. It tells how many users visited from which city. But it does not store or see any identifiable data or any data point that is directly linked to you, the user. If you like you can read QuicCloud’s privacy policy by clicking here.

Embedded content from other websites

Some of the journal entries and portfolio pages on this site 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.

These websites (for example YouTube) 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. As an owner of the site, I have no control or relation with any of these third party sites (for example YouTube) Just like you, I use them as a service and their lawyers and legal department are responsible on how they treat the data.

In some cases, some media (images and videos) are served through a DAM service called Cloudinary, which by the way is also GDPR compliant. They do not store your personal data either, but you can also read their privacy policy on https://cloudinary.com/privacy

Who I share your data with

Nobody. Literally. I do have a few friends yes, but we never talk about your data.

How long we retain your data

Since I do not store and collect any data from you. There is no policy on data retention time.

When and if you purchase a product

Yes there is a store page where you can purchase digital products. In the store page, the when you purchase a product, the payment goes through a service called Lemon Squeezy. They ask for your email address, and other details and store them in their own way. You can read Lemon Squeezy’s Terms by clicking here. You can read their privacy policy here

What rights you have over your data

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. Any data stored by a third party service (for example but not limited to QuicCloud, LemonSqueezy or YouTube) should be liaise with them.

Litespeed Cache

All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
