Who we are

Our website address is: http://thedailydose.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

Contact forms

We use contact forms to let you contact us directly and most effectively. We do not sell or rent your contact details to anyone.


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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


You may choose to opt-in to subscribe to our email list(s), in which case your email address is stored on our secure and encrypted email lists, which we do not store locally. Rather, they are stored by professional external email service provider(s) like MailChimp, GetResponse, ConstantContact, SendGrid, WordPress and others, in secure facilities and servers that maintain the highest industry benchmarks.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics and other analytics software available on the market to effectively improve your user experience on our website.

Who we share your data with

Aside from WordPress, Google Analytics and Search Console, we may use other approved 3rd party industry-leading software providers who never see your personal data. Any personal data shared with any external database are things you have opted-in to. For example, if you use Twitter or Facebook and you post a comment or tweet from our site to twitter, then obviously your twitter or facebook preferences are relevant. As we do not control your chosen settings, that’s simply dependent on what you use and set.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, 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.

Where we send your data

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

Your contact information

You can reach on us on our Contact page.

Additional information

Terms of Use

When you use our site or any of our services, you agree to follow the rules, which also includes being nice and polite. If you can’t do that, then please do not use our site or any of our services, as that would be a violation of our Terms of Use. Violations will be remedied accordingly, under the law of the relevant jurisdiction(s).

Advertisement Policy

Any ads we run comply with industry standards and groups like the IAB, Social, and other platforms and major advertising organizations.

How we protect your data

We do not store your information so there is nothing for us to protect.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We do not store your data so there is no data to breach.

What third parties we receive data from

We use Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and other approved third-party software providers that provide the usual data that practically every website receives from any number of data providers.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Aside from ads that you may personalize at your own choice on the networks that show you their ads, we do not profile you in any way. It’s all you. Our site may show you content relevant to your past searches, but we do not use that information to profile you in any way or to automate decision making for you or anyone else on the site.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

We comply with all relevant disclosure requirements.

We don’t necessarily comply with ridiculous requirements of random jurisdictions because they may not apply to us and we may not target their geographies anyway. If users from restricted areas visit our site, there is little to nothing we can do to stop that, and we would not want to stop it anyway, because we believe people should have the right to access any publicly available website or information source, without hindrance.

Bottom line: Most importantly, we care about maintaining your privacy, and we make every reasonable effort and then some, to do so.
