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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

Who we share your data with

Suggested text: If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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 (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 your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

reCAPTCHA v3 Compliance and User Information

In our commitment to maintaining the security and integrity of our website while respecting user privacy, we implement reCAPTCHA v3, a service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), to protect our site from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA v3 helps us distinguish between genuine users and automated software by analyzing the browsing behavior of website visitors.

reCAPTCHA v3 Badge Visibility

By default, reCAPTCHA v3 includes a badge on every page of our site, featuring links to Google’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. In alignment with Google’s requirements, we have opted to customize the visibility of the reCAPTCHA v3 badge to enhance user experience while ensuring compliance with the necessary guidelines.

Branding and Link Requirements

Although we may choose to hide the default reCAPTCHA badge, we ensure the inclusion of reCAPTCHA branding and links to Google’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy within the user flow of our website. This approach is in full compliance with Google’s guidelines, allowing us to maintain the integrity of our website’s security measures without compromising the overall user experience.

Where to Find reCAPTCHA Information

For users seeking more information about reCAPTCHA and its use on our website, including the relevant Google terms and policies, we provide visible links and acknowledgments at necessary points within the user interaction flow, particularly where reCAPTCHA verification is required.

Our Commitment to User Privacy

We value the privacy and security of our users. The use of reCAPTCHA v3 on our website is part of our broader efforts to ensure a safe, secure, and trustworthy environment for all our visitors. For more details on how we handle user data and privacy, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to these guidelines to ensure a secure and user-friendly online experience.
