Privacy Policy

Welcome to our blog! This privacy policy explains how we at Urban Philosophers handle information about our visitors. We respect your privacy and are committed to keeping your information confidential. Please take a moment to read the following information:

Who we are

Urban Philosophers is a blog where philosophical reflections, technological insights, scientific discoveries, health-related discussions and cultural explorations converge to offer a multifaceted perspective on our ever-evolving world.

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, 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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF, GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

In some cases, we may provide contact forms for our visitors to get in touch with us. When you use a contact form on our blog, we may collect the following information:

  • Name: We collect your name to address you properly.
  • Email Address: We require your email address to respond to your inquiries.

We use this information solely for the purpose of responding to your requests or inquiries. We do not use the information submitted through contact forms for marketing purposes unless you explicitly consent to it.

Please be aware that while we take appropriate measures to protect the data you submit via contact forms, no method of transmission over the internet is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to us via contact forms.


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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


  • Technical Data: We automatically gather standard information typically provided by web browsers, including your IP address, browser type, and operating system.
  • Visitor Interactions: We collect data about your interactions with our blog, such as the number of “likes” and “ratings” on our posts.
  • Location Information: We may estimate your location based on your IP address to understand our audience better.
  • Cookies and Technologies: We use cookies and pixel tags to track visitors and improve your browsing experience. You can manage cookies by adjusting your browser settings.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be reviewed by an automated spam detection service.

How We Share Visitor Information

We do not share your information with third parties. Your privacy is important to us, and we take all necessary precautions to safeguard your data.

External Links and Privacy

While our blog may contain links to third-party websites, it’s important to note that this Privacy Notice specifically covers the information collected by Urban Philosophers. We want you to be aware that we do not have control over the privacy practices of external websites.

How long we retain your data

We retain data for approximately 30 days to maintain the integrity and security of our blog. After this period, we delete any unnecessary information.

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.

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.

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.
