What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it?
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comment forms, but also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help us detect spam.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that have embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Website visitors can download and extract all location data from images on the website.
Contact forms, Cookies
If you leave a comment on our website, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill them in again when you leave another comment. These cookies will be valid for one year.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include personal data and simply indicates the 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 exactly as if visitors viewed another website.
Who do we share your data with?
How long do we keep your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This way we can automatically recognize and approve all subsequent comments instead of holding them in a queue for moderation.
For users (if any) who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (but cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.
What rights do you have over your data?
If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also ask us to delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include all data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where do we send your data?
Visitor comments may be checked by an automated spam detection service.
