Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website, accessible at, is committed to maintaining the privacy and protection of your personal data. This privacy policy outlines the types of information we collect from you and how we use it.


When you leave comments on our site, we collect the data displayed in the comments form, your IP address, and browser user agent string. These are used to detect and prevent spam.

We may also use a hashed version of your email address to check if it is currently being used by the Gravatar service. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available at Automattic’s Privacy page. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible alongside your comment.


To protect your privacy, be cautious about uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Other visitors to the site can download such images and extract their location data.


Our website uses cookies to enhance your experience:

  • If you leave a comment, you may opt to save your name, email, and website in cookies, avoiding the need to re-enter this information in the future. These cookies will last for one year.

  • A temporary cookie is used to check if your browser accepts cookies and contains no personal data, expiring when you close your browser.

  • We set cookies to save your login info and screen display choices when you log in. Login cookies last for two days, while screen option cookies last for a year. Selecting “Remember Me” extends this period to two weeks. Upon logging out, these cookies are removed.

  • Editing or publishing an article results in a cookie that records the post ID of the article you edited, which expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (videos, images, articles, etc.). Such content from other websites behaves identically as if you have visited the source site directly. These sites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content, including tracking interactions if you are logged in to their website.

Who we share your data with

Your data is not shared with any third parties.

How long we retain your data

We retain comment data indefinitely to facilitate follow-up comments. For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their profile. Users can always view, edit, or delete their personal information (except they cannot change their username). Administrators can also view and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on our site or have left comments, you may request an exported file of your personal data we hold, including any data you have provided. You can also request the erasure of any personal data we hold about you, which does not include any data we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

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