What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors post a comment on this site, the data displayed in the comment form is collected, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string defining the browser, which helps to detect spam.

The Gravatar service may be provided with an anonymous string made from your email address (also called a hash) that can be used to determine if you are using the service. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to this site, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the site can download and view arbitrary location data from images on the site.

How long we keep your data

If you post a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. The data is retained for the purpose of automatically recognizing and approving all subsequent comments, rather than holding them in the moderation queue.

For users who register on this site (if they have the option), we also store the personal data they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What are your rights?

If you have an account on this site or have posted comments here, you can also request that we remove any personal information we hold about you. This option does not include data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where do we send your data to?

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