Privacy Policy

Who is Kyle’s Work?

This entire site is created and maintained by one person, Kyle Ramirez. If another author is contributing, I will make sure to properly attribute that content. I will also make the reader aware of any paid content.


Readers are welcome to leave a comment on certain articles, subject to approval. When leaving a comment, I collect:

  • Name
    Allows others readers know who you are
  • E-mail address
    Used for direct replies and comment notifications. The e-mail is also converted to an anonymous hash and is sent to Gravatar to display your public avatar if you have that set up. 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.
  • IP address
    Helps me protect against spam or ban abuse.
  • Website URL
    You can optionally leave a website URL. If it’s relevant to your comment, I will leave it in. Otherwise I will just remove it.

Only the name of the comment author is displayed publicly.


If you leave a comment, 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. YouTube videos, Instagram 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.

Google Analytics & Optimize

I use Google Analytics to know more about how people find my site, how people use my site, and to track how well my site converts visitors. Though I am tracking activity, I’m not linking your activity to your identity in any way. I also use Google Optimize to conduct A/B tests on my site. Read Google’s privacy policy here:

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where I send your data

Comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
