Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. Additionally, we collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also referred to as a hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. You can read the Gravatar service privacy policy here. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, it’s advisable to avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) since visitors can download and extract this data from images on the site.


If you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don’t need to fill in your details again when commenting next time. These cookies will last for one year.

Visiting our login page will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie has no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Logging in sets several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, while screen options cookies last a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will last two weeks. Logging out removes the login cookies.

If you edit or publish an article, a cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data, just the post ID of the article you edited. It expires after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may have embedded content (like videos, images, articles, etc.). This content from other sites behaves as if you visited the other site directly.

Such sites might collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and watch your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to that site.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, the reset email will include your IP address.

How long we retain your data

If you comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically instead of placing them in a moderation queue.

For users registering on our website, we store the personal info they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (they can’t, however, change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we have about you, including any data you provided to us. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you, except data we need to keep for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be verified via an automated spam detection service.
