Privacy Policy

Who we are



When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with their IP address and browser user agent string for spam detection purposes.

If you use Gravatar, a hashed anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service. Your profile picture will become visible to the public along with your comment once it’s approved.


Visitors to our website may download and extract location data from images on our site.


If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience, allowing you to skip re-entering your details when leaving another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

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 were visiting the other website directly.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with their embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Your privacy is important to us. We will never sell or rent your data to third parties. Any data collected will only be used for the purposes specified at the time of collection.

For password resets, your IP address may be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and automatically approve any follow-up comments without the need for moderation.

For registered users, the personal information provided in your user profile is stored. You can access, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (excluding your username). Website administrators also have access to and can edit this information.

Your rights over your data

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file containing the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided to us. You can also request the erasure of your personal data, except for data we are obliged to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

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