What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Registration, comments, and contact forms, are turned off. However, if you, having no account, try to log-in, the plugin, installed in order to avoid the website being directly hacked by entering the administrator’s account (WPS Limit Login), will automatically detect your IP address and block it for 12 hours after 7 failed attempts to log-in. In that case your IP address will be visible to the Administrator of YouGrammar.com.

Registration

Nobody, apart from the Administrator himself, is allowed to create an account on YouGrammar.com. That means that Yougrammar.com’s Administrator doesn’t have any list of users names or e-mails, and that there are no accounts apart from those created and exclusively used by the administrator himself.

Social Media Share Buttons – Social Media Plugin “Shariff Wrapper”

The site YouGrammar.com offer you the possibility to use the so called “Social Media Buttons”. To protect your data, we use a solution called “Shariff”. The share buttons are implemented as static images, which contain a link to the corresponding social network site. If you click on such buttons, you will be redirected to the respective social network site in the same way as normal hyperlinks would do. Only in that moment the provider of the social network site you have just been redirected to, will get information about you, for example your IP address. If you do not click on such share buttons, no data will be transmitted to any other website. In order to know how social network websites use your personal data you need to read their privacy policy. More information about the plugin and the Shariff solution can be found here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/shariff/

On YouGrammar.com are available share buttons for the following services: Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus, Tumblr, Pinterest, Telegram, Qzone, Weibo.

Embedded content from other websites

YouGrammar.com may sometimes provide on its articles and pages hyperlinks to redirect you to some different websites such as Facebook.com, YouTube.com, etc. those hyperlinks are always visible “in full” so that you will be able to know where you are going to be redirected in case you click on one of those.

Sample image:

If you click on these hyperlinks, you must be aware that you will be going to visit a different website, and that you have to read the privacy policy of those websites to know how they use your personal data. If you don’t want to be redirected to other websites you should not click on those hyperlinks.

No cookies are stored on your computer for those statistics. No other statistic systems are used by this website, no analytic plugins are installed on the yougrammar.com wordpress. YouGrammar.com hosting service is “1and1 IONOS SE”.
