What personal data and information we collect and why we collect it

— Comments

If you visit and leave comments on our site, we collect the information shown in the comments form. We also collect your IP address and browser user agent string. This helps us with 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Articles may be posted on this site that invite comments. If you choose to comment on an article, some of your information will be collected. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context 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

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save 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 does not include personal information 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 and information 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.

— With whom we share your data/information

We do not currently, and have no plans to ever, share your personal data and information with anyone. Period (However, we will comply with legitimate law enforcement requests.). If we are ever presented with a compelling reason to consider sharing your data and/or information, we will ask you for your permission first.

— 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 who 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 information we hold about you, including any information you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal information we hold about you. This does not include any data or information we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data and information

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

Your contact information

We will only use your contact information to correspond with you and – with the exception of legitimate law enforcement requests – will not share that information with anyone without your explicit consent. Period.
