What personal information we collect and why we collect it

When visitors leave comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form as well as the IP address of the visitor and the string of the browser user agent in order to support spam detection.

An anonymized character string (also known as a hash) created from your email address can be made available to the Gravatar service to determine whether you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy can be found here: Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves just as if the visitor had visited the other website.

Who we share your data with
How long do we keep your data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be kept indefinitely. This allows us to automatically recognize and approve follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

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 (unless they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What are your rights to your data?

If you have an account on this website or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal information that we hold about you, including any information that you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete all personal data that we hold about you. This does not include any data that we need to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where do we send your data to

Visitor comments can be checked using an automated spam detection service.
