Who we are

My name is Najida and this is my blog Life As Najida. You can contact me via email:

My website address is and an outline of all the data collected and cookies are mentioned below.

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, which is email and name. This is to make sure we can detect spam. Also, the browser user agent string is collected to help spam detection and IP address.

An anonymised 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.

We do not share any information provided. It is solely for you to comment and you can choose if you want us to send an email to be notified when I reply. This is done through a tick box underneath the comment. The default of the tick box: unticked.

Follow Forms

Visitors emails are required when following Life As Najida. This is by choice. However, if one does not want to receive emails from Life As Najida, they have an option to unsubscribe on the bottom of the email that was sent to them. Najida will never send spam emails and the subscriber will only receive an email every time Najida posts on This form is connected to Jetpack and you can read their Privacy policy here.

This is the same principle for the Newsletter sign up form and they will receive a maximum of 4 emails per month and it is accessible for the Freebies page. The email will only be sent when new freebies are available on The sign-up form is made and controlled on MailChimp and you can read their Privacy Policy by clicking here.

All this is the same for when visitors follow via the BlogLovin’ follow form. Data collected (the emails) are never distributed to third parties or anyone else.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. A Visitor isn’t able to upload any sort of media on my blog.  Visitors who visit the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website but must give credit to to the person Najida.

Contact forms

Contact forms tell visitors to leave their name and email when contacting me. This is because the contact form sends your message to my Gmail ( and in order for me to reply, you need to leave your name and email. I do not share nor withhold your email or name. Once the conversation is over, the messages just stay in my inbox.

Life As Najida uses WordPress, however, it doesn’t collect any analytical date. The hosting provider of Life As Najida,, collects analytical data of how many times a link has been clicked or a page/post has been viewed. This is also the same with the plugin/s: Jetpack (view my JetPack Privacy Policy by clicking here), Pinterest Pin it plugin, Yoast.

Who we share your data with

WordPress shares no data with anyone or third parties. does not share any data with anyone or third parties. Any brands I have worked with in the past and any brands I work with, in the future, have NO access to any visitors data.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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 (e.g if there is an inappropriate username, I will be able to remove it. I do not tamper with any other profile information).

Any comments made by a visitor in the past is stored in the Plugin UpdraftPlus Backups. This is in case of any malfunction error so then I can retain all my posts, pages and comments up and running.

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.
