What personal data do you collect, and why?
Comments: When visitors leave comments on the site, the data shown in the comments form is stored, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to help spam detection.
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.
Cookies: Cookies are small data files stored on a user’s (i.e your) computer. According to the Information Commissioner’s Office, cookies: ‘can do a number of things, eg. remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website.’
If you leave a comment on this 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 30 days.
In addition, this website uses software from WordPress-approved developers which may also generate cookies to improve the usability of the site.
This site features advertising from carefully-screened third parties which may use data from cookies to personalise advertising.
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.
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.
Your rights 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 are checked through an automated spam detection service provided by AntiSpam Bee.
