Data Collection from Comments:
When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data provided in the comment form. Additionally, we record the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection.

To enhance user experience, the Gravatar service may share an anonymised string derived from your email address (commonly called a hash) to check if you are using it. For more details on Gravatar’s privacy practices, please visit Once your comment is approved, your profile picture, as associated with your Gravatar, will be visible to the public alongside your comment.


Guidelines for Image Uploads:
If you choose to upload images to our website, we advise against including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract any location data from images shared on the site.


Comment Cookies:
When you leave a comment on our site, you can save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This feature is designed for your convenience, so you do not have to re-enter your details when you leave another comment. These cookies will be stored for one year.

Login Page Cookies:
If you visit our login page, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded once you close your browser.

Login Cookies:
Several cookies will be set up upon logging in to save your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are valid for two days, while cookies for screen options last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login information will be retained for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Article Edit Cookies:
An additional cookie will be saved in your browser when you edit or publish an article. This cookie does not contain personal data and only indicates the post ID of the article you have edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, and articles). This embedded content behaves as if the visitor had directly visited the other website.

These external websites may collect data about you, utilise cookies, incorporate additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, particularly if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Sharing Policy

When You Request a Password Reset:
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Data Retention Policy

Duration of Data Retention:
If you leave a comment, both the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to automatically recognise and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We also store the personal information provided in user profiles for users who register on our website (if applicable). Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time, except their username. Website administrators can also see and edit this information.

Your Data Rights

Access and Control 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 may also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Transmission

Where Your Data is Sent:
Visitor comments may be examined through an automated spam detection service.
