What personal data do we collect and why we collect it

Comments

We collect the data given 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 created from your email address (also known as a hash) to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy may be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy.

Your profile image is shown to the public in the context of your comment after it has been approved.

Media

Avoid submitting photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if you’re uploading images to the website. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the site.

Contact forms

Users who contact Us with feedback must provide their name and e-mail address. Any contact information provided during the feedback process will be used solely to acknowledge or reply to that feedback.

Cookies

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.

If you log in to this site with an account, we’ll set a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies.

We’ll set up many cookies when you log in to save your login information and screen display preferences. Cookies for login and screen options last for two days and a year, respectively. 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 additional cookie will be saved in your browser whenever you update or publish an article. This cookie contains no personal information and only shows the post ID of the article you just updated. It has a one-day expiration date.

Embedded content from other websites

 

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

These websites may gather information about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and track your interactions with that embedded content, including tracking your interactions with third-party tracking.

How long do we retain your data.

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

We also retain the personal information that users supply in their user profile if they register on our website (if any). At any moment, any user can see, modify, or remove their personal information (except they cannot change their username). The information can also be viewed and edited by website administrators.

What rights do we have over your data.

 

You can request an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided 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 about you. This excludes any information that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

An automatic spam detection service may be used to check visitor comments.
