What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If a visitor performs a puchase, they register voluntarily their name, physical adress, telephone number and e-mail adress. These data are necessary for completing the purchase and shipping the product and for contacting the customer if anything unforeseen should happen. All data are stored in a password protected file inside the webshop, only accessible for the owner.

Payments are processed through Stripe, and international payment service. The customer voluntarily enters their credit card number, expiry dato and CVC code. Stripe has a strict privacy policy which can be viewed here.


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, 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 blog 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


This site uses a analytic plugin called WP statistics. It shows the number of visitors and visits per day, which country they are from and from which page they were referred to. It also collects information about browser systems used, the latest search words and the most poplular posts. All data are completely anonymous. These data are important because we need to know which post topics you like and if we should continue to translate everything into English.

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. Data from puchases in file and in paper version are kept as long as required according to Norwegian bookkeping standards, which is ten years.

What rights you have over your data

If you have made a purchase 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.
