When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as 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 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-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

Articles on our site may feature embedded content (for example, videos, images, articles, etc.). Such content from other websites behaves in exactly the same manner as if you have directly visited the originating website.

These sites might collect data about you, utilize cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This includes tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged into those websites.

Data Sharing

In instances where you request a password reset, we include your IP address in the reset email to enhance security and prevent misuse.

Data Retention

Comments left on our site, along with their metadata, are retained indefinitely. This enables us to identify and approve subsequent comments automatically, bypassing the need for them to be queued for moderation.

For users who register on our site, we store the personal information they provide in their profile. Registered users can at any time view, edit, or delete their personal information (username changes are not permissible). Our site administrators also have the ability to view and modify this information.

Your Data Rights

If you have an account with us, or have left comments, you’re entitled to request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided. Furthermore, you may request the deletion of any personal data we have about you. This excludes any data we are mandated to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Processing and Spam Detection

Comments from visitors may be scrutinized using an automated spam detection service to maintain the integrity of our site.
