Personal Data: What is it, and why do we collect it
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. You automatically leave this information when you choose to write a comment. If you have previously done this, and wish to delete the information again, please visit our contact page and tell us that you want us to delete it.
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.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
When you visit the site, you will have cookies placed in your browses, as described above. You can delete them yourself by managing the cookies in your browser.
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.
We use Analytics to determine how many visitors we have, what pages they visit, and so on. This information is saved by Google, as we are using Google Analytics, and is accessed by us. This information is non-personal, but it will show basic stats about how long you visit our site, what system you use on your computer, and what exact pages you are visiting. To avoid this, simply install an ad or analytics blocker on your computer or phone.
We don’t share this Analytics information with anybody else than Google who provides it, it is only used as private statistics. And again, it is non-personal.
Google can see the data, as we use Google Analytics and Google AdSense. Aside from Google and WordPress, we are not currently sharing data with anybody.
We have some affiliate links up on the site. If you click on them, they might be collecting data too. The same applies if you share our content with one of the social media buttons. In that case, the social media of your choice will share the content on your profile.
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, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. The information that you choose to give yourself while signing up. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators are also able to see and edit that information, although we choose not to do it.
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.
