# 1: Who is the controller of your personal data?

The controller of your personal data is Bożena Krajda, running business as Plispliz Bożena Krajda, ul.Brukowa 16/18, 91-341 Łódź, NIP [Tax ID No.]: 9471022336.

# 2: Who can you contact in matters regarding the processing of your personal data?

When implementing personal data protection in my organisation, a decision was made not to appoint a data protection officer as it is not mandatory in my situation. In matters related to personal data protection and privacy in general, you can contact me by e‑mail at hello@plispliz.com

# 3: What information do I have about you?

Depending on the purpose, I may process the following information about you:

  • full name,
  • residential address,
  • business address,
  • NIP (Tax ID No.),
  • e-mail address,
  • phone number,
  • data contained in your e-mail correspondence,
  • details of orders placed in my online shop,
  • bank account number,
  • IP address,
  • statistics related to received newsletters,
  • favourite e-mail client,
  • interests in specific topics,
  • content of comments/opinions posted on my website.

The scope of data being processed is described precisely for each purpose of the processing. Information in this regard can be found later on in this policy.

In addition, I use tools that collect a range of information about you in connection with your use of my website. This includes in particular the following information:

  • your gender,
  • your approximate location limited to towns/cities,
  • your interests as determined by your online activity.

This information is referred to hereinafter as “Anonymous Information”.

In my opinion, Anonymous Information in itself does not have the nature of personal data because it does not allow me to identify you and I do not collate it with typical personal data I collect about you. Nevertheless, taking into account the strict case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the divided opinions among lawyers, as a precaution, in case Anonymous Information is attributed the nature of personal data, detailed explanations on the processing of this information are also included in this privacy policy.

As Anonymous Information is collected by third-party tools used by me (described in detail later on), it is also processed by the tool providers under the terms resulting from their regulations and privacy policies.

Anonymous Information is also used by particular tool providers to render and improve their services, manage their services, develop new services, measure advertising effectiveness, protect against fraud and abuse, and personalise the content and ads displayed on individual websites, portals and applications.

# 4: How was your personal data obtained?

In most cases you provide it yourself. You do it when you:

  • create your user account,
  • place an order,
  • file a complaint or withdraw from a contract,
  • subscribe to the newsletter,
  • post a comment/opinion,
  • make contact via e-mail,
  • follow social media profiles or interact with content published on social media.

In addition, some information about you may be automatically collected by the tools I use:

  • the website and newsletter mechanisms collect your IP address,
  • the newsletter mechanism collects information about your activity in relation to the content sent to you as part of the newsletter, such as messages opened, clicks on links, etc.,
  • third-party tools using cookies (described in detail later on) collect Anonymous Information about your activities on my website.

# 5: Is your data secure?

I care for the security of your personal data. I have analysed the risks connected with particular processes of the processing of your data, and implemented appropriate security and personal data protection measures. I continuously monitor the condition of my technical infrastructure, train the staff, examine the relevantprocedures and introduce the necessary improvements. Should you have any questions concerning your personal data, feel free to contact me at hello@plispliz.com

User Account – details

When creating your user account, you must enter the required details: your e‑mail address and password. Provision of your personal data is voluntary but necessary to create an account.

You may edit your account data providing more details, in particular information that may be used to place orders, such as your full name, residential address or place of business, NIP (Tax ID No.), telephone number.

If you create an account by integrating it with your social media account, I will gain, based on your prior authorisation, access to some of your social media account data (your full name, e-mail address, profile picture).

In addition, my user account management system records the IP address used by you during the registration of your user account.

You can modify the information about you provided in connection with your user account registration at any time. However, if you have created an account by integrating it with your social media account, the data obtained from that social media account cannot be modified.

The data provided by you in connection with the creation of your account is processed in order to provide you with an electronic service consisting in enabling you to use your user account. This service is provided under a contract concluded on the terms described in the regulations, which means that in this regard the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.

Your data will be stored during the operation of your user account and then until the expiry of the limitation period for claims related to the user account service.

