What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After appro­val of your com­ment, your pro­fi­le pic­tu­re is visi­ble to the public in the con­text of your com­ment.

Media

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.

Cookies

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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

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.

How long we retain your data

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

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

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