Visitor Comments

Any data provided in comment forms by visitors to our site, such as the comment itself, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser details, are collected to aid in spam detection.

Your email address may be used to generate an anonymized string (known as a hash) which may be given to the Gravatar service to see if you’re utilizing it. You can find the Gravatar service’s privacy policy here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be public in the context of your comment.

Media Uploads

If you choose to upload images to our website, please refrain from uploading images that include embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the site can download and extract such location data from any images present on our site.

Cookie Usage

Should you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website details in cookies for your convenience, so you won’t need to re-enter them for future comments. These cookies will remain for one year.

Visiting our login page will lead to a temporary cookie being set to ascertain if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie, containing no personal information, is discarded when you close your browser.

Upon login, several cookies will be set to store your login details and screen display preferences. Login cookies are kept for two days, and screen options cookies for a year. Selecting “Remember Me” will keep your login active for two weeks. Logging out will remove these login cookies.

Editing or publishing an article results in an additional cookie saved in your browser, which includes no personal data and simply denotes the post ID of the article you edited. This cookie expires after one day.

Embedded Content

Our site may contain embedded content from other websites (videos, images, articles, etc.). This content behaves exactly as it would if you visited the source website directly.

These websites may collect data, use cookies, include additional third-party tracking, and monitor interaction with the embedded content, especially if you’re logged in to the source site.

Data Sharing

Should you request a password reset, the reset email will contain your IP address.

Data Retention

Comments and their related metadata are kept indefinitely to allow us to recognize and automatically approve follow-up comments, instead of requiring manual moderation.

For users registering on our site, we store any personal information provided in their user profiles. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of username changes). Website administrators can also access and modify this information.
