When you leave comments on our site, we collect the details provided in the comments form, along with your IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection.

An anonymised string, formed from your email address (referred to as a hash), might be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you use it. You can view the Gravatar service Privacy Policy here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes publicly visible within the context of your comment.


Should you choose to upload images to our website, we advise against embedding images that contain location data (EXIF GPS). Other visitors can download and extract this location data from any images on our site.


When you leave a comment, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website via cookies. This is for your ease, ensuring you don’t need to re-enter details with future comments. These cookies remain for a year.

Upon visiting our login page, a temporary cookie is set to ascertain your browser’s compatibility with cookies. This cookie holds no personal data and is discarded once you close your browser.

Logging in sets up various cookies that save your login details and screen display preferences. Login cookies last two days, while screen options cookies last a year. Opting for “Remember Me” extends your login to two weeks, and logging out deletes these cookies.

If you alter or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. It contains no personal data but notes the post ID of your recently edited article, expiring after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Our site may feature embedded content (like videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. Interacting with this content is identical to visiting the source website directly.

Such websites might gather data about you, deploy cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content. This is especially true if you have an account and are logged into the website in question.

Who we share your data with

If you initiate a password reset, the reset email will contain your IP address.

How long we retain your data

Comments and their related metadata are stored indefinitely. This allows us to identify and automatically approve subsequent comments instead of placing them in a review queue.

For those who register on our site, we store the personal information given in their profile. All users can view, amend, or erase their personal information at any time, though they cannot modify their username. Our website administrators also have access to this information and can make changes.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account with us, or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we possess, including data you’ve provided. You can also ask us to erase any personal data we have about you. However, this doesn’t encompass data we’re mandated to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent
