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 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.
Information you submit through forms on this site is sent to us by email. Your information may also be shared with the Mailchimp service.
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 or post, 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 the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Google Analytics and advertising
This site uses Google Analytics. Some information, such as the pages you visit, your IP address (which implies location), and other browsing-related data, is sent to Google. Google may set and read cookies in your browser.

We use Google Analytics data to analyze how people use the site and to make improvements. Google provides a tool for opting out of Google Analytics in case you don’t want to participate.
We may also use Google advertising cookies on your computer. They allow us to link data from Google Analytics and Google Ads. This allows us to show more specific advertising to groups of people who have taken certain actions on our website (or groups of people who are similar). This is called remarketing. These ads may be displayed in search results or on other sites across the internet.
You can opt-out of seeing personalized Google ads using your Google account settings. (There may also be similar settings for ads on mobile apps.) You can also control some of the information Google uses to show you ads.
There are other tools you can use to opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting. For example, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance Consumer Choice website for more information and one such tool. (European web visitors may find the Your Online Choices website helpful.)
Conversion and third-party tracking
We also use tracking methods to help us understand how people interact with pages after they arrive from specific sites or ads. For example, we can collect data about what people do on our sites after they click an advertisement or promoted post on a social media platform. It can also help us tailor content for people who have visited our site before.

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.
