Who we are
When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information is collected to help us detect and prevent spam.
If you upload images to our website, please avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to our website can download and extract location data from such images.
When you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are designed for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details when leaving future comments. These cookies will remain valid for one year.
Our login page uses a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies. This temporary cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
Upon logging in, we will create several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies will last for two days, while screen options cookies will be valid for a year. If you select “Remember Me” during login, your login status will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will remove these login cookies.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and merely indicates the post ID of the article you edited. It will expire 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.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email for security verification purposes.
How long we retain your data
When you leave a comment, both the comment and its associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This enables us to automatically recognize and approve follow-up comments without delay, rather than holding them for manual moderation.
For users who register on our website (if any), we store the personal information provided in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, except for their username, which cannot be changed. Our website administrators also have access to and can edit this information.
Where your data is sent
We employ an automated spam detection service to review visitor comments and ensure they comply with our guidelines.
