Who We Are

Our website address is: https://oakobsessions.com

We post various types of media and information related to the topics in which we are interested.  

Personal Data Collected And Why


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.


As of this posting, uploading images is not an available option for visitors to this site.  In the event this option is made available, please be aware that you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.  Other visitors to the website may download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Contact forms are not currently used on this blog.  If and when they are added, this section of the Privacy Policy will be updated.     


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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles and posts on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, links, shortcuts to other social sites, 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


No data is collected by oakobsessions.com for analytics.

Who we share your data with

We do not share data other than what is necessary to perform the secure technical processes and interactive functions of our website.  

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.

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.
