What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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: https://automattic.com/privacy. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Contact forms

When visitors leave messages in the contact forms, we collect the data shown in the contact form for visitor service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes. The data is kept indefinitely for our visitor service records.

Cookies

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.

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, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Our hosting provider monitors traffic and maintains logs including IP addresses for performance and security reasons.

In addition, we use Google Analytics as a traffic monitoring service to provide us with insights into how visitors use our site. The Google Analytics privacy policy is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Who we share your data with

We use MailerLite as a email service provider to deliver subscriptions requested by visitors. The MailerLite privacy policy is available here: https://www.mailerlite.com/legal/privacy-policy.

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.

What rights you have over your data

We will only use your data in ways you might reasonably expect and only collect the minimum amount to reduce any privacy impact. If you choose to however, 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 to unsubscribe from mailing lists, and that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This request for erasure 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.
