When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Website visitors can download and extract all location data from website images.
If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These cookies are there for your convenience so that you don't have to fill in your information again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites
Suggested text: Articles on this site may include embedded content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
With whom do we share your data?
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long do we keep your data
If you leave a comment, that comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is done so that we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments, rather than putting them on hold in a moderation queue.
For users who 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 view and edit this information.
What rights do 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 data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where is your data sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
