Who we are

Our website address is:


When you leave comments on our site, we collect the information you provide in the comments form, your IP address, and browser user agent string to help identify and prevent spam.

If you use the Gravatar service, an anonymized string created from your email address may be sent to Gravatar to check if you have a profile. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public alongside your comment.


If you upload images to the website, avoid including location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract location data from images on the site.


When you leave a comment, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details when you leave another comment, and they last for one year.

On the login page, a temporary cookie is set to check if your browser accepts cookies; this cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, several cookies are set to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, screen options cookies last for a year, and selecting “Remember Me” keeps you logged in for two weeks. If you log out, login cookies are removed.

Editing or publishing an article results in an additional cookie saved in your browser, indicating the post ID of the edited article; it expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles) behaving like content on the visited website.

These embedded contents may collect data, use cookies, embed third-party tracking, and monitor interaction, including tracking if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do we share your data with

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

How long we retain your data

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely to recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically.

For registered users, personal information provided in user profiles is stored. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except for the username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold, including any provided data. You can also request erasure of your personal data, excluding data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
