Privacy Policy

Who we are:

Our website is

The following reasons motivate our collection of personal data:


When a visitor leaves a comment on our site, we collect their IP address and browser user agent string to help detect spam.

Gravatar can determine if you are using it by using an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash). Gravatar’s privacy policy can be found here: Once your comment has been approved, the public can view your profile picture.


Any location data that is embedded in images uploaded to the website can be downloaded and extracted by visitors. Avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS).


For your convenience, the site saves your name, email address, and website in cookies so that you don’t have to enter those details again every time you leave a comment.

If your browser accepts cookies, you will receive a temporary cookie when you log in. This cookie contains no personal information and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will save your login information and screen settings and set up several cookies as well. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. The login cookies will expire in two days, and the screen options cookies will expire in one year. When you log out, the login cookies are deleted.

The post ID of the article you just edited will be stored in an additional cookie. This cookie does not contain any personal information.

Content embedded on other websites

Content can be embedded in articles on this site (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content behaves exactly as if the visitor visited the other site.

A website that you have an account with may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content.


The following parties receive your data:

Data retention period

All comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely so that any follow-up comments can be recognized and approved automatically instead of being moderated.

Our website stores a user’s personal information in their user profile if they register (if any). Unlike changing their username, users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time. Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Data protection rights

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an export file of your personal data. Data we hold about you can also be erased upon request. Those items that are kept for administrative, legal, or security reasons do not fall under this category.
