Who we are 

Our website address is: 

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. 

Contact forms 


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 visit our login page, 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 tracking your interaction  with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. 


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.
