What personal data is collected and why
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 upload images, beware of 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.

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.
This website may be enabled to collect analytics information through Google Analytics. We have no control over what data Google collects or how Google uses that data (not currently enabled).
Who we share your data with
We do not directly share your data with anyone except as otherwise described in this document (comments for Anti-spam, Gravatar hash, Google Analytics etc).
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.
