Privacy Policy

Firstly, let me stress that is a hobby project of mine and makes no money. In fact it has only cost me money. I run this service because I find it fun to do and because I find it useful myself that it exists.

Having said that, I find your and my privacy very important. You must understand that any code posted is publicly available and findable simply by changing the numbers in the generated urls. Apart from that I use Google Analytics to collect visitor data, which, as we know, is a relatively poor choice for analytics. I am looking at moving away from them, but this will take some time.

As you may also know, privacy policy requirements have changed lately. Bookmarkify has existed since 2011 and back then there was no GDPR, etc. I will do my best to satisfy the requirements of such policies, but again, it is just a side-project.

Effective from: January 19, 2019

I, Achilleas Buisman ("I", "us", "we", or "our") built this website ( I will refer to this as 'Service', 'Bookmarkify' or 'I'.

Data collection

Aside from the code and urls you enter yourself to create bookmarklets I collect or create the following data:

Data protection officer/Data controller

GDPR requires me to have a data protection officer. Seeing as it is just me here, I am that officer. Contact me at the address all the way at the end here or through the help-widget (requires turning off ad-blocking for User Voice).

Contact me about any privacy issues please!

Data processor

Guess what, it is still just me and I also fullfil the role of data processor.

Luckily for the size of this document there are some other processors as well. These are the external companies that I use to handle some services for me. See the Service Providers section for an explanation. If I have forgotten one, please let me know.

Data requests

You have the right to see what personally identifiable data I have on you. Please ask me to provide it when you want it. I have done my best to have no personally identifiable data to begin with, but you never know. All I ask is that you help me out with unearthing this data and cutting me some slack with regards to time requirements seeing as bookmarkify is not a commercial project.

Lastly, I am not a lawyer, so I generated a policy on and copy-pasted some parts of that policy that I found relevant and did not feel like rewording:
