Who we are

This is a personal blog produced with WordPress and managed by Ionos.

My website address is: https://theartbeaute.com.

I take your right to privacy very seriously. I am based in the UK, which is currently goverend by the rules of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

I do not aim to collect or process any personal data with this website. From my perspective, visitors to this website are completely anonymous. I may use web-analytical tools, as part of the package supplied by Ionos. However, I do not use this website to record, collect or store any personally identifiable data.

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.


When visitors leave comments on the site I 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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.

These websites 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.


This website is produced with WordPress. WordPress does not collect any analytical data.

This website is hosted via the WP Business product offered by 1&1 Ionos Limited. Many web hosting accounts collect some anonymous analytics data. Ionos does not store personal data of website visitors, therefore no conclusions can be drawn about the individual visitors. Ionos SiteAnalytics collects data exclusively for statistical evaluation and technical optimization of the website.

Who we share your data with

No data is passed onto third parties.

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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What third parties we receive data from

I do not purchase personal data from other people or organisations.
