What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the feedback form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s user agent chain to assist in spam detection.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you’re using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After the approval of your comment, the image of your profile is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the web you should avoid uploading images with location data (GPS EXIF) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from the images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve successive comments automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

Of the users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Web administrators can also view and edit that information

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data we have about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include any data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitors’ comments may be reviewed by an automatic spam detection service.
