When visitors leave comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s user agent string, to facilitate spam detection.

An anonymous 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 privacy policy for the Gravatar service can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After sharing your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


When uploading images to the Site, you should avoid uploading images that contain location data (GPS EXIF). Site visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the Site.

If you have an account and log in to this website, we set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal information and is deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set a number of cookies to store your login information and screen display options.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with this embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into this website.

With whom we share your information

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we keep your information

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This allows us to automatically detect and approve consecutive comments rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

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

What rights you have to your data

If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you may request an export file of the personal information we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete the personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we need to keep for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

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