Comments

When site visitors submit comments, we gather the data displayed in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam detection.
An anonymized string derived from your email address (also known as a hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service in order to determine whether you are using it. Gravatar’s privacy statement can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Your profile image is shown to the public in the context of your comment after it is approved.

Media

If you publish photographs to your website, avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website have the ability to download and extract any location data contained in the photographs on the site.

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.

Additionally, when you log in, we will create many cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Cookies associated with logins expire after two days, but cookies associated with screen options expire after a year. If you choose “Remember Me,” your login information will be retained for two weeks. When you sign out of your account, your login cookies are deleted..

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.

Content from other websites that has been embedded

This site’s articles may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded material from other websites functions identically to that of a visit to the other website.

These websites may gather information about you, utilize cookies, incorporate extra third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded material, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

With whom we share your data

If you request a password reset, the password reset email will include your IP address.

How long will we keep your data?

If you leave a comment, both the comment and its metadata are permanently stored. This enables us to instantly recognize and approve any subsequent comments, rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

We also retain the personal information that users supply in their user profile if they register on our website (if any). At any moment, users can see, modify, or delete their personal information (except they cannot change their username). Additionally, website administrators can view and edit this information.

What rights do you have in relation to your data?

You can request an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided to us, if you have an account on our site or have posted comments. Additionally, you can request that we delete any personal data we may have about you. This excludes any information we are required to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be screened for spam using an automatic service.
