Who we are

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As you can imagine the information we collect can typically include your name, email address and previous communications. Note that we do not process payments ourselves (at the moment we use ETSY and paypal): so we don’t collect or store credit card information.

We are mainly using the data we are gathering for the following reasons: (1) understand what posts/content creates more attention, (2) develop new products and update the existing products, (3) inform our marketing processes and expand our visitors.


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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

Who we share your data with

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We don’t share your data with 3rd parties unless we are working with them to provide our services to you. For the moment, we use Google Analytics, JetPack Stats and a Newsletter.

We send infrequent emails that may include info on product updates, news, exclusive offers and discounts or other content related to Inspektor Gadjet or music making in general. Note that if you don’t want to receive communications from us you can always instantly unsubscribe with one click.
