What personal data we collect and why we collect it



When visitors leave comments on our site we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.  We use Akismet to keep our site spam free.  You can read their privacy policy here.

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.



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.


Contact forms

This site keeps contact form submissions for customer service purposes only.  We use Mailchimp as a third party service for subscribed readers.  You can read their privacy policy here.



Cookies are files with small amounts of data used to collect and track information in order to improve and analyze our service.  There are session cookies (used to operate our service) and preference cookies (to remember your preferences and various settings).

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address in cookies. This is optional.  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.


Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from verified sources. Embedded content from other websites behave 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

This site uses Jetpack analytics to analyze and track website traffic.  You can read their privacy policy here.


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 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

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.
