What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

Contact form information you enter is solely used to send an email and is not captured, stored, or used in any other manner.


We use cookies, small files sent to your computer which store information through your browser, and web beacons (tiny graphics, aka “pixel tags”) as part of our digital functionality (e.g. to store your preferences and understand your user behavior), and to offer responsive elements based on users’ actions. This information helps us improve the experience you and other visitors have with the website. For more information on cookies and how to control or delete them, go to: www.aboutcookies.org.

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

We provide you with the choice to accept third-party content or not, as we prompt consent boxes for all embedded content, and no data is transferred before you have consented to it.

The checkboxes below show you all embeds you have consented to so far. You can opt-out any time by un-checking them and clicking the update button.


We use Google Analytics to track site visits. You can learn more about how Google uses data when you use our site at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/

Who we share your data with

Some of your data is stored on third party services. These include Google (Analytics and reCAPTCHA) and Mailerlite (only when signing up for our Newsletter). This information is not available to any third party for their use and is never sold or transferred to third parties. 

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive 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.

If you signed up for the newsletter, you can unsubscribe from the list from within any email.
