Why your privacy is important to me

Nordic Notes is a personal blog, owned and operated by me, Nicola Capper.

I am committed to protecting your privacy and will ensure that the information I obtain from you will always be processed and transferred in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.

What information is collected

The types of personal information collected or submitted by Nordic Notes are:

  1. Newsletter

This is the email that you provide if you sign up to receive the Nordic Notes newsletter. This data is held indefinitely. At the bottom of any newsletter however you will always be provided with an opportunity to unsubscribe or update your preferences.

Newsletter information is maintained by WordPress in a contacts list within their server. I only access this list through the web based WordPress dashboard. I do not process your email further, do not download it and do not share it with any third party (e.g. with brands).

WordPress privacy policy and terms can be found here.


When you leave a comment on a Nordic Notes post the data shown in the comments form, including your name (this could be a non-identifiable first/last name, alias or initial) and email address is collected to help detect spam. This data is held indefinitely.

It is also held so I can approve the comment and follow-up on any messages left.

You can also, for your convenience, opt-in to saving your details for future visits. This is saved as part of your cookies.

I do not process this data further and do not store it on my computer. This data is stored within the comments app supplied by WordPress.

  1. Google Analytics and Cookies

I use Google Analytics to analyse how the Nordic Notes website is used. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, small text files placed on your computer, to collect statistical and other information in an anonymous form. Nordic Notes does not hold or process this data.

Full name and address details of competition winners submitted to any Nordic Notes competition will be deleted within 10 days of receiving confirmation of receipt of the prize.

Embedded content, images, videos etc, from other websites may be included in posts on Nordic Notes.
