Who are we

Hello! My name is Gizem Çetin and this is my personal website. This website is published in three languages: Turkish, English and Esperanto.

On this personal website accessible at, one of our main priorities is the privacy of our visitors. This Privacy Policy page includes the types of information collected and recorded by Gizem Çetin Personal Web Site and how we use them.

What is our purpose for collecting your personal information


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.

Contact Forms

Contact Form 7 plugin is used on the website. Except for the information you enter in the contact form (your name, e-mail address, subject, message), no other information is collected through the form. The information received is not shared with third parties in any way.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use the Google Analytics service of Google, Inc. (“Google”) on every page on our site to understand how visitors use our site.

The use of Google Analytics on our site means that Google collects, records and analyzes the browsing history of visitors to our site based on the cookies we set. We receive analysis results from Google and use them to understand how users visit our site. No data about users collected, recorded or analyzed by Google Analytics contains personally identifying information. This data is also managed by Google in accordance with its own privacy policy.

Users can disable Google Analytics in the browser add-on settings, preventing Google Analytics from collecting their data. Google Analytics can be disabled by downloading the “Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on” from the Google opt-out browser add-on download page, installing the add-on, and configuring the browser add-on settings. Disabling Google Analytics causes it to be disabled on all sites, not just ours. However, you can re-enable Google Analytics at any time by configuring the browser add-on settings.
