Who we are

Suggested text: Our website address is: .

When visitors leave comments on the site, we gather the information they input into the comments form, along with their IP address and browser user agent string to bolster our spam detection efforts.

To enhance your privacy, we employ an anonymized string derived from your email address (known as a hash) which may be sent to the Gravatar service to ascertain if you use it. You can review the Gravatar service’s privacy policy here: Gravatar Privacy Policy. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible to the public alongside your comment.

Should you choose to upload images to the website, please refrain from including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can potentially extract and download any location data embedded within images on the website.

When you leave a comment on our site, you have the option to opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are designed for your convenience, eliminating the need to re-enter your details each time you leave a comment. They remain active for one year.

Upon visiting our login page, a temporary cookie is set to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded upon closing your browser.

Upon logging in, several cookies are established to store your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies persist for two days, while screen options cookies remain active for a year. Opting for “Remember Me” extends your login persistence to two weeks. Logging out of your account removes the login cookies.

Editing or publishing an article triggers the creation of an additional cookie in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data; it merely signifies the post ID of the article you recently edited and expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites:
Articles on our site may feature embedded content, such as videos, images, or articles, which function identically to content visited directly on the originating website.

These external websites may gather data about you, employ cookies, integrate additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with embedded content. This monitoring includes tracking your engagement with the embedded content if you possess an account and are logged into that particular website.

Who we share your data with:
In the event of a password reset request, your IP address will be included in the reset email for security verification purposes.

How long we retain your data:
Comments and their associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This enables us to automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if applicable), we retain the personal information provided in their user profile. All users possess the ability to view, modify, or delete their personal information at any time, with the exception of their username. Website administrators also have access to view and modify this information.

If you maintain an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to obtain an exported file containing the personal data we retain about you, including any information you have furnished to us. Additionally, you can request the deletion of any personal data we possess about you. However, this excludes any data we are obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where your data is sent:
Visitor comments undergo scrutiny via an automated spam detection service for the purpose of identifying and preventing spam.
