Who we are

Sug­gested text: Our web­site address is:


Sug­gested text: When visi­tors leave comm­ents on the site we coll­ect the data shown in the comm­ents form, and also the visitor’s IP address and brow­ser user agent string to help spam detection.

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.


Sug­gested text: 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.


Sug­gested text: If you leave a com­ment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and web­site in coo­kies. 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.

If you visit our login page, we will set a tem­po­rary coo­kie to deter­mine if your brow­ser accepts coo­kies. This coo­kie con­ta­ins no per­so­nal data and is dis­carded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up seve­ral coo­kies to save your login infor­ma­tion and your screen dis­play choices. Login coo­kies last for two days, and screen opti­ons coo­kies last for a year. If you sel­ect “Remem­ber Me”, your login will per­sist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login coo­kies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an addi­tio­nal coo­kie will be saved in your brow­ser. This coo­kie includes no per­so­nal data and sim­ply indi­ca­tes the post ID of the article you just edi­ted. It expi­res after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Sug­gested text: Artic­les on this site may include embedded con­tent (e.g. videos, images, artic­les, etc.). Embedded con­tent from other web­sites beha­ves 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

Sug­gested text: If you request a pass­word reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

Sug­gested text: 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

Sug­gested text: 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.

Where we send your data

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