What personal data we collect and why we collect it
As most websites do, we automatically log certain information about every visit to the site. This includes your IP address and information relating to your requests from our servers, for example date and time, referrer, user agent, request type and details of request size. This information is used to help us manage the website and where necessary to investigate potential misuse or breaches in regulations.
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 contact us through the contact form, you will provide us with your email address. That address will not be used for advertisement.
If you leave a comment on our 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.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
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. There may also be ad content on this site.
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.
