Privacy Notice and Information Disclosures

I – Megan Jarrett The Person Who Runs Dittrich Diary – believes very strongly in keeping your personal information confidential.

What information is collected?

This website, DittrichDiary, collects as little information as possible from users who post comments. It will typically collects a name, your own website if declared, and an e-mail address. This isn’t a requirement for you to visit the site and read my blog posts, but comments are always nice and welcomed.

Your information doesn’t get written down anywhere else or kept anywhere apart from that comment section.

Cookies / IP address tracking

Dittrich Diary, like every other website on the world wide web, uses cookies to uniquely identify users for the purpose of log files, posting comments, and potentially other stuff like voting on the site.

I don’t keep any personal information, cookies are simply a way to identify your computer and not to identify you.

Who Do I share the information with?

No-One UNLESS specifically required, i.e. to arrange delivery of a competition prize, because not being able to do that would make you entering the competition pointless.

If you sign up for notifications of new blogs by email then of course you will get those but I don’t do newsletters or group email send outs.

Opting out

If I do start sending newsletters then please just let me know you don’t want them and I will remove you.

Third party advertising

I have third party adverts on my site (if I have set it up correctly), and that third party may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., IP addresses, click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to Dittrich Diary and possibly some other websites (I don’t know) in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.

Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics. I know what you’re reading, for how long, and where in the world you are reading from (Probably the UK). I can even tell your age bracket and your gender (you’re probably a woman) from this but I don’t know anything else.


For information about how I make money from this blog, I don’t, most [AD] marked posts are gifted and on the rare occasion I make anything it isn’t enough to live on, or even buy a takeaway for the family.

Reviews and sponsored posts

Where I have been sent a product, given tickets, or been paid to write it, I will always mark it as an [AD] and I will mention it is gifted / ad/ pr within the first paragraph of my blog to make it all above board. Sponsored links will be obviously marked too as well as affiliate links.

If editorial control has been passed to a brand, for example where I have been paid to write about a topic and to include specific details, or where the brand has had the final say on copy, this will be disclosed as advertorial or a paid post.
