Who we are

Our website address is


We collect the data displayed in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to aid spam detection.

The Gravatar service can be given an anonymized string formed from your email address (also known as a hash) to see if you are using it. The privacy policy for the Gravatar service can be found here: Your profile picture is available to the public in the background of your comment after it has been approved.


Avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if you’re uploading images to the website. Any location data from photographs on the website can be downloaded and extracted by website visitors.


If you leave a comment on our website, you can choose whether or not to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to enter your information again when you leave another comment. These cookies would be good for a year.

When you visit our login page, we will place a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and is deleted when you close your browser.

We will also set up multiple cookies when you log in to save your login details and screen view preferences. Login cookies are only valid for two days, while screen options cookies are valid for a year. If you want “Remember Me,” your username will be saved for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are deleted.

An additional cookie will be saved in your browser if you edit or post an article. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and merely shows the post ID of the article you just edited. It has a one-day expiration date.

Embedded content from other websites

This website’s articles can contain embedded material (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded material from other websites acts just as if the user had visited the other website.

These websites collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and track your interactions with embedded content, including tracking your interactions with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal information with any third parties, except as required by law or as necessary to provide our services to you.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a message, both the comment and the metadata associated with it are saved forever. This is so that any subsequent feedback will be recognized and approved immediately rather than being held in a moderation queue.

We also store the personal information that users have in their user profiles if they register on our website (if any). At any time, any user can view, edit, or remove their personal information (except they cannot change their username). The details can also be viewed and edited by website administrators.

What rights you have over your data

You may request an exported file of the personal data we keep about you, including any data you have given to us if you have an account on this site or have left comments. You may also ask us to delete any personal information we have about you. This excludes any information that we are required to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where we send your data

An automated spam detection service can be used to verify visitor comments.
