What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Site visitors can download and extract location data from images on the site.
If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address, address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies 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 does not contain any personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.
When you log in, we also set several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days and screen options cookies last for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your connection will persist 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 in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you have just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
With whom we share your data
How long we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is how we can recognize and approve all follow-up comments automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
For users to register on our website (if applicable), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, modify or delete their personal data at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also 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 to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments can be checked by an automated spam detection service.
