Privacy Policy

Who we are in ourselves

Suggested text: The following is the address of our website:


When users leave comments on our site, we collect the information that is shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser user agent string. This information is collected in order to assist with spam detection.

If you make use of the Gravatar service, the Gravatar service may check to see if it already possesses an anonymized string derived from your email address, which is also known as a hash. The privacy policy for the Gravatar service can be accessed at this location: Once your comment has been reviewed and approved, your profile picture will be made available to the public within the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (also known as EXIF GPS), as this will prevent the images from being displayed correctly. Downloading and extracting any location data from the images hosted on the website is an option for visitors to the website.


If you make a comment on our website, you will be given the opportunity to consent to having cookies created containing your name, email address, and website. These are provided for your convenience so that you do not need to re-enter your information whenever you leave a new comment on the site. These cookies have a shelf life of one whole year.

If you visit the page where you log in to our site, we will place a temporary cookie on your browser in order to determine whether or not it supports cookies. When you close your browser, this cookie, which does not contain any personally identifiable information, is deleted.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save the information you entered during login as well as the screen display options you select. Cookies used for logging in remain valid for two days, while cookies used to customize the screen remain valid for an entire year. If you check the box labeled “Remember Me,” your login information will be stored for a further two weeks. If you exit your account without logging out first, the login cookies will be deleted.

When you make changes to an article or publish it, another cookie will be created and stored in your browser. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information; all it does is indicate the post ID of the article you have most recently edited. After a day, it will no longer be valid.

content from other websites that are embedded within this website

It’s possible that some of the articles on this website will have embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). When a visitor views content that has been embedded from another website, the experience is exactly the same as if they had visited the original website themselves.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. If you have an account and are logged in to that website, they may also track your interaction with the embedded content.

Who else we may share your information with

If you ask for your password to be reset, your IP address will be included in the email that is sent to you to reset your password.

How long we will keep your information on file

If you post a comment, both the comment itself and the metadata associated with it will be kept for an indefinite amount of time. This is done so that any follow-up comments can be recognized and approved automatically, rather than having to wait in a moderation queue for them to be reviewed.

If a user chooses to register on our website (if there are any users who choose to register), we will also store any personally identifying information that they provide in their user profile. Every user has the ability to view, make changes to, or remove their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Administrators of the website are able to view and edit that information as well.

What control do you have over your own information and data?

If you have an account on this website or have left comments, you have the ability to make a request to receive an exported file of the personal data that we hold about you. This file will include any data that you have provided to us as well as any data that we have obtained from other sources. You also have the option to request that we delete any personal information that we have stored about you. This does not include any data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Those are the only types of data that are not included.

Where your data is actually being sent.

It is possible that comments left by visitors will be screened through an automated spam detection service. [Suggested text]
