What personal data we collect and why we collect it Comments

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 browser’s user agent string to facilitate 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’s privacy policy is available here: Upon approval of your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public as part of your comment.


When uploading images to the Site, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and extract arbitrary location data from images on the Website.

Contact forms Cookies

When you leave a comment on our website, you can choose to have your name, email address and website stored in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill out your information again when you leave another comment. These cookies are valid for one year.

When you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal information and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we also set up multiple cookies to store your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, and screen option cookies last one year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will last for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are removed.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only shows the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with this embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into this website.

Analytics With whom we share your data How long we keep your data

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our site (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 they cannot 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 website or have left comments, you may request an exported file of the personal information we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Comments from visitors may be screened by an automated spam detection service.
