Privacy Policy

Our privacy policy outlines how we collect, use, share, and protect personal information about our users, as well as your rights with respect to your personal information.

Personal Data


When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data provided in the comments form, as well as the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string to help us identify and prevent spam. If you use Gravatar, an anonymized string (also known as a hash) may be generated from your email address and provided to the Gravatar service. This allows Gravatar to check if you are using their service, and their privacy policy can be found here. After your comment is approved, your profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


When uploading images to our website, please ensure that any embedded location data (EXIF GPS) is removed. This is because visitors to the website may download and extract location data from the images.

Contact Forms

When you submit a contact form on our website, we will collect and store your first and last name, email address, phone number, and any other information you choose to provide. We will use this information solely for the purpose of contacting you and providing additional information as requested.


If leaving a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are designed for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your information again when you leave another comment. These cookies will remain in your browser for one year. If you have an account and log in to our site, we will establish a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded as soon as you close your browser.

Additionally, when you log in, we create several cookies to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies remain active for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. If you choose the "Remember Me" option, your login will remain active 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. This cookie contains no personal data and only indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Some articles on this site may contain embedded content, such as videos, images, or articles, that function similarly to content found on other websites. Please note that these embedded content sources may collect data about you, use cookies, including additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your activity with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We collect data through Google Analytics – and other website “cookies”.

How Long Your Data Is Retained 

When you leave a comment, we retain the comment and its associated metadata indefinitely. This is to enable us to automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue. For users who register on our website (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. Users have the ability to view, modify, or delete their personal information at any time, except for their username which cannot be changed. Website administrators also have access to view and edit this information. 

Your Data Rights

If you have an account or have left comments on our site, you have the right to request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, which includes any information you have provided to us. Additionally, you can request us to delete any of your personal data that we hold. However, please note that we may not be able to comply with your request if we are required by law to retain some of your personal data for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where We Send Your Data

To ensure a spam-free environment, all visitor comments will undergo an automated spam detection service before being published. We do not share or sell your data to anyone.
