What data is collected and why
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.
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.
Interactions with other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites (e.g. social networks) behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

How we handle your data
How we protect your data
This website uses SSL/HTTPS to encrypt our user communications with the servers, so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization. Furthermore, WordPress and the plugins used on this website (including security ones) are kept updated to reduce hacking risks.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
Where we send your data
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.
