Privacy Policy

We gather information shown in the form of comments, as well as visitor IP addresses and browser user agent strings, to help prevent spam when visitors leave comments on the site.

The Gravatar service can generate an anonymous string (also known as a hash) from your email address to see if you’re using it. Here is the link to the Gravatar Service Privacy Policy:

After your comment has been accepted, your profile photograph is displayed in the context of your comment to the public.

Media:

If you upload photographs to the website, make sure they don’t have embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract any location data from the website’s photographs.

Cookies

You have the option of preserving your name, email address, and website when you leave a comment on our website. These are for your convenience so that you don’t have to re-enter your details every time you leave a new remark. The cookies in this batch will last a year.

If you visit our login page to test whether your browser accepts cookies, we will set a temporary cookie. This cookie stores no personal information and expires when your browser is closed.

When you log in, we’ll set up a number of cookies to preserve your login information and screen display preferences. Login and screen options cookies are valid for two days and a year, respectively. Your login information will be saved for two weeks if you select “Remember Me.” The login cookies will be deleted if you log out of your account.

The post ID of the article you just changed is stored in the cookie, which includes no personal information. It is only valid for one day.

Embedded content from other websites

This site’s articles may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites operates as if the visitor had gone directly to that website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed extra third-party tracking, and track your interactions with embedded material, including if you have an account and are logged in, tracking your interactions with embedded content.

Who we share your data with

Your IP address will be included in the password reset email if you request it.

How long do we keep your information?

This is so that any following comments, rather than being held in a moderation queue, will be recognized and approved automatically.

If users register on our website, we also keep the personal information they provide in their user profiles (if any). Any user can see, alter, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the website can also examine and update the data.

What rights do you have over your personal information?

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you can request an exported file containing the personal data we have about you, including any data you have contributed to us. You can also request that any personal information we hold about you be deleted.
