What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data, shown in the comment form, as well as the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string, to help detect spam.

Anonymized string, created from your email address (also called a hash), can be provided to the Gravatar service, to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy statement is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile photo is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with built-in location data included (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and retrieve any location data from website images.

Who do we share your data with?

How long we store your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are saved indefinitely. That is right, so that we can recognize and approve all subsequent comments automatically, instead of keeping them in the moderation queue.

For users, who register on our website (if any), we also store personal information, which they provide, in their profile. All users can see, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you may request to receive an exported file of personal data, which we hold for you, including all data, which you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete all personal data, which we hold for you. This does not include data, which we are obliged to keep administrative, legal or protective purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitors' comments can be checked through an automated spam detection service.
