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 saving 
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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to
determine if 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 save 
your login information and your screen display choices. Login 
cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for 
a year. If you select "Remember Me", your 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 saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal 
data and simply 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 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
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be 
included in the reset email.

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 your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam 
detection service.
