What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Any data you enter in contact forms is used solely to be able to contact you and to get statistics and analytics. We do NOT share this information with any third party unless required by law or for technical or legal reasons.

We reserve the right to use the data to contact you about promotional or technical reasons. You can opt out at any time.

Cookies

We use cookies in order to be able to provide you the proper website experience. The website cannot function properly without the use of cookies. The cookies do NOT carry any personal information by themselves and they are NOT shared with anyone.

We rely on a few third-party services (eg: Facebook, Google) that may include their own cookies. These cookies may track your online activity on our website and possibly correlate it with other websites that embed the same cookies. We do NOT have access to this correlation data but with some services we have access to analytics provided through these cookies about your actions of our own website.

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 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. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 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 exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
