Who we are Our website address is:

Comments When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help identify and prevent spam.

An anonymized string generated from your email address (also known as a hash) may be shared with the Gravatar service to check if you have a Gravatar profile. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy can be found here: After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media If you upload images to the website, please be cautious not to include images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can potentially download and extract location data from images on the site.

Cookies When you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your information when leaving another comment. These cookies will remain active for one year.

If you visit our login page, a temporary cookie will be set to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Upon logging in, we will set several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are active for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will remove the login cookies.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is saved in your browser, containing no personal data. It merely indicates the post ID of the article you recently edited, and it expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites Articles on this site may contain embedded content, such as videos, images, articles, etc. Embedded content from other websites behaves the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website directly.

These external websites may gather data, employ cookies, include additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with the embedded content, including tracking your interactions if 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 reset email.

How long we retain your data If you leave a comment, both the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This enables us to recognize and automatically approve follow-up comments, eliminating the need for moderation.

For users who register on our website (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 for their username). Website administrators can also access and modify this information.

What rights you have over your data If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also request the deletion of any personal data we possess about you. However, this does not encompass data that we are obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent Visitor comments may be subject to automated spam detection to maintain the quality of our content.
