Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 21, 2024 by Ethan Green


At No Sleepless Nights, I’m committed to protecting your privacy and using your personal data responsibly, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), UK GDPR, and other relevant data protection laws.

This privacy policy provides detailed information about the types of personal data I collect, how it’s used, stored, and protected, as well as outlining your rights concerning your personal data.


As you might already know from reading articles here, my name is Ethan Green. I am the owner of this website and writer of all the articles. I am the person to communicate with regarding this website.

You can contact me using the form on the contact page.

You can also email me directly at

And you can write to me at this address:

13 Springfield Road, Brighton, East Sussex. United Kingdom. BN1 6DB

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

To improve my website and user experience, I collect a limited amount of personal data, such as your IP address for website analytics and operational purposes. Additionally, third-party embedded content on my site, such as videos, may use cookies to enhance your user experience.

I process this information based on your consent and my legitimate interest in improving my website and understanding my audience better.


If you choose to leave a comment after reading an article, I collect the information you enter in the comment form, along with your IP address and browser details, to prevent spam.

I ask you to include your name and email address, but this is optional. You can make up a name if you prefer, or just leave those boxes blank.

I will not contact you directly using your email unless you asked me to in your comment. And I will not add you to any marketing email list.

Contact forms

If you use the contact form to write to me, I need your email address to be able to reply to you. I also ask for your name so I can address you personally in the reply.

I will keep your name and email address until one month after our last contact, in case I need to get in touch regarding your query. After that time, I will delete it.

Your name and email will not be added to any kind of marketing list. So it will be used only for the duration of our communication.


For information about the use of cookies on this website, please refer to the cookie policy. This policy explains what cookies are, how I use them, the types of cookies I use, and your choices regarding cookies.

Google Analytics tracking cookies

I use Google Analytics to understand how visitors use my website, which helps me make improvements.

Examples include: how long on average people spend reading an article, and which article they read next when they finish one.

If you prefer, you can use a browser add-on to switch this tracking off. You can find the google opt-out browser add-on here.

And to find out more, you can read the Google privacy policy here.

Embedded content from other websites

Some of my articles have embedded content, such as my videos hosted on YouTube. Embedded content from other websites works just like visiting those sites directly.

Those 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.

Who I share your data with

I never sell, trade, or share your personal information with other people or companies.

How long I retain your data

Comments and their details are kept indefinitely to automatically recognize and approve any follow-ups without moderation.

Data that is collected about you by the Google tracking package is kept for two years.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me.

You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for legal or security purposes.

Where I send your data

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service called Akismet.

I store any personal data I keep on my private dedicated server, which is managed by Kinsta hosting and based in the United States.
