We use Google Analytics to capture anonymous data about users who visit our website. This may give us information about how you came to our site, what pages your viewed or other events. This lets us understand where users are coming from (e.g. search engine vs shared links on Facebook) and which reviews are the most popular. The vast majority of modern websites use similar tracking. If you wish, you can opt out with Google directly here:
If you wanted to reduce the effect of cookies you could also just browse with incognito windows and cookies would be removed once you exit the browser.
WordPress Based Cookies
P2Pblog is a WordPress based site, and there are some typical WordPress cookies to remember things like:
- Name and email addresses in comment forms
- A comment form cookie which remembers a user’s name or email address
- Name and email addresses submitted by user by using a contact form
Again, WordPress powers a large proportion of the websites on the internet so these are not out of the ordinary.
We may also use other 3rd party cookies from time to time, and we’ll try to keep this up-to-date with the specifics.
As of May 26th 2018 we use no other tracking cookies apart from WordPress and Google Analytics.
We have an email list that is for announcements of P2P lending offers. This data will never be shared with a third party. You can opt out of this list with an opt-out link in every email we send or sending us an email via this email address.
When it comes to GDPR, P2P Blog has made changes to comply with the regulation. We used this as motivation to focus on data minimisation in general on the site.
Any comments or queries about this, please get in touch with me via this email address.
