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

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with any third parties unless it is necessary to provide you with our services or if we are required to do so by law.

In some cases, we may share your data with our trusted partners or service providers who assist us in operating our website, processing your information, or delivering our services to you. These third-party service providers have access to your personal data only to perform specific tasks on our behalf and are required to keep your information confidential and secure.

We may also share your data with our professional advisors, such as lawyers or auditors, if it is necessary to protect our legal rights or comply with legal obligations.

We will never sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes without your explicit consent.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding how we share your data, please contact us using the information provided in our “Contact Us” section.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that 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 can also request that we erase 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 we send your data

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