Who We Are
Personal Data We Collect and Why
Comments When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information helps us detect and prevent spam.
Media If you upload images to the website, please ensure that they do not contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract location data from such images.
Cookies If you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience and will last for one year, eliminating the need to re-enter your details when leaving another comment.
When you log in, 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.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and expires after one day.
Embedded Content From Other Websites Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles) from other websites. Embedded content behaves in the same way as if you visited the other website directly.
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 allows us to recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically, rather than holding them for moderation.
For registered users, we store personal information provided in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, except for their username. Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
Your Rights Over Your Data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you, except for 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.
