What personal data we collect and why we collect it


Contact Form & Comments

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 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.

Together with your comment or your contact form entry, your personal data will be shared with Akismet to verify for spam. This includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself. Akismet is a product made by Automattic Inc. You can find Automattic’s privacy policy on their site.


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 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 you would visit 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.


We use Google Analytics to see how people are using our site in order to improve user experience. This service stores cookies on your computer. If you don’t want to be tracked, you can opt out by clicking here: Disable Google Analytics.

Who we share your data with



When you sign up for our newsletter, you will be sharing your personal data with us. We collect your first and last name, your email address and the IP address you used when you signed up. This information is stored in our dashboard. Here, we can also see where you signed up for our newsletters: via our site, via Patreon or via our Contact Form.

We use double opt-in, which means that you will receive a confirmation email before you will be receiving any actual newsletters. This is to prevent others from signing you up.  MailChimp will store your data on their servers, which means that they act as a data processor. You can read MailChimp’s privacy policy on their site.


We use the following Google Servies: Google Analytics, YouTube and G Suites for Non-Profits.

Google can share the information they collect with other parties when ordered to do so by law or when third parties work for Google. We have no control over this. We don’t allow Google to use the information for other services than their Analytics service. You have to enable cookies on our site to be able to watch embedded videos. You can do that by clicking on the ‘Accept’ button on our cookie notice bar.

The information collected by Google is anonymous, and your IP address won’t be shared. The collected information is stored on servers maintained by Google in the United States of America. Google is complying with the EU-US Privacy Shield principles. More information about Google’s use of cookies can be found on their website.

Stichting Mollie (Donations via iDEAL)

When you donate, you will be sharing personal data with us. When you use iDEAL on our site for a one-time donation, it will store the amount donated, your payment ID, your transaction ID and the exact time of your donation in our database. Your name, banking data and other sensitive data will not be stored on our site. When you choose a recurring payment, your name and email address will be stored in our database. We use this information to find back your recurring donation in case you want to cancel it.

For our iDEAL payments, we use Stichting Mollie; your personal data, for instance your bank account number, will be stored there, they act as our data processor. We can connect payment and transaction IDs to your name and IBAN over there. You can find Mollie’s privacy statement on their website.


It’s also possible to donate using the PayPal button. In that case, no data will be stored in our database. You will be transferred to PayPal directly via a secure connection. PayPal will process your payment for us at their site. We can see the amount you’ve donated, your name and transaction ID in our PayPal account. We use this information for our financial administration. Read PayPal’s privacy statement.


Finally, the third option to donate goes through Patreon. Patrons donate to Fr. Roderick personally. Patreon collects and processes these donations. In the Patreon dashboard, we can see your name, your email addres, the amount you’ve signed up for and your lifetime donations. If people cancel their donation and fill out an exit survey, we will be able to see that as well.


Part of your data will be stored in Dropbox for internal use. We want to move it out of the cloud as soon as we can, limiting Dropbox only to media storage. Dropbox is working to comply with GDPR.

Stack by TransIP

Our long-term archive has been stored using a Dutch service called Stack by provider TransIP. As a EU based service they comply with GDPR.

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.

If you email us, your email may be processed by Google. We have set G Suites for Non-Profits at our end to delete any data older than 18 months.

If you make a donation, the amount and the account information used for your donation will be processed in our financial records. Dutch law requires us to keep our financial records for seven years.

What rights you have over your data

Under EU law, any data that can be used to identify people is considered personal data. It doesn’t matter whether you are an EU citizen or not. You own all data that is collected about you within the European Union. You have the legal right to inspect any stored data concerning your person, the right to demand correction or deletion, and the right to withdraw your consent for their further use.

EU Privacy law has been harmonised in the General Data Protection Regulation. This guideline lists the minimal requirements for privacy. We comply with the toughest implementation, the German one, in an attempt to cover our entire EU audience.

If you 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.

The Dutch version of GDPR, the Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming, prevents us from sharing personal data with anyone but the owner of that data. Therefore, we require proper identification before sharing personal data requested by you.

Where we send your data

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

Our contact information

You can contact us when you want to exercise your rights.  You can send your request to our Data Protection Officer, Inge Loots. Please use our contact form.

Data Breaches

We realise that everything that is accessible on-line can be accessed unauthorised. This is one of the main reasons why we try to limit the amount of personal data stored on-line as much as we can and use trusted cloud storage that complies with GDPR when we need to. If your data gets compromised, we will notify you immediately via this website and email those affected by the breach as soon as we can.
