What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
The website does record IP addresses and produces server logs – as all Web Servers do. This information is used for monitoring the volume of traffic the site receives and measuring the number of readers. IP addresses are also stored by the WordPress CMS software when you comment. IP addresses from comments are deleted after 7 days and will only be used in case of abuse or criminal activity.
When you use the contact form we will save your name, email and IP address and contents of your message.
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.
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.
We use WP-Statistics to collect usage stats for this site. IP Addresses are anonymized.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, or used the contact form, 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.
You may use software (i.e. Privacy Badger) to block cookies, Google Analytics or hide your referrer.
