Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It

Comments, Signup, and Contact Forms

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the contact and/or comments forms. We also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help in spam detection.

For comments, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your Gravatar profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Popup forms on this site use a temporary cookie with your IP address to offer the opportunity to subscribe to newsletters. These cookies expire at the end of the session.

If you leave a comment on this site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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

How Long We Retain Your Data

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

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

Rights You Have Over Your Data

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

GDPR personal data requests for this site may be made using this form.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Names and email addresses submitted via a signup form on this site may be sent to an email list service (MailChimp and/or MailerLite) for the purpose of adding the data to the subscription list.

We have an affiliate agreement with Rakuten Marketing, who may collect personal information based on your interaction with this site. The collection and use of this information is subject to their privacy policy located here. Similarly, we have affiliate agreements with other vendors who may collect personal information. Please check their respective privacy policies for how they collect and use your information.
