Who we are

Our web­si­te add­ress is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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 ano­ny­mi­sed 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.

Contact forms


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 tra­cing your inte­rac­tion with the embed­ded con­tent if you have an account and are log­ged in to that web­si­te.


How long we retain your data

If you lea­ve a com­ment, the com­ment and its meta­da­ta are retai­ned inde­fi­ni­tely. This is so we can recog­ni­se 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 we send your data

Visi­tor com­ments may be chec­ked through an auto­ma­ted spam detec­tion ser­vice.
