Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how [] (“we,” “us,” or “our”) collects, uses, and safeguards the personal data you provide to us when you visit our website:


When you leave comments on our Site, we collect the data you provide in the comments form, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string. This information is collected to assist in spam detection. Additionally, if you have a Gravatar account, an anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: [Gravatar Privacy Policy Link]. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public alongside your comment.


If you choose to upload images to our Site, we advise against including embedded location data (EXIF GPS) in those images. Visitors to the Site can download and extract any location data from the images on the Site.


If you leave a comment on our Site, you have the option to opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are provided for your convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter your details when leaving subsequent comments. These cookies will remain stored for one year.

When you visit our login page, a temporary cookie is set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Upon logging in, we will set up several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are retained for two days, while screen options cookies are stored for one year. If you choose the “Remember Me” option, your login will persist for two weeks. Logging out of your account will result in the removal of login cookies.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not contain personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you recently edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on our Site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles) from other websites. Embedded content from external sources functions in the same way as if you visited the external website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This includes tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who We Share Your Data With

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our Site (if any), we store the personal information provided in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, except for their username. Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your Data Rights

If you have an account on our Site or have left comments, you have the right to request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you. This includes any data you have provided to us. Additionally, you can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. Please note that this does not include any data we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. We encourage you to review this page periodically for any updates. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting the updated Privacy Policy on the Site.
