What personal data do we collect and why we collect it
Comments and contact forms
When visitors leave comments or submit forms on the site, we collect the data shown in the form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help detect spam.
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 whether 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 some 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 information will persist for two weeks. If you sign out of your account, the
sign-in cookie will be deleted.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded
content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor has visited the other website.
monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the
content embedded if you have an account and are logged in to that site.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be 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 who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit that 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 ask us to delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