 

Orders – details

When placing an order, you must provide the data necessary for its execution: your e‑mail address, full name, invoice data.

In addition, my order process handling system records the IP address you used placing an order.

Each order is saved in my database, which means that your personal data assigned to an order is also accompanied by order-related information such as the date and time of the order, order ID, transaction ID, subject of the order, price, method and date of payment, date and time of downloading the purchased digital content.

Data collected in connection with an order is processed for the following purposes:

  • performance of the contract concluded by placing an order (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR),
  • invoicing (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR in connection with the relevant legislation governing invoice issuance),
  • inclusion of an invoice in accounting records and fulfilment of other tax and accounting obligations (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR in connection with the relevant legislation governing tax and accounting obligations),
  • inclusion in an archive for the purposes of the establishment, exercise or defence of claims, if any (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

Order data is processed for the time necessary to execute the order and thereafter until the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the concluded contract.

Please also note that I am obliged to keep accounting records, which may contain your personal data, for the period required by law.

You can access your order data at any time. However, it is not possible to rectify this data, save for a debit note or corrective invoice if issued in error. I hereby inform you that I see my overriding interest in storing your order data until the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract.

Recovery of an Abandoned Shopping Cart – details

If you start the ordering process but do not complete it, my system will note this fact and activate the abandoned cart recovery mechanism. This mechanism consists in sending you messages for some time to remind you that you still may complete your order. This action is based on my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. This interest consists in the marketing of my own products and services. You can object to receiving messages as part of the abandoned basket recovery mechanism by clicking on the relevant link contained in the received message.

Complaints and Withdrawal from the Contract – details

If you file a complaint or withdraw from the contract, you provide personal data contained in the complaint or statement of withdrawal from the contract, which includes your full name, residential address, phone number, e-mail address, bank account number. Provision of your data is voluntary but necessary to file a complaint or withdraw from the contract.

The data provided in connection with the filing of a complaint or withdrawal from the contract is used for the purpose of carrying out the complaint procedure or the withdrawal procedure, and then for archival purposes, which constitutes my legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

The data will be processed for the time necessary to carry out the complaint procedure or the withdrawal procedure. Complaint documents will be stored until the expiry of your rights under the warranty for defects. Statements of withdrawal will be stored together with my accounting records for the period required by law.

Newsletter – details

Subscribing to the newsletter you provide your name and e-mail address. Provision of your data is voluntary but necessary to subscribe to the newsletter.

In addition, the newsletter handling system saves your IP address used when subscribing to the newsletter, determines your approximate location and the e-mail client you use, and tracks your actions taken in connection with the messages sent to you. Therefore, I also have information about which messages you have opened, within which messages you have clicked on links, etc.

The data provided by you in connection with subscribing to the newsletter is used for the purpose of sending you the newsletter, and the lawful basis for its processing is your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) given when subscribing to the newsletter.

As regards the processing of information that does not come from you but has been collected automatically by my mailing system, it is based on my legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) consisting in analysing the behaviour of newsletter subscribers in order to optimise my e‑mail marketing activities.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking on the dedicated link available in each message sent as part of the newsletter or simply by contacting me.

Even if you have unsubscribed from the newsletter, your data will continue to be stored in the database for the purpose of the identification of the returning subscriber and the defence of claims, if any, related to sending you the newsletter, in particular for the purpose of demonstrating the fact that you have given your consent to receive the newsletter and the date when you withdrew it, which constitutes my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

You can modify your data provided for the purpose of receiving the newsletter at any time by clicking on the relevant link available in each message sent as part of the newsletter or simply by contacting me.

Comments / Opinions – details

When adding a comment, you must provide at least your user name that will be assigned to your comment (your user name may include personal data such as your first or last name) and your e-mail address. Providing this data is voluntary but necessary to add a comment.

The comment system is operated by a third-party provider – Disqus, Inc. The use of the comment system is subject to Disqus’ terms of use and privacy policy. Disqus is a separate, independent entity providing you with services by electronic means and processing your personal data in connection with your use of these services. You may use the Disqus system without creating a user account or as a registered user upon prior registration – this is at your discretion.

