Privacy Policy

Who we are Recommended text:

Comments Suggested text: When visitors leave comments on our site we collect the data from the comments form, the visitor's IP address, and the browser user agent string for spam detection.

An anonymized string (hash) created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service and the Gravatar service's privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of the comment.

Media Suggested text: If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies Suggested text: If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. This is so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies remain for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screenshot choices. Login cookies last for two days and screen options cookies last for a year. If you check the "Remember Me" option, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will also be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It will expire in one day.

Embedded content from other websites Recommended text: Articles on this site may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves 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 embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with Suggested text: If you submit a password reset request, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we keep your data Suggested text: If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize follow-up comments and approve them immediately rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we store personal information in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their information at any time (though they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your rights over your data Suggested text: If you have an account on this site or have left a comment, you can request to receive a file created from our personal data about you, a file containing the data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete your personal data. This does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
