As users interact with our site through comments, we collect and store data provided in the comment form. Additionally, for spam detection, we gather the visitor’s IP address and browser details.

Media Uploads

In case you upload images onto the website, please avoid those containing embedded location data (EXIF GPS), as website visitors can download and extract this data.

Cookie Policy

Should you leave a comment, you can choose to save your name, email, and website in cookies, sparing you from re-entering these details for future comments. Such cookies will be stored for one year.

A temporary cookie is set when you visit our login page, to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie, which does not store any personal data, is discarded upon closing your browser.

Upon logging in, we set up several cookies to store your login information and screen preferences. Login cookies last two days, screen preference cookies last a year. Selecting “Remember Me” extends your login duration to two weeks. Login cookies are removed once you log out.

Editing or publishing an article results in an additional cookie saved in your browser. This cookie, void of personal data, indicates the post ID of your recent article and expires after 1 day.

Third-Party Content

Our website may feature embedded content (like videos, images, articles, etc.) that behaves exactly as if the visitor has accessed the source website.

Such websites might gather data about you, use cookies, embed extra third-party tracking, and oversee your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you’re logged into that site.

Data Sharing

In the event of a password reset request, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Data Retention

Any comments made on our site and their metadata are stored indefinitely, allowing us to approve any subsequent comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For registered users, we store the personal details provided in their profile. While users can see, edit, or delete their personal information anytime, they cannot alter their username. Website administrators can also view and modify this information.

If you have an account or have left comments on our site, you may request an exported file of your personal data that we hold, as well as request deletion of any personal data. This excludes any data we are required to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
