Who we are

Suggested text: Our website address is:


We’ll store the data from the comments form and visitor IP address and browser user agent string to assist spam detection after visitors leave comments on the site.

You may be given a unique string derived from your email address (also known as a hash) to the Gravatar service in order to determine whether you are using it. The privacy policy for the Gravatar service is accessible here: Your profile picture becomes visible to others while commenting after approval of your remark.


As a result, if you include location data in an image on your website, it may be used to identify you. Avoid uploading photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included if you upload images to the website. Visitors to the website can download and remove any location data from any photographs on the site.


If you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your information again when leaving another comment. The cookies will remain valid for a year.

When you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal information and is destroyed when you close your browser.

When you log in, we’ll also create a few cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies are valid for two days, while screen options cookies last a year. If you pick “Remember Me” as your option, your login will be retained for two weeks. The login cookies will be erased if you log out of your account.

If you modify or publish an article, a new cookie will be added to your browser. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and simply identifies the article’s ID before it was edited. It is good for 1 day only.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may contain embedded content (e.g., videos, photos, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites works similarly to if the visitor has visited the other website.

A variety of data may be collected by websites, which can include gathering information about you, using cookies, embedding additional third-party tracking, and monitoring your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interactions with the embedded material whether or not you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the email.

How long we retain your data

If you post a comment, the comment and its metadata will be saved indefinitely. This is so we may automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of putting them in a moderation queue.

We collect information regarding visitors’ IP addresses and DOB so that we may analyze web traffic and improve our website for the better. We also save all of the personal information users submit in their user profiles (if any). Users can see, change, or remove their personal information at any time (except their username). Website administrators have access to this data as well.

What rights you have over your data

Suggested wording: If you have an account with us and/or previously left comments on our site, you can request to receive a personalized file containing all of your personal data, including any data you’ve supplied to us. You may also ask us to delete any information we have about you. This does not include any data that is needed for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where we send your data

The spam filter automatically checks visitor comments through an automated spam detection service.
