Privacy Policy

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.

   If you leave a comment on our site
you may opt-in to save 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.

this site, we will set a temporary cookie 
to determine if your browser accepts cookies.

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
and 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.
