Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:


When you leave a comment on this site, we collect the information shown on the comments form. We also collect the IP address of the visitor, as well as the Browser User Agent string to assist in spam detection. You can provide Gravatar with an anonymised string (also known as a hash) of your email address to verify that you are using Gravatar. Gravatar’s Privacy Policy can be found here: Once your comment is approved, the public can see your profile picture in relation to your comment.


If you are uploading images to our website, you should not upload images with embedded location information (EXIF GPS). Visitors to your site can download and extract location information from images on your site.


If you leave us a comment, we may set up a temporary cookie on our login page. This cookie does not contain any personal data and will be removed when your browser is closed.

You may also choose to save your name, e-mail address and website details in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill out your details every time you leave us another comment.

These cookies will remain in your browser for one year if you visit our site regularly.

You can also set up a few cookies to store your login details and screen display options. The login details will stay in your browser for 2 days, and the screen options cookies will remain for 1 year. (If you select “Remember Me”, your login will remain for 2 weeks.)

Once you’ve logged out of our site, we will remove the login cookies from your account.

Embedded content from other websites

Embedded content, such as videos, images, or articles, may appear in articles on this site. Embedded content from third-party websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the third-party website.

Embedded content on third-party websites may collect information about you; use cookies; embed third-party tracking; and monitor your interactions with that embedded content.

If you have an account on a third-party website and are logged in, that website may track your interactions with the embedded content.

Who we share your data with

Your IP address will also appear in the reset email if you ask for a password reset.

How long we retain your data

If a comment is left, it and its metadata are stored forever. This is so that we can automatically recognise and approve follow-up comments instead of keeping them in moderation.

If you register on our site (if you do), we also store your personal information in your user profile. You can view, modify, or delete your personal information anytime (except you cannot change your username). Website administrators may also view and modify your personal information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account or have left comments on this page, you can ask us to provide you with an exported file containing the personal data we have about you, including the information you have given us. You may also ask us to remove any personal data that we have about you. Personal data does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where your data is sent

You can also check visitor comments using a spam detection service.
