Who we are

Our website address is


Visitors who leave comments on the site provide data, such as what is shown in the comment form. Their IP address and browser user agent string are also collected to help detect spam. An anonymized line may be created from the visitor’s email address (also known as a hash) and sent to Gravatar for verification that it is being used. For more information about how Gravatar handles privacy, refer to their privacy policy at Once a comment has been approved, any associated profile picture will be visible publicly about the statement.


For the best results, users should refrain from uploading images to this website from including location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can extract this information to the website and should not be shared.


Commenting on our website is a great way to join the conversation. To make your experience more convenient, visitors may opt-in to save their name, email address, and website in cookies. This will save you from inputting these details again when leaving another comment. These cookies are set for one year to access them easily when necessary.

We also use temporary cookies when users visit the login page, which do not contain any personal data and are discarded upon closing the browser. When logging in, several cookies are used to store login information and screen display choices; these last for two days or one year, depending on the selection of the ‘Remember Me’ option, which allows user access for two weeks until logout removes all associated login cookies from their browser. An additional cookie is saved if an article is edited or published as it only contains post ID info with no personal data included expiring after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

This website hosts articles that contain embedded content from other websites, such as videos, images, and articles. This embedded content will behave similarly to what would be experienced should a visitor opt to access the source of said content directly.

It is important to note that these external sites may collect user data, store cookies on their device, and track their interactions with the embedded material – this includes tracking activity if a user has an account on the other website and is logged in while viewing it.

Who do we share your data with

If a password reset is requested, the IP address of the requester will be included in the reset email for security purposes. This ensures that the person requesting the password reset is authenticated and authorized to change their account information. Including an IP address in a password reset email provides an additional layer of accountability and helps maintain data integrity across all accounts.

How long we retain your data

If a comment is left, it will be retained indefinitely, along with its associated metadata. Any potential follow-up comments can be approved quickly and easily without entering a moderation queue. If users register on the website, their personal information will also be stored in their user profile. All registered users can view, edit or delete their personal information anytime; however, they cannot change their username. Administrators of the website can view and modify this data as well.

What rights do you have over your data?

If a user has an account on the website or has left comments, they can request to receive an exported file of their data held by the site. This data includes anything previously provided to the website. The user also has the option to ask for any personal data held about them to be erased, except in cases where it must be retained for legal and security purposes.

Where is your data sent?

Visitors of this site are encouraged to leave comments, which may be checked through an automated spam detection service. This ensures that all feedback is reviewed and potential spam messages are filtered out before publication on the website. This safeguards against malicious content and helps maintain a safe online environment.
