About Analytics

Very Gomez uses Matomo Analytics to provide usage data to help understand how this website is used. Because we care about your privacy, the Matomo Analytics software runs directly from Very Gomez so no data is ever shared with third parties, unlike other analytics tools. This instance of Matomo is configured so that we collect no personal data, IP addresses are anonymised and no tracking cookies are served to your device. The only Matomo cookie we use is an essential non-tracking session cookie, MATOMO_SESSID, which is described above.


Personal Data

Since there is no account registration at verygomez.com, I don't collect any data from you unless you choose to fill in a comment form, in which case the details you provide will be stored in the database for as long as your comment is displayed on this site. You may request that I remove your identifying details at any time, contacting me via the contact form and I will do so, though I reserve the right to leave the comment itself displayed. Use of the contact form sends an email directly to me which will be used only for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry. I will never share, sell, rent or otherwise trade personally identifiable information with third parties, except where legally required to do so by law enforcement.
