What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.


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.

Contact forms

If you fill in the information in the contact form from our site and send it, I will collect the data displayed in the contact form and connect it with the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s user agent to help check spam comments.


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 visit our login page, 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 browser.

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.

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 site is statistically analyzed by Google Analytics and Jetpack. The content of the analysis includes the visitor’s IP, location, and the user agent string of the browser.

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.

How we protect your data

Makeraze attaches great importance to the security of your personal information. When using the website’s online services, encryption technologies such as “Transport Layer Security” (TLS) are used to protect your personal information during data transmission. Makeraze will use computer systems with restricted access to store your personal information, and will store these computer systems in places with physical security measures.

When you use some Makeraze products, services, or applications, or post information through Makeraze discussion boards, chat rooms, or social networking services, other users can read, collect, or use the personal information and content you share. In such cases, you are solely responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit. For example, if you list your name and email address in a discussion forum article, this information will be made public. Please use this type of function with care.

What data breach procedures we have in place

1. Withdrawal of consent

You can withdraw your consent to the collection, use, and/or disclosure of personal data by submitting a written notice to us. If the consent related to the use of any or all personal data is withdrawn, we may not be able to continue to provide our services.

2. Access and correction of personal data

To access and/or correct personal data that we currently own or control, please submit a request to us and we will make the necessary arrangements. Unless it is reasonably believed that the correction should not be made, we will correct the personal information as soon as practicable. If we determine that this is reasonably required by applicable law, we may forward the corrected data to other organizations disclosed within 12 months before the correction.

3. Protection of personal data

Maintaining the confidentiality of personal data is of the utmost importance to us. As part of our efforts to protect the personal data we own, we have formulated reasonable security arrangements and technical risk management policies to prevent unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal, and(or) similar risks. We also impose confidentiality obligations on employees’ employment terms

4. Retention of personal data

As long as the purpose for collecting or using such data continues, or is required for legal or commercial purposes, we only retain personal data. Generally speaking, unless otherwise required by law or other compulsory government agencies or for the purpose of legal proceedings, we will not keep personal data for longer than necessary after the original purpose of collecting personal data.
