Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitorâ€™s IP address. We will also use 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) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt to save 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 will be discarded when you close the browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information, as well as screen display choices. Furthermore, 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. Finally, when you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos and images etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in the same way as if the visitor has perused the other website.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, it and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit or delete their personal information at any time. They are unable to change their username. Website administrators are also able to view and edit that information.
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 your personal data we hold. This includes any data you have provided to us. You can request that we erase any of this personal data. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