Comments added by you, along with your details made public according to the Disqus settings, will be visible on my website. You may modify or delete your comments at any time.

The lawful basis for the processing of your personal data as regards the comment system is the legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which in this case consists in the operation of the comment system.

Correspondence Handling – details

When making contact via e-mail, you quite naturally provide your personal data contained in the correspondence, in particular your e-mail address and your full name. Provision of your data is voluntary but necessary to make contact.

In this case, your data is processed for the purpose of contacting you, and the basis for the processing is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, i.e. my legitimate interest. The lawful basis for the processing after contact has ended is also my legitimate interest consisting in archiving our correspondence for the purpose of ensuring that I can prove certain facts in the future (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

The content of our correspondence may be subject to archiving and I am unable to unequivocally declare when it will be deleted. You have the right to request me to present you the history of our correspondence (if archived) as well as to request its erasure, unless the archiving is justified by my overriding interests such as defence against potential claims from you.

Tax and Accounting Obligations – details

If I issue an invoice to you, it forms part of my accounting records which will be kept for the period of time required by law. In this case, your personal data is processed for the purpose of the fulfilment of my tax and accounting obligations (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR in connection with the relevant legislation governing tax and accounting obligations).

Archiving – details

The description of particular purposes of the processing of your personal data contains also time limits for storing your personal data. These time limits are often related to the archiving of certain data for the purpose of ensuring that I am able to prove certain facts in the future, to reconstruct the course of my cooperation with a customer, the correspondence exchanged, or to defend, establish or exercise claims. This is based on my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

Audiences – details

Your e-mail address stored in the newsletter database or in the shop database may be sent to Facebook to create an audience for advertisements with the use of this e-mail address.

When using this function, your e-mail address is hashed before its sending to Facebook to create an audience.

Your e-mail address will be used in the matching process carried out by Facebook.

Facebook does not share your e-mail address with third parties or other advertisers and deletes your e-mail address immediately once the matching process is completed.

Facebook has implemented processes and procedures to ensure the confidentiality and security of e-mail addresses sent to it and the set of Facebook user IDs that form the audience created using e-mail addresses, including through the use of technical and physical safeguards.

The creation of a Facebook ads audience using your e-mail address constitutes my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. You can object to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose at any time, simply by writing to me at hello@plispliz.com

Social Media – details

If you follow my social media profiles or interact with the content I publish on social media, I quite naturally see your data that is publicly available on your social media profile. I process this data exclusively within the respective social networking site and solely for the purpose of handling the respective social network, which constitutes my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

Your use of social networking sites is subject to the regulations and privacy policies of the administrators of those sites, who provide you with services by electronic means entirely independently and autonomously.

I encourage you to consciously use social media and to take care of your privacy there, in particular by carefully choosing the content you publish and by managing your privacy settings.

Analysis and Statistics – details

I carry out analytical and statistical activities using the tools described in detail later on in this policy. Within these analytical tools, I only have access to Anonymous Information.

As mentioned earlier, in my opinion, Anonymous Information in itself does not have the nature of personal data because it does not allow me to identify you and I do not collate it with typical personal data I collect about you. Nevertheless, taking into account the strict case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the divided opinions among lawyers, as a precaution, in case Anonymous Information is attributed the nature of personal data, detailed explanations on the processing of this information are also included in this privacy policy.

The processing of Anonymous Information is based on my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. My legitimate interest consists in creating, viewing and analysing statistics related to user activity on my website in order to draw conclusions that will allow me to optimise my website in the future.

I am not able to provide you with access to Anonymous Information about you as I am not able to assign any of the Anonymous Information to any specific user. The third-party tools allow me to view only a set of statistics and information that is not assigned to any specific individuals.

However, you may object to the processing of Anonymous Information about you by disabling the third-party tool cookies in your cookie settings accessed by clicking on the appropriate link in the page footer.

