Privacy Policy


Welcome to Hill Days!
Your privacy is very important to me. This Privacy Policy explains who I am and how I, and how WordPress, process information about the visitors of this site in connection with the services provided through WordPress, Jetpack, MailChimp and Google Analytics.

Who we are

I’m Ina and my website address is: You can contact me directly at

In this document visitors to this website are referred to as ‘visitors’, the website is referred to as the ‘site’ and the site author is referred to as ‘I’.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Personal data means any information capable of identifying an individual. It does not include anonymised data.


When visitors leave comments on Hill Days, the site collects the data shown in the comments form, as well as 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 then visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

The site collects the information visitors enter onto the contact form. I will use this information to answer your inquiry/comment. The information is processed through the JetPack WordPress plugin. You can find the JetPack Privacy Centre here.
