What Personal Information Is Collected And Why?
When a visitor leaves a comment on the site, we collect the data shown in the comment form and also the visitor’s IP address and the browser user’s user agent string to help detect spam.
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.
If you write a comment on the website, you can provide the need to enter the name, email address of the website in the cookie. This information is intended to help you not need to enter the information repeatedly when writing another comment. This cookie will be kept for one year.
When you log in, we will set a few cookies to save your login information and display choices. The last login information is saved for two days, and the most recent display selection is saved for a year. If you select “Remember me”, the login information will be saved for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie information will be deleted.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal information and simply includes the ID of the article you edited. It automatically expires after 1 day.
Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if a visitor had visited another website.
Who do we share your data with
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize and accept any comments instead of keeping them in the moderation waiting area.
For users who register on our website (where applicable), 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 they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit that information.
If you have an account on this website or have left comments, you may request to receive an export file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obligated to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Comments from guests (non-members) can be checked through the automatic spam detection service.