Own Marketing – details

I carry out marketing activities using the third-party tools described in detail later on in this policy. Within these marketing tools, I only have access to Anonymous Information.

As mentioned earlier, in my opinion, Anonymous Information in itself does not have the nature of personal data because it does not allow me to identify you and I do not collate it with typical personal data I collect about you. Nevertheless, taking into account the strict case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the divided opinions among lawyers, as a precaution, in case Anonymous Information is attributed the nature of personal data, detailed explanations on the processing of this information are also included in this privacy policy.

The processing of Anonymous Information is based on my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. My legitimate interest consists in creating Custom Audiences based on Anonymous Information and targeting advertisements based on Anonymous Information, both of which fall within the marketing of my own products and services.

I am not able to provide you with access to Anonymous Information about you as I am not able to assign any of the Anonymous Information to any specific user. The third-party tools allow me to view only a set of statistics and information that is not assigned to any specific individuals.

However, you may object to the processing of Anonymous Information about you by disabling the third-party tool cookies in your cookie settings accessed by clicking on the appropriate link in the page footer.

Additional Tools – details

I embed videos from YouTube and audio recordings from SoundCloud, use social media plugins and Disqus comments, and test website usability with the Hotjar service. All of these tools process Anonymous Information.

As mentioned earlier, in my opinion, Anonymous Information in itself does not have the nature of personal data because it does not allow me to identify you and I do not collate it with typical personal data I collect about you. Nevertheless, taking into account the strict case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the divided opinions among lawyers, as a precaution, in case Anonymous Information is attributed the nature of personal data, detailed explanations on the processing of this information are also included in this privacy policy.

The processing of Anonymous Information is based on my legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. In this case, my legitimate interest consists in enabling you to use additional functions on my website.

I am not able to provide you with access to Anonymous Information about you as I am not able to assign any of the Anonymous Information to any specific user. The third-party tools allow me to view only a set of statistics and information that is not assigned to any specific individuals.

However, you may object to the processing of Anonymous Information about you by disabling the third-party tool cookies in your cookie settings accessed by clicking on the appropriate link in the page footer.

# 7: How long will your personal data be stored?

Data retention periods are indicated separately for each purpose of the processing. This information is included in the details pertaining to particular purposes of the processing. Most data is erased after the expiry of the limitation period for claims.

# 8: Who are the recipients of your personal data?

I would venture to say that modern business cannot do without services provided by third parties. I use such services, too. Some of these services involve the processing of your personal data. Third-party service providers who are involved in the processing of your personal data include, as follows:

  • hosting provider that stores your data on its server,
  • cloud computing service provider, as the cloud serves to store files that may contain your personal data,
  • provider of the mailing system that stores your data if you are a newsletter subscriber,
  • provider of the CRM system where your data is stored in order to improve the customer service process and for archiving purposes,
  • provider of the invoicing system that stores your data for invoicing purposes,
  • accounting firm that processes your invoice data,
  • technical maintenance service provider who gains access to your data if the maintenance work pertains to areas where personal data is located,
  • other subcontractors who have access to your data if the scope of their activities requires such access.

All these entities process your data under concluded data processing agreements and ensure an adequate level of personal data protection.

If necessary, your data may be shared with an attorney-at-law or lawyer who are bound by professional secrecy. This may result from the need for legal assistance that requires access to your personal data.

Your personal data may also be transferred to tax authorities to the extent necessary to fulfil my tax, settlement and accounting obligations. This refers in particular to all tax returns, reports, statements and other accounting documents containing your personal data.

Furthermore, if necessary, your personal data may be disclosed to entities, authorities or institutions entitled to access your data based on the provisions of law, such as the Police, national security services, courts, prosecution offices.

Your data is shared with courier companies to the extent necessary to deliver your order. These companies become independent controllers of your personal data.

Furthermore, with regard to Anonymous Information, it can be accessed by the providers of tools or plugins that collect Anonymous Information. The providers of such tools are independent controllers of the data collected by these tools and may share this data under the terms set out in their own regulations and privacy policies, which are beyond my control.

