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.

Contact forms

If you fill out a contact form on the website, the information will be used for customer service purposes only, for instance, to respond to your requests. Information left on contact forms on this website will not be sold to third party service providers. 

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 visit our login page, 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.

Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics to monitor website trends. Users who visit this website and have Javascript enabled are tracked through Google Analytics. This information is tracked anonymously and shared with us to evaluate the performance of our site and make decisions on its content and improve features for users. 

 

Google Analytics collects a variety of information from users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP address) that is used to connect your computer to the Internet (which it does not report to us), your Internet Service Provider (ISP), browser type, type of operating system, the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL), clickstream to, through, and from our website. Analytics also tracks site user behavior including date and time of visit, length of time spent on particular pages, which links you click on while on our site, and similar site visit information. Google Analytics data is shared with Google. 

For more information on Google Analytics, including instructions on how to opt-out of having your information shared through Google Analytics, please visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. For more information on Google’s privacy policy, please visit: https://google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy

Who we share your data with

We do not sell or trade site users’ personally identifying information to third parties. Certain general data, such as trends obtained from Google Analytics, may be shared with trusted partners or investors at management’s discretion. On occasion, we may share your data with third-party service providers to help us operate the site. These limited purposes would require your express permission, such as receiving an email newsletter.
 

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.

How we protect your data

We take reasonable security measures to protect data collection, storage, and processing. We protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information stored on our site.
