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, to contact you if we need a clarification and to enable you to discuss our posts.

An anonymised string created from your email address, also called a hash, may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. In the future, we may use this to display your profile picture near your comment (after approval of your comment).

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.

Logging in

When you attempt to log in without having an account on our website (i.e. if you are a hacker or computer criminal), we collect the IP number, username, e-mail address, and time and date of your attempt. We do this to prevent further hacking attempts.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts on this website 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

It is not possible to exhaustively list every website we may embed content from. However, in the past, we have embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo.
