Privacy Policy

About your privacy

In a nutshell, in plain English, using no legalese:

  • We run a web server and logs are created. This is standard stuff and usually not further harvested by us.
  • We use standard cookies as needed to log in if you have an account or navigate the site. For further details please visit the WordPress site or see below.
  • We have used and may use again Google Analytics to gain knowledge where users come from prior to visiting our page and which pages they look at. Unfortunately Google may use this data to track you across any other site that uses Google analytics (pretty much the entire Web). You may want to occasionally delete all cookies set by Google and its affiliates. This is a general privacy suggestion that goes beyond using our site.
    For additional info on how Google collects data, see privacy info provided by Google.
  • Sites that have content linked to or from this site such as Instagram and/or Facebook may track your visit using their own tracking mechanism. Here we suggest the same as for Google: Review cookies collected by your browser regularly and delete what you don’t want.
  • We use plugins to add features to the site. Some of these plugins may track your visits, usually using the same concepts or even leveraging cookies set by Google and other big sites. We do not control this, don’t knowingly use this and have no insight into this.
  • May the Vine be with you!

Some legalese “light”

Who we are

Our website address is:
This is Paula Maia’s personal Website. She decides what she posts and what if any comment she accepts.

What data we collect and how we use it

By default WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However some plugins may collect personal data.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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

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.

If 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.


We currently do not accept comments and hence no comment data is collected. If we change our policy and start accepting comments:

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Embedded content from other websites

We currently embed content from Instagram and may add other content.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We currently do not use but have used and may use again Google Analytics. For info on how Google collects data, see privacy info provided by Google.

Who we share your data with

We do not knowingly share data with anybody. By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. However, we have no control over data collected by embedded analytics software or 3rd party plugins that we use and may track your visit across sites.


There could be more but as far as we know, to the best of our knowledge, we believe to have disclosed relevant privacy information
