Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and disclose personal data through our website located at (“the Site”). By using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

When you visit the Site, we may collect certain information about you, such as your IP address, browser user agent string, and data entered into comment forms, for the purpose of spam detection. If you leave a comment on the Site, we may also collect an anonymized string created from your email address (i.e., a hash) to determine if you have a Gravatar profile picture associated with your email address. Your profile picture, if approved, will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to the Site, please refrain from uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS), as visitors can download and extract this data from images on the Site.

We may use cookies to save your name, email address, and website in order to provide a more convenient experience by pre-filling comment forms for you. These cookies will last for one year. If you log in to the Site, we will set up cookies to save your login information and your screen display preferences. These cookies will last for two days for login cookies and one year for screen option cookies. 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, which simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited, and expires after one day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on the Site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.) that behave in the same way as if the visitor had 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.

Data Sharing

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

Data Retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely, 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.

Data Subject Rights

If you have an account on the Site or have left comments, you have the right to request 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.

Automated Spam Detection Service

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