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.

 

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

 

Contact forms

Our contact form is provided by a third party plugin. We may keep data from our contact form purely to respond to questions, and to keep track of future interactions with the same clients.
 

Cookies

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a 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.

 

Analytics

We use tools like Google Analytics to automatically collect information about how you use the website. For example, your geographic location, how you found the website and the pages you view. These tools use your IP address and a cookie ID to process data into reports that we can use to improve our products, website and marketing.

If you log in to our website or have subscribed to receive our emails, we also send a user ID to these tools. This allows us to understand if you are using multiple devices and allows us to further improve how we deliver and market our products.

We collect personal information that is volunteered on our website. For example, when you submit a form with your name and email address. We ask for the minimum amount of information needed in order to service your request.

We use features in Google Analytics and Google AdWords, along with other advertising tools that allow us to target ads to you and report on demographics and interests. These tools use cookies and other information to show ads based on your past actions on our website.

If you would like to opt-out of customized Google Display Network ads and Google Analytics for Display Advertising you can use Google Ad Settings. You can opt-out of other customized ads using the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page. You can also use the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on so you are not tracked into Google Analytics.

 

Who we share your data with

 

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.

For users that 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 see and edit that information.

 

What rights 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 any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

 

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