# 9: Is your data transferred to third countries or international organisations?

Yes, part of the processing of your personal data may involve the transfer of your personal data to third countries.

I transfer your personal data to third countries in connection with the use of tools storing personal data on servers located in third countries, in particular in the USA. The providers of these tools ensure an adequate level of personal data protection through the relevant compliance mechanisms stipulated by the GDPR, in particular through the use of standard contractual clauses.

Your personal data is stored on servers located in third countries as part of the following tools:

  • MailChimp e‑mail marketing system provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA – as regards your name, e‑mail address, IP address and statistical information related to how you respond to the messages sent.

Rocket Science Group LLC ensures an adequate level of personal data protection by applying compliance mechanisms stipulated by the GDPR, in particular through the use of standard contractual clauses.

At this point, I would also like to remind you that I use third-party tools that may collect Anonymous Information. This has already been mentioned herein several times, including in the answer to the preceding question. The providers of these tools often use servers located around the world, in particular in the United States of America (USA), to store the information collected.

# 10: Do I use profiling? Is your personal data used for automated decision-making?

I use tools that may take certain actions depending on the information collected by their tracking mechanisms, but I believe that these actions do not have any material impact on you as they do not differentiate your situation as a customer or affect the terms of the contract you may enter into, etc.

Using certain tools, I may for example target you with personalised advertising based on your previous activities on my website or suggest products that may be of interest to you. This is so-called behavioural advertising. I encourage you to learn more about behavioural advertising, particularly with regard to privacy issues. For detailed information, including the possibility to manage your behavioural advertising settings, click here.

I would like to emphasise that these tools give me only access to Anonymous Information. This information is stored on the servers of the particular tool providers, which servers are usually located around the world.

# 11: What are your rights in connection with the processing of your personal data?

The GDPR grants you the following potential rights in connection with the processing of your personal data:

  • right to access your data and to receive a copy of it,
  • right to rectification (amendment) of your data,
  • right to erasure of your data (if, in your opinion, there are no grounds for your data to be processed, you may request for it to be erased),
  • right to restriction of the processing of your data (you can request for the processing of your data to be restricted to only its storage or carrying out activities agreed with you, if in your opinion I have incorrect data or I am processing it unjustifiably),
  • right to object to the processing of your data (you have the right to object to the processing of your data based on my legitimate interest; you should indicate the particular situation which, in your opinion, justifies the cessation of the processing to which your objection pertains; I will cease to process your data for these purposes unless I demonstrate that the grounds for the processing of your data override your rights or that I need your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of claims),
  • right to data portability (you have the right to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data provided by you under a contract or your consent; you can have this data transmitted directly to another entity),
  • right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data where you have previously given such consent,
  • right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (should you consider that I process your data unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the President of the Personal Data Protection Office or other competent supervisory authority).

The rules related to the exercise of the rights listed above are described in detail in Articles 16 – 21 of the GDPR. I encourage you to familiarise yourself with these provisions. On my part, I think it necessary to explain to you that the rights indicated above are not absolute and you will not have them in relation to every activity related to the processing of your personal data.

 

However, one of the rights indicated above is always available to you – if you consider that the processing of your personal data has violated the personal data protection regulations, you can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority (the President of the Personal Data Protection Office).

You can also at any time request information on what data I hold about you and for what purposes I process it. To that end, simply write me at hello@plispliz.com However, I have made every effort to ensure that the information of interest to you is comprehensively set out in this privacy policy. You can also use the e-mail address provided above if you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data.

# 12: Do I use cookies and what are they exactly?

My website, like almost all other websites, uses cookies.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device (e.g. computer, tablet, smartphone) and can be read by my ICT system (own cookies) or by third-party ICT systems (third-party cookies). Cookies may serve to record and store certain information to which ICT systems can then gain access for specific purposes.

Some cookies used are erased at the end of a browser session, i.e. when the browser is closed (so-called session cookies). Other cookies are stored on your terminal device and allow your browser to be recognised the next time you visit my website (persistent cookies).

