Comments

We value your insights and discussions. When you leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. Additionally, we collect your IP address and browser user agent string to bolster spam detection and maintain the integrity of discussion.

To enhance your experience, we may utilize an anonymized string from your email address (known as a hash) to see if you are using the Gravatar service. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible in the context of your comment. Familiarize yourself with the Gravatar service privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

Media

If you upload images to the website, please be aware of the location data (EXIF GPS) included in the images. Visitors may extract this location data from images on the site. To protect your privacy, consider stripping such data before uploading.

Cookies

To enrich your experience, if you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save your name, email, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your details again for future comments. These cookies last one year.

When visiting our login page, a temporary cookie checks your browser’s cookie acceptance. It contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Upon logging in, we set several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, while screen option cookies last a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login persists for two weeks. Logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article sets an additional cookie in your browser, holding no personal data—just the post ID of the article you edited, expiring after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles). Such content from other websites behaves exactly as if you visited the source site. These sites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to those sites.

Data Sharing

Your IP address may be included in a password reset email if you request one.

Data Retention

We retain comment data indefinitely to recognize and approve any follow-up comments promptly, avoiding moderation queues. For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. Users can always view, edit, or delete their personal information (username cannot be changed). Website administrators can view and edit that information as well.

Your Rights Over Your Data

If you have an account or have left comments, you may request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you’ve provided. You can also request the erasure of any personal data we hold. This excludes any data we’re obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Sent Abroad

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
