Who am I:

What personal data do I collect and why it is collected:


When you leave comments on the site, the site collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection and preventing abuse.

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. Providing a profile picture is optional, if enabled, and completely voluntary.


If you upload images to this website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Other visitors to the website can download and extract any provided location data from images on this website.


Cookies are for functional purposes only, they are not used for marketing or cross-site tracking, they cannot be disabled without affecting site functions.

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. You are not required to use this feature.

If you visit the login page, the site 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, the site 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.

Who I share your data with

If you leave public comments, register and provide public information on a public profile page, this information is by definition public and is shared with other visitors.

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email, irrespective of an existing account being present.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services for this site, such as determining what content is most interesting. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to provide more content.

Use of Google Analytics

I utilize Google Analytics to gather data on website interactions. This helps in understanding your preferences and improving content accordingly. Data collected includes but is not limited to pages visited, time spent on pages, and clicked links.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. The comment and metadata may also be retained for legal purposes.

If you register on this website, the site will also store any personal information you provide in your user profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this 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 that you have provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data the site holds 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.

Your data is saved in the servers that operate this site. These servers may change location without notice to ensure the site is functioning.
