What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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. If you enter information in the comments section (for example your website address) that information may appear as a link that can be accessed from this site.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included since visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

The name and e-mail fields are mandatory to fill out if you want your comment to be seen and approved for publication on the site. The website is not mandatory; if it is included in the form and your comment is approved and published, it may create a link to your website.

Contact information is used for verification to ensure that the comment author and material submitted as a comment are suitable for publication. This information is retained in the website database until deleted by the moderator or permanently if the comment is approved and published on the website.

See “How long we retain your data” section below.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


This site uses Google Analytics to track how visitors to the site use the site, what type of device they use to do so, and what country they do so from.
