Who we are

Our website address:

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.

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



Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

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.

Where we send your data

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