What personal data is collected and why I collect it
Data we process if you visit our Sites:
By visiting the website, your computer or device automatically sends technical information that is stored in log files, including the following:

- The IP address of your device as well as your internet service provider (ISP);

We process this data to allow you to surf the website and to ensure its functionality. We also process the collected data to perform analyses on the performance of the website, to continuously improve the website and correct errors, as well as to prevent or uncover abuse. The data collected is also further processed in aggregated or pseudonymized form to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ paths around the website, and gather demographic information about the visitors to the site as a whole or to improve the user experience on our website and guarantee the safety of the backend systems.
When visitors leave comments on this site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
If you leave a comment or submit a form 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.
If you visit our login page, the website 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.
When you log in, the website will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article or comment, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
Who I share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on this 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.
What rights you have 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
All data captured is stored on servers hosted in various countries, primarily in the United States of America.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. The primary spam detection service used on this website is Akismet by Automattic (https://akismet.com/).
