What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When you leave a comment on the site, we collect the data in the comment form, your IP address, and your browser user-agent string to help detect spam.

We may create an anonymized string from your email address (also called a hash) and provide it to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using the service. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture will be visible publicly beside your comment.

Media

You should avoid uploading images to the website that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Anyone can download and extract location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Any information you submit through our contact forms will be retained on the servers of our hosting and email service provider, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”). AWS’ privacy policy is available at https://aws.amazon.com/privacy/. By submitting your email address, you’re giving us permission to add your address to our mailing list and send you our newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time. Our newsletter service provider is Mailchimp. Mailchimp’s privacy policy is available at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

Cookies

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

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. The cookie will contain no personal data and will be discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. The cookie will include no personal data and will simply indicate the post ID of the article you edited or published. It will expire after one day.

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 same way it would if you visited those websites directly.

Such websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including monitoring that occurs if you are logged into the website from which the content originates.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect and analyze information about your use of this website. The information helps us improve the website and our promotional efforts. Google Analytics may collect information such as how often you visit this website, which pages you request, and the addresses of other websites you have visited.

Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this website and does not collect your name or other personally identifying information. However, we may combine information collected through Google Analytics with other information about you that we use for promotional purposes, such as an email address.

Google Analytics stores a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this website. Only Google can use the cookie. Google’s ability to use and share information collected through Google Analytics is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

You can prevent Google Analytics from identifying you when you visit this website by disabling cookies in your web browser. See your web browser’s help pages for further instructions.

Whom we share your data with

We may share your personal data with third parties for the following purposes:

  • To comply with a court order;
  • To protect against legal liability;
  • To protect the personal safety of our users or the public; and
  • To protect and defend our property and legal rights.

If we sell our business or our assets, we may transfer personal data we have collected about you to new owners. We will provide notice before your personal data is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

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.

What 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.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We take reasonable steps to secure all data transmitted to and from this site and stored at our hosting provider. Any data you submit to this site is encrypted using the Transport Layer Security protocol. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet and no form of electronic storage is absolutely secure. Although we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
