Who I am

My website address is: https://www.kalemm.com.

The purpose of this website is to present myself and my work. There are no direct commercial intentions, such as offering e-commerce functionality, and I do not collect any personally identifiable information beyond your name and e-mail address should you choose to contact me.

However, my website does use a range of technologies, from WordPress plug-ins to embedded content from other sites, that make it possible for other service providers to gain certain insights into what visitors on my website are doing. Details follow below.

Collection of personal data


Cookies are pieces of code stored in visitors’ browsers. My website will ask your consent for cookie usage on your first visit. If you regularly delete cookies in your browser – which I highly recommend – you may see the cookie prompt again.

My website uses certain types of cookies for basic functionality as well as embedding Google Maps or YouTube videos.

For details, please take a look at the EU Cookie Policy page, which is automatically generated by the cookie consent plug-in Complianz, and lists all cookies my website currently employs.

I do not use any cookies for cross-site tracking or marketing purposes.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Contact forms

If you choose to contact me via a contact form you name and e-mail address will be collected. Please note that by contacting me you are opting in to the collection of this data. I assume this is in your interest as the whole purpose of a contact form is to enable me to get in touch with you.


My website uses basic WordPress analytics via the Jetpack plug-in. For this purpose, Automattic, the company making the plug-in, will collect the following data: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. The same plug-in also tracks users’ activities, collecting the follwing data, according to Automattic: “Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by WordPress.com), outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country.When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file we use for Stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.).” More information can be found here: https://jetpack.com/support/wordpress-com-stats/

Who we share your data with

All analytics data are captured by Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com and maker of the Jetpack plug-in. The company states that “[s]tats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) – are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used only for the purpose of powering this feature.”
