This policy elucidates the data types we collect, their intended purposes, and the protective measures we implement and respect your privacy and strive to provide transparency in our data handling practices.
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.
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.
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.
Visiting our login page, 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.
Upon logging in, we will establish a series of cookies to retain your login credentials and screen display preferences. These login-related cookies have a duration of two days, while screen options cookies remain active for a year. If you opt for the “Remember Me” feature, your login status will endure for a span of two weeks. It is important to note that the login cookies are deleted upon logging out of your account.

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 external websites have the potential to gather information about your activities, employ cookies, incorporate supplementary third-party tracking mechanisms, and oversee your engagement with embedded content. This involves monitoring your interactions with embedded content, particularly when you possess an account and are logged into the corresponding external website.
Google Analytics tracks information such as your location, used device, visited pages, and logged-in time. We utilize this information to enhance your user experience.
Third-party email platform Policy
We use the secure third-party email platform to keep you informed.
How long we retain your data
Upon submitting a comment, we retain both the comment itself and its associated metadata indefinitely. We implement this practice to automatically recognize and approve subsequent comments. This approach eliminates the necessity of holding these comments in a moderation queue, thereby enhancing the efficiency of our comment moderation process.
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.
