What personal data we collect and why
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data marked in the comments form, and the visitor’s IP address and browser data to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email (also called a hash) may be sent to Gravatar to see if you use the service. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile photo is publicly visible along with your comment.

If you upload images to the site, avoid uploading images that contain indoor location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download these images from the website and extract their location data.

Contact forms
When leaving a comment on the site, you may choose to save your name, email and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies last for a year.

If you have an account and access this site, a cookie will be temporarily created to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain any personal data and will be discarded when you close your browser.

When you access your account on the website, we also create several cookies to save your account data and your screen display choices. Login cookies are suspended for two days and screen options cookies for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your access will be interrupted for two weeks. If you log out of your account, your login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include any personal data and simply indicates the post ID for the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Media embedded on other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content such as videos, images, articles, etc. Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor were visiting the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party exploration, and exchange your interaction with that embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the password reset email.

How long do we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. We do this so that we can automatically reflect and approve any subsequent comments rather than holding them for moderation.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information we provide in your user profile. All users can see, edit or delete their personal information at any time (you can only change your username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What are your rights 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 remove any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that you are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where do we send your data
Visitor comments may be marked by an automatic spam detection service.
