Who we are

Sug­ge­sted text: Our web­si­te address is:


Sug­ge­sted text: 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.

An ano­ny­mi­zed string cre­a­ted from your email address (also cal­l­ed a hash) may be pro­vi­ded to the Gra­va­tar ser­vi­ce to see if you are using it. The Gra­va­tar ser­vi­ce pri­va­cy poli­cy is avai­la­ble here: After appro­val of your com­ment, your pro­fi­le pic­tu­re is visi­ble to the public in the con­text of your comment.


Sug­ge­sted text: 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.


Sug­ge­sted text: 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.

If you edit or publish an arti­cle, an addi­ti­o­nal coo­kie will be saved in your brow­ser. This coo­kie inclu­des 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

Sug­ge­sted text: 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.

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

Who we share your data with

Sug­ge­sted text: If you request a pass­word reset, your IP address will be inclu­ded in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

Sug­ge­sted text: 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.

What rights you have over your data

Sug­ge­sted text: 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 we send your data

Sug­ge­sted text: Visi­tor com­ments may be check­ed through an auto­ma­ted spam detec­ti­on service.