If you would like to learn more about cookies in general, read for example this material.

# 13: On what basis do I use cookies?

I use cookies on the basis of your consent, except where cookies are necessary for the correct provision of an electronic service to you.

Cookie files that are not necessary for the proper provision of electronic services remain blocked until you consent to the use of cookies. During your first visit to my website, I will display a message asking you for your consent, together with the option to manage cookies, i.e. decide which cookies you agree to and which you wish to block.

Please bear in mind that disabling or restricting cookies may prevent you from using some of the features available on my website and may cause difficulties in using my website, as well as many other websites that use cookies. For example, if you block the social media plugin cookies, then the social buttons, widgets and features implemented into my website may not be available to you.

# 14: Can you disable cookies?

Yes, you can manage your cookie settings within your web browser. You can block all or selected cookie files. You can also block cookies from specific websites. Furthermore, you can delete previously saved cookies and other website and plugin data at any time.

In addition, web browsers offer an incognito mode. You can use this mode if you do not want information on visited sites and downloaded files to be stored in your browsing and download histories. Cookies created in the incognito mode are deleted once you have exited all your incognito browsing windows.

There are also browser plugins that let you monitor cookies, such as for example Ghostery. Cookies may also be controlled by additional software, in particular antivirus packages, etc.

Furthermore, there are tools available on the Internet that allow you to control certain types of cookies, in particular to collectively manage your behavioural advertising settings.

Please bear in mind that disabling or restricting cookies may prevent you from using some of the features available on my website and may cause difficulties in using my website, as well as many other websites that use cookies. For example, if you block social media plugin cookies, then the social buttons, widgets and features implemented into my website may not be available to you.

# 15: For what purposes do I use my own cookies?

My own cookies are used to ensure the proper functioning of my website’s various mechanisms, e.g. to remember the contents of your shopping cart for a certain period of time after you have added your desired products to it, to correctly send forms visible on my website, to handle newsletter forms, etc.

Also, my own cookies store information about your cookie settings made via your cookie manager.

# 16: What kind of third-party cookies are used?

The following third-party cookies operate within my website:

  • Google Analytics,
  • Google Ads,
  • Hotjar,
  • Facebook Custom Audiences,
  • Facebook Connect and other social media plugins,
  • Disqus,

Details of particular third-party cookies are described below.

Google Analytics – details

I use the Google Analytics tool provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This is based on my legitimate interest consisting in generating statistics and analysing them in order to optimise my website.

To use Google Analytics, a special Google Analytics tracking code was implemented in the code of my website. This tracking code uses Google LLC cookies related to the Google Analytics service. You can block the Google Analytics tracking code at any time by installing the opt-out browser add-on provided by Google.

Google Analytics automatically collects information about your use of my website. The information so collected is usually transmitted to Google servers, which may be located around the world, and stored there.

Due to the enabled IP anonymisation, your IP address is shortened before transmission. Only in exceptional cases is your full IP address transferred to Google’s servers and shortened there.

My website uses plugins, buttons and other social media tools, hereinafter collectively referred to as “plugins”, provided by social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIN, Twitter.

Displaying a website containing a plugin of a particular social networking site, your browser sends the administrator of this social networking site information about your visit.

Plugins collect certain information about you, such as your user ID, the website you visited, the date and time and other browser information.

Social networking site administrators use some of this information to personalise your viewing of my website. For example, when you visit a page with a “Like” button, the social networking site administrator needs information about who you are to show you which of your friends also like my page.

Social networking site administrators may also use information collected by their plugins for their own purposes, such as improving their products, creating user profiles, analysing and optimising their activities, targeting ads. I have no real influence on how the information collected by the plugins is then used by respective social networking site administrators. Details in this regard can be found in the regulations and privacy policies of particular social networks.

You may also disable plugins on my website by using appropriate extensions for your browser, such as script blocking.

For example, information about clicks on the “Like” button may be available on your Facebook Timeline. Of course, if you share some content on your social media using the plugins embedded to my website, this sharing will quite naturally be visible on your profile.
