Who we are
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help detect spam.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Website visitors can download and extract all location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our website, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to re-enter your details when leaving a comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies last for two days, and display options cookies last for one year. If you select “Remember me”, the login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and only indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may contain embedded content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal data 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). Site 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 to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete all personal data we have about you. This does not include data we are obliged to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitors’ comments can be checked through an automated spam detection service.
