Privacy policy

Who are we?

Our website address is:


When you leave a comment on our site, the data written in the comment form, as well as your IP address and your browser’s user agent, are collected to assist us in detecting unwanted comments.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy clauses can be found here: After approving your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.


If you upload images to the site, we advise you not to upload images containing EXIF data with GPS coordinates. Visitors to your site can download and extract location data from these images.


If you leave a comment on our site, you may be asked to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you don’t have to re-enter this information if you leave another comment later. These cookies expire after one year.

If you visit our login page, a temporary cookie will be created to determine if your browser accepts cookies. It doesn’t contain any personal data and will be automatically deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. A login cookie lasts two days, and a screen options cookie lasts a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login cookie will last two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be removed.

By editing or publishing a post, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data, only the ID of the post you just edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded content 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 exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Use and transmission of your personal data

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, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and automatically approve any follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if applicable), 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
