Who we are
Our website address is: https://ratherquiet.com.
To understand and measure our website performance and interaction with our readers, we use Matomo Analytics. Matomo is a privacy-oriented analytics tool that is GDPR compliant.
What We Collect and Receive
In order for us to provide you the best possible experience on our website, we need to collect and process certain information. Depending on your use of the website, that may include:
- Contact us via email — for example, when you send us questions or comments, or report a problem, we will collect your name, email address, message, etc. We use this data solely in connection with answering the queries we receive.
- Usage data — when you visit our site, we will store: the website from which you visited us from, the parts of our site you visit, the date and duration of your visit, your anonymised IP address, information from the device (device type, operating system, screen resolution, language, country you are located in, and web browser type) you used during your visit, and more. We process this usage data in Matomo Analytics for statistical purposes, to improve our site and to recognize and stop any misuse.
How we protect your data
Our website uses industry-standard security measures. Your information is secure as it moves into and within our system. All transmissions are encrypted using industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which establishes an encrypted link between our servers and your web browser. Data within our private system is accessible only by our team.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
Your data will be securely stored for the duration of the Rather Quiet project or until you request that we remove it. This includes your website usage data as well as your subscription details. You can unsubscribe from our emails at any time by clicking the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of every email.
You have the right to be informed of Personal Data processed by us via Matomo, a right to rectification/correction, erasure and restriction of processing. You also have the right to ask from us a structured, common and machine-readable format of Personal Data you provided to us. We can only identify you via your email address and we can only adhere to your request and provide information if we have Personal Data about you through you having made contact with us directly and/or you using our site and/or service.
Opt-out of website tracking
You can opt out of being tracked by our Matomo Analytics instance below. Opting out means we won’t track your activity on our website but it also means we won’t be able to learn from your interaction and create a better website suited to your needs. Remember, Matomo anonymises your IP address, so we don’t know who you are; we just want to know what you’re up to.
You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.
