Who we are

This Website privacy policy is separate from the privacy policies of third parties that your activities on this Website may interact with.  Those third parties may include, but are not limited to, WordPress and/or its affiliates (the “Platform”), spam service providers, your internet service provider, your network access provider (e.g., virtual privacy network or VPN), gateway access providers, and other websites.  The Gravatar service (an affiliate of WordPress) privacy policy is available here:

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 (if enabled), and also the visitor’s IP address, URL (for pingbacks) 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 (an affiliate of WordPress) to see if you are using it. 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.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.  This website has no control over another website’s collection of personal data from you.

This Website does not share data with third parties, except in the case of Affiliates and other advertisements displayed on the Website when you click on their links.

How long we retain your data
When enabled, 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.

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