Who we are

This website address is: JakeBerger.org

The main website wrangler is a Dakota farm boy, appropriately named: Jake Berger

The gist

  • This is a unique website
  • Zero popups.
  • Zero sneaky ads disguised as posts.
  • When someone puts in their data, it’s because you resonate with our message and want to connect deeper and stronger.  And therefore we reciprocate by valuable communications, and possibly presenting offers.

All the technical mumbo-jumo…

What personal data is collected


When visitors leave comments on the site, the comment is collected, and possibly the Internet Protocol address and browser user agent string to protect your experience from harmful robots and time-leaching spammers.

Contact forms

When you enter your data in a contact form, it must be collected to transmit your intent.  I’m of the opinion that less is more, so we DON’T intend to keep information longer than necessary.


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 you can save time by avoiding filling in your details again and again when you leave more comments. Cookies last one year… which is a lot longer than the cookies my grandmother bakes when I visit her during the holidays.

When you log in, a cookie is used to store the session, including information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.  When you select “Remember Me”, the login session can persist for two weeks.  If you log out of your account, the login cookies are eaten by the browser.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is secured inside your browser. This cookie includes zero personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you 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.

We can’t say for sure what data they collect, or how they use it.  But if it’s embedded on this website, it’s for the greater good.


Who data is shared with

Only people within Jake Berger Facebook page, JakeBerger.org, and related properties can view the data.

How long data is retained

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so to recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

When you register on this website, the information in the user profile is secured. You can see, edit, or delete personal information at any time (but the username is fixed).  Website admins 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.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Your data is secured through Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure.  Passwords are randomly generated with a mix of 30 letters, numbers and special characters.  It would take trillions and trillions of years for a computer to hack into this website.
