Sug­gested text: When vis­i­tors leave com­ments on the site we collect the data shown in the com­ments form, and also the visitor’s IP address 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 to see if you are using it. The Gra­vatar service privacy policy is avail­able here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Sug­gested text: 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.


Sug­gested text: 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.

If you visit our login page, 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 includes no per­sonal data and simply indi­cates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Sug­gested text: 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

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

How long we retain your data

Sug­gested text: 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

Sug­gested text: 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

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