Privacy Policy

We are what we are can be found at the following URL.


We collect the data shown in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid spam detection, from visitors who leave comments on the site.

To check if you are utilising the Gravatar service, your email address may be hashed and then used to generate an anonymous string. Here at, you can read about how the Gravatar service handles user data. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will appear alongside it for all to see.


When posting images to the website, keep in mind that doing so may expose your exact location if the image includes embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Any geotagged image hosted on the website can be downloaded and analysed by site visitors.


You can choose to have your name, email address, and website saved in cookies if you leave a comment on our site. These are provided for your ease of use so that you do not have to re-enter your information every time you leave a comment. The shelf life of these cookies is 12 months.

By visiting our login page, we can tell if your browser is set up to accept cookies by dropping a small file onto your hard drive temporarily. When you close your browser, this cookie along with any personal information it contained will be deleted.

After you log in, we’ll create a number of cookies to remember things like your preferred language and other personal preferences. The session cookie used for logging in expires after two days, while the cookie used to remember your display preferences remains in place for an entire year. Your “Remember Me” login information will be saved for two weeks. When a user logs out, the login cookies are deleted.

An extra cookie will be saved in your browser if you go back and edit or publish the article. This cookie doesn’t contain any personally identifiable information; it just shows which article you’re currently editing by referencing its unique post ID. After one day, its validity is nullified.

Content from other websites that has been embedded

Some of the articles on this site may have embedded media (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). When a user interacts with an embedded piece of content from another website, it is the same as if they actually visited that other website.

If you have an account on one of these sites and are logged in, the site may be able to track your activity, including how often you visit and what you look at, as well as any data you enter into forms on the site.

Whom we disclose your information to

Your IP address will be included in the password reset email if you request one.

Duration of time your information is kept

We keep comments and the data associated with them indefinitely after they are posted. This way, any subsequent comments won’t need to wait in a moderation queue; we’ll be able to approve them as soon as they’re posted.

For the small percentage of visitors to our site who elect to create an account, we do keep the personal details they reveal in their profile. Individuals have unrestricted access to their own profile data and may view, change, or delete this data at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators have access to that data as well.

The control you have over your information

If you have an account here or have posted a comment, you can request to receive a file containing the information we have on you, including any data you may have given us. Also, you have the option of having us delete all of your personal information. However, this does not apply to records which we are required by law or which are vital to maintain for reasons of national security or other applicable laws.

Your information’s destination
