Hello friends, this is Santanu Debnath, an individual who runs this website https://www.bloggingjoy.com. Like you, I do care for my personal information online and that’s why I am sharing the details of how this website deals with your information through this privacy policy.

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


We do use images to explain various facts on our topics from various free resources like pixabay.com sites. Whenever we use images from different sources, we provide due credit for the same.

Contact forms

We use WPForms contact form just to provide visitors a way to contact us. A user can contact us for various reasons like guest post submission, advertising inquiry, any kind of suggestion, asking for help related to WordPress etc. We do collect your name, email address only so that we can revert back to their specific query.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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.

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.

Who we share your data with

We don’t provide any service or sell any product through this website. So, we don’t share any data collected through various ways like opt-in forms, comments, contact form etc.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have subscribed to our newsletter to get our website updates regularly, your personal information will be with us till you want to get notifications from us. Anytime you can unsubscribe to our newsletter using the embedded link used by MailChimp newsletter email format.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Affiliate Disclosure Policy

There is some cost involved in running this blog which includes hosting, design, paid tools and content services etc. To cover all these costs, from time to time, I used to place some affiliate links in my blog contents. It means I will earn a small commission when you buy a product using my affiliate link without any additional cost to you.

We also use third party advertisements on bloggingjoy.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google Adsense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Our aim is to run this blog for the benefit of readers by sharing various tutorials, product reviews, and information related topics. We do collect user’s personal information asking for their consent only. In case you find any sort of violation, you can always reach us first to notify us so that we can fix the same asap without compromising user’s data or personal interest.
