What personal data do we collect, and why do we collect it?


When visitors leave comments on our 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 help detect spam. An anonymous string created from your email address (also called hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture is visible to the public within the context of your comment.


If you upload any pictures to the website, you should avoid uploading images that include location data (GPS EXIF). Webpage visitors can download and extract any location data from these types of images on the web.

If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address and web information using cookies. This is for your convenience so you do not have to fill in your data again when you leave another comment. These cookies will remain in effect for one year. If you have an account and you connect to this website, we will install a temporary cookie to determine whether or not your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is deleted when you close the browser. When you log in, we will also install several cookies to save your login information and your screen display options. Login cookies are valid for two days, and screen-option cookies remain in effect for one year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login information will be saved for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved to your browser.

Content embedded from other web sites

Items on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other web sites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website. These web sites can collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are connected to that website.


Who do we share your data with?

How long do 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 consecutive comments automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue. We also store the personal information that users who register on our website provide in their user profile, if applicable. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (minus the fact that they cannot change their user name). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights you have to your data?

If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data that we have about you, including any information that you have provided to us. You may also request that we remove any personal data that we have about you. This does not include any data that we are obliged to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where do we send your data?

Visitors’ comments may be reviewed by an automatic spam detection service.
