Information We Collect

  • Comments: When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data provided in the comments form, including the user’s name, email address, and comment text. We also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string for spam detection.
  • Gravatar: If you use Gravatar, an anonymized string (hash) may be created from your email address to check if you are using Gravatar. Your profile picture may be visible to the public alongside your comment.
  • Media: If you upload images to our website, please ensure that they do not contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Others may be able to download and extract location data from such images.
  • Cookies: When you leave a comment on our site, you can opt to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies enhance your user experience by saving your information for future comments, and they last for one year. If you log in to our website, a temporary cookie is set to check whether your browser accepts cookies, and it is discarded when you close your browser. Additionally, we use cookies to save login information, screen display choices, and other preferences for registered users.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Our articles may include embedded content such as videos, images, and articles from other websites. Embedded content behaves in the same way as if you had visited the source website. These external websites may collect data about you, use cookies, employ third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with their content.

Who We Share Your Data With

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

Data Retention

  • Comments: Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely to facilitate the automatic approval of follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
  • User Profiles: For registered users, we store personal information provided in user profiles. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information, with the exception of their usernames. Website administrators can also access and modify this information.

Your Rights

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you have the right to request an exported file of your personal data. You can also request the deletion of your personal data. However, this does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Automated Spam Detection

Visitor comments may be subject to automated spam detection services.

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we handle your data. Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to ensuring your information is protected and used responsibly. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
