Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:


When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (referred to as a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you’re using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you decide to upload images to our website, we recommend avoiding images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as visitors can download and extract this data from the images on the site.


Should you leave a comment on our site, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is purely for your convenience so that you don’t need to re-enter your details if you comment again. These cookies last for a year.

When you visit our login page, we’ll set a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you shut your browser.

Logging in will set several cookies to save your login information and your display preferences. Login cookies last for two days, while display option cookies last for a year. If you choose “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out, the login cookies will be removed.

Editing or publishing an article will save an additional cookie in your browser, indicating the post ID of the article you just worked on. This cookie expires after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Our articles may include embedded content, such as videos, images, and articles. This content from other websites behaves as if you visited those sites directly.

Such sites might collect your data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This might also track your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, the reset email will contain your IP address.

How long we retain your data

Any comments and their associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and approve subsequent comments automatically, avoiding moderation queues.

For registered users (if applicable), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username changes are not permitted). Site administrators also have the ability to view and edit this information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. You can also ask us to erase your personal data. However, this does not include any data we need to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments might be verified through an automated spam detection service.
