When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown 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). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from the images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site, you can enable the saving of your name, email address and website in cookies. This is 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.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (for example: videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor had visited the other website.
Who do we share your data with?
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long do we keep your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of keeping them in a review queue for approval.
For users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
What rights do 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 delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data that we are obligated to maintain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where do we send your data?
Visitor comments can be checked by an automatic spam detection service.
