Comments

Upon posting comments on our website, we gather details presented in the comment form along with your IP address and browser user agent string. This is essential in aiding us to detect spam.

Your email address is turned into an anonymized string (or a hash) which may be supplied to the Gravatar service for verification purposes if you’re utilising it. You can find the Gravatar service’s privacy policy at this link: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile image becomes public within the scope of your comment.

Media

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.

Cookies

Choosing to engage with our platform by leaving a comment, you have the option to save your name, email, and website information in cookies. This is purely for your ease, so that you don’t have to re-enter your personal information each time you wish to comment again. These cookies are designed to retain your details for a span of one year.

Should you navigate to our login page, we’ll establish a temporary cookie to verify if your browser is cookie-compatible. This particular cookie doesn’t hold any personal information and will be disposed of once you terminate your browser session.

Upon logging in, we’ll activate several cookies to preserve your login details and your screen display preferences. The lifespan of login cookies is two days, and screen preference cookies remain for a year. If you opt for the “Remember Me” feature, we’ll keep your login active for a fortnight. However, if you decide to log out, these login cookies will be eliminated.

In the event that you modify or publish an article on our platform, an extra cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie doesn’t contain any personal data but simply marks the post ID of the article you’ve recently edited. This cookie will expire after a single 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

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

How long we retain your data

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.

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

What rights 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 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 your data is sent

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