Who

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
anonymised 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

The
contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email
address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service
(also owned by Automattic)
for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is
stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is
emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who
published the page on which the contact form resides). This email
will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email
address, website, and message.

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.

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.

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

Who
we share your data with

By
default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.

How
long we retain your data

If
you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained
indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up
comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For
users that register on our website (if any), 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 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.
