What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data described in the feedback form, as well as the visitor IP address and user browser proxy string to help detect spam.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment is approved, your profile photo will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Modes

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Site visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site, you can enable your name, email address, and website to be saved in cookies. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will configure a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts these cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is disposed of when you close your browser.

When you log in, we also configure several cookies to save your login information and display options. Cookies for login information remain for two days, while cookies display options remain for a year. Your login will continue for two weeks when you choose “Remember me”, and if you are signed out of your account, your login cookies will be deleted.

An additional cookie will be saved in your browser if you edit or publish an article. This file does not contain any personal data. It simply indicates the ID of the article you edited. It will expire in a day.

Content included from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor visited the other site.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, include additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with this embedded content, including tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that site.

Analytics
With whom we share your data
How long do we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is so that we can automatically recognize and approve any successive comments instead of keeping them in the review queue for approval.

For users who have registered on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Webmasters can also see and edit this information.

What rights do you have on your data?

If you have an account on this site, or leave comments, you can request a file to be exported from the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request deletion of any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where to send your data

Visitors’ feedback can be verified through the automatic spam detection service.
