What personal information do we collect and why do we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent of their web browser to help detect spam.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be submitted to Gravatar to see if you use it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in terms of your comment.

The content

If you are uploading images to a website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and extract location data from website images.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on our website, you can opt out of having your name, email address and website saved in cookies. They are for your convenience so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies last for a year.

If you have an account and log in to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your web browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is discarded after you close your web browser.

When you log in, we will also set a few cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days and screen capability cookies last for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your application will last for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your web browser. This cookie does not include personal data and only determines the ID of the article you are editing. Expires after one day.

Nested content from other websites

Articles on this website may contain nested content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Nested content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if your visitor visited another website.

Those websites may collect information 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 keep your data

If you leave a comment, that comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and automatically approve any comments that follow, rather than keeping them in the review queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights you have in relation to your data

If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive a file of the exported personal data we hold about you including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are required to hold for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments can be checked through an automatic spam detection service.
