Collection of Information
We may collect personal information from you, such as your name, email address, and other contact information, when you use our website. We may also collect non-personal information, such as your IP address and browsing data. This information is used to improve the performance of our website and to better understand how our users interact with 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.
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 visit our login page, 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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.
Use of Information
Sharing of Information
We may share your information with third parties for the purpose of providing you with services or information that you have requested, or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We may also share your information with our third-party service providers, such as hosting and analytics providers, who assist us in operating and improving our website. These third parties are required to keep your information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which it was disclosed.
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.
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 your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We take reasonable precautions to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, no method of data storage or transmission can be completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information.
