What personal information we collect for what purpose
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser text to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and extract any location information from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies remain for one year.
If you visit our home page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will set several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days and screen options cookies last for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your login will continue for two weeks. If you log out of your account, login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Content embedded from other sites
Articles on this site may contain embedded content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor visited the other website.
With whom we share your data
How long do we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This way, we can automatically recognize and approve your follow-up comments instead of keeping them in the moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (if any), 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 (except changing their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.
What are your rights over your data?
If you have an account or have comments on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including the 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 we send your data
Visitor comments can be checked through an automatic spam detection service.
