Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We only collect email addresses, website addresses if you provide them, and names if you provide them when you leave a comment or sign up for our newsletter. This is only for the sake of providing required data for our comment form and/or sending you our newsletter. We do not sell your contact information or knowingly send you any spam.


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.


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.


We do not use analytics at this time.

Who we share your data with

As mentioned above, some data may go to the Gravatar service to help us fight “spam” comments. We do not knowingly share data with anyone else.

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. In the event of a law enforcement action that requires access to our data, we will make a last-ditch effort to protect your privacy by requiring a valid warrant but reserve the right to share user data with law enforcement agencies that remember to cross their T’s and dot their I’s in this regard.

Your contact information

Additional information

How we protect your data

We recommend that you do not share any more information than you feel comfortable sharing with us or anyone else. However, we routinely work with our web hosts to ensure that data is secure.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event that we become aware of a data breach, we have backups in place and can quickly work with our web host to resolve the breach and ensure that the malicious actors do not have access to sensitive data and resources (that we paid for!) for long.

What third parties we receive data from

No one at this time.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We only moderate comments for spam. Comments are automatically held for review before going live. We will never see your face and do not care about anything other than your ability to leave a comment that does not contain spam, threats, harassment, vulgarity, or links to questionable websites. We do, however, reserve the right to report anything that is suspected to be illegal to the authorities.
