Privacy Policy

It's not secret. It's just not our bussiness.


In a world where everybody is overexposed, we value your privacy.

The privacy and security of your personal information is extremely important to us and will do our utmost to protect it.

With this Privacy policy we want to inform you about the type of personal data that is collected and received through our website www.projectazraq.org and about how we use, share, retain and protect it.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Personal information is any information that is clearly about a particular person, like your name, address, e-mail address or phone number… but also is the information collected about visitors preferences and usage of the website.


When visitors leave comments on the blog “On the Waterfront” 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.

Google Fonts

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is an interactive directory with more than 800 fonts provided by Google LLC for free use. For a uniform representation of fonts, we use Google Fonts without uploading them to your server.
