When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comment forms, as well as the visitor's IP address and the string of user agents in the browser to help us detect spam.
If you upload images to your website, you should avoid uploading images that included embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and extract all the location data from the images on the site.
If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don't have to fill them out again when you leave another comment. These cookies will be valid for one year.
If you go to our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is removed when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set some cookies to save your login information and on-screen display options. Authentication cookies are kept for two days, and those for on-screen display options are kept for one year. If you select "Remember me", your login cookies will be kept for two weeks. If you disutentify yourself from your account, the authentication cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include any personal data and simply indicates the ID of the item you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content on other websites behaves exactly the same as if visitors viewed another website.
With whom we share your data
If you ask for a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is how we can automatically recognize and approve all the following comments instead of holding them in a queue for moderation.
For users (if any) who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (but they can't change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.
What rights do you have over your data
If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request that you receive an export file with the personal data we hold about you, including all the data you have provided to us. You can also ask us to delete all personal data we hold about you. This does not include all data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
