Who “we” are
My website address is: https://wyld.media. It’s run by me, Moodthy Alghorairi, based in Madrid, Spain, and trading online as Wyld.Media.
I run my site using WordPress using Jetpack from Automattic to extend the functionality of the site. I collect any email addresses entered into the newsletter form with ConvertKit for the purposes of opt-in email, and I’ve recently switched to Fathom Analytics for EU and GDPR, privacy-focused analytics.
My podcast is hosted on spotify (for now).
These services are the ” third parties” and “partners” I will be referring to when I say “we” from here on out since data may be transferred between these services to serve you content and improve loading speed.
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.
If you upload images to the website (for example, in a comment), 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.
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.
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. This means these other websites will acquire your IP address.
Who we share your data with
Convertkit: our newsletter tool, stores first names if offered, and email addresses by people who’ve chosen to sign up to my newsletter.
Fathom analytics :
Your IP address is only briefly processed, and we (running this website) have no way of identifying you. As per the CCPA, your personal information is de-identified. You can read more about this on Fathom Analytics‘ website.
Your data is kept by Fathom in pseudo-anonymized form for around 48 hours. After that, the hash salts are deleted and there’s no reasonable way for anybody to brute force them.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Email data is cleaned sporadically to remove inactive accounts. Members of the newsletter can unsub or update their contact detail at any time by following the instructions at the bottom of the email.
What rights you have over your data
If you 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.
Convertkit – you can unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions at the footer of an email or sending me a message at
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Fathom Analytics has dedicated, EU and GDPR data-compliant hosting for European visitors.
Listeners to the podcast will have data sent to spotify if they access via the spotify embed. You can search for the podcast on another platform.
