Privacy Policy

Collection of Personal Data & its Purpose

We gather the data provided in the comments form as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid spam detection.

The Gravatar service may be given an anonymized string produced from your email address (also known as a hash) to determine if you are using it. The privacy policy for the Gravatar service may be found here: Your profile image is displayed to the public in the context of your remark after it has been approved.

Avoid submitting pictures with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if you’re uploading photographs to the website. Any location data from photos on the website can be downloaded and extracted by website visitors.

Contact Forms


You can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies if you leave a comment on our site. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to enter your information again when you post another comment. This batch of cookies will last for a year.

We will set a temporary cookie whenever you visit our login page to see if your browser accepts cookies. These cookies include no personal information and are deleted when your browser is closed.

We will set up several cookies when you log in to preserve your login information and screen display preferences. Cookies for login and screen choices last for two days to one year. Your login will be saved for two weeks if you select “Remember Me.” The login cookies will be deleted if you log out of your account.

An extra cookie will be kept in your browser whenever you modify or publish an article. This cookie contains no personal information and just shows the post ID of the article you just modified. It has a one-day expiration date.

Embedded content from other websites

This site’s articles may include embedded material (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded material from other websites operates just as if the visitor had really visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, utilize cookies, embed extra third-party monitoring, and track your interactions with embedded content, including tracking your interactions with the embedded content if you have an account and are signed in to that website.

How long do we keep your information?

If you post a comment, both the comment and the information associated with it are saved permanently. This is so that any subsequent comments will be recognized and approved automatically rather than being held in a moderation queue.

We also keep the personal information that users submit in their user profiles if they register on our website (if any). At any moment, any user can see, amend, or remove their personal information (except they cannot change their username). The information may also be seen and edited by website administrators.

What rights do you have over your personal information?

You can request an exported file of the personal data we possess on you, including any data you have supplied to us, if you have an account on our site or have posted comments. You can also ask us to delete any personal information we have on you. This excludes any information that we are required to preserve for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where is your information sent? An automatic spam detection service may be used to check visitor’s comments.
