Privacy Policy



We gather the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam identification when a remark is left on the site.

To check if you are utilizing the Gravatar service, your email address may be hashed and then used to generate an anonymous string. Privacy information for the Gravatar service can be found at

Following moderation, your profile image will appear beside your comment.


It is recommended that you do not post any photographs to the website that have embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Location data embedded in uploaded photographs are freely available for download and analysis by site visitors.


Our site uses “cookies,” which store information like a visitor’s name, email address, and website if they make a comment. These are provided for your ease of use to prevent you from having to re-enter information on subsequent comments. You can keep these cookies for a whole year.

To find out if your browser is cookie-enabled, we need to store certain information when you visit our login page. This cookie does not save any personally identifiable information and is deleted when the browser is closed.

When you log in, we’ll create a number of “cookies” to remember things like your username and preferences for how you’d want the site to look. Cookies used for logging in expire after 24 hours, whereas those for customizing the user interface remain valid for an entire year. Your login information will be saved for two weeks if you check the “Remember Me” box. When you log out, the system deletes the login cookies.

A new cookie will be saved in your browser if you go back and make changes to an article or hit the “Publish” button. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and merely provides the ID of the post you just updated. It will stop working in 24 hours.

External website content embedded within another

Some of the articles on this site could have embedded media (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). All interactions with embedded material are the same as if the user actually visited the other website.

You should be aware that these sites may track your activity on the embedded material, including if you have an account and are logged in, as they may gather data about you, utilize cookies, and embed extra third-party tracking.

With whom do we share your data?

Your IP address will be included in the password reset email if you request it.

Timeframe for keeping your information

The comment you leave, along with its metadata, will be stored for the foreseeable future. This way, any subsequent comments will be instantly approved upon detection, eliminating the need for a moderation queue.

We also collect and keep any personally identifying information that users voluntarily supply during the registration process for our website. At any moment, users can access, revise, and remove the data that pertains to them (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators also have access to and can make changes to this data.

Who you can share your information with and why

If you have an account here or have posted a comment, you can ask to be provided with an electronic copy of all of your personal information that we have on file. You have the right to request that we delete all of your personal information. Except for information that must be kept for administrative, legal, or security purposes, we will not collect or store sensitive data.

Your information’s destination

It is possible that comments left by visitors will be screened for spam using an automated tool.
