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, plus the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This help us with spam detection.
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.
When visitors enter information in our contact form on the site we collect the data shown in the form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to help spam detection. We then forward that information to our in house mail systems, where our staff will have access to that information to enable them to provide responses to your questions. This information is used for customer service purposes; we do not use this information for marketing purposes.
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 exactly same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use a third party provider (Google Analytics) to track analytics anonymously. Google Analytics is a service that transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and web page usage. Google Analytics also stores information on your local computer in the form of Cookies.
In addition, our web hosting company (Safedomain.net) stores analytical data including your IP address on their servers in the form of log files, typically for 30 days. This is common across the Internet and the information is provided to us in an anonymous format.
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 we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
