Privacy Policy

What personal data is collected and how is it collected??

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, the data in the comments form, as well as the IP address and browser user agent, is saved to help with spam detection.

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

Multimedia

When uploading images to the site, you should avoid loading images with embedded geolocation data (EXIF GPS), as other visitors can download and extract geolocation data from images from the site.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so you do not have to re-populate your data when leaving another comment.

If you have an account and log in to this site, a temporary cookie will be set up to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal information and will be deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, some cookies will be configured to save your session information and your screen display choices. If you select “Remember me,” your session will persist for two weeks. At the end of the session, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other sites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (for example, videos, pictures, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other sites behaves as if the user were visiting those sites.

This site may collect data about you, use cookies, incorporate third party tracking, and monitor your interactions with it.

With whom are your data shared?

Your data is not shared with other entities for marketing purposes.

How long are your data retained?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are saved indefinitely. This happens so that the website can automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments, rather than putting them in a moderation queue.

What rights do you have about your data?

If you have an account with this site, or have left feedback, you can request to receive an export file with the personal data stored about you, including any personal data you have indicated. You can also request that saved data be deleted. This does not include any personal data that is obligatory to maintain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where is your data sent to?

The comments of visitors can be verified through an automatic spam detection service.
