You trust us with your valuable information. We respect this, and are committed to keeping it safe. That’s why we’re updating our Privacy Policy to meet the new requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We have updated our privacy policy. This includes changes in how we collect and use your personal data, how long we keep it for, who is entitled to see it, and more.

It is important for us to give you the opportunity to review and understand these changes because they will affect how we process your data from now on.

You may request a copy of your personal data (which can include things like your name, e-mail address, IP address, location data, device information and more) by contacting us at


We store any comments left by our visitors on our blog, and also their IP addresses and browser strings so we can identify them if they ever post again.

If you want to use your own photo instead of your gravatar, go ahead. But please note that we need to know which one you prefer.


Don’t upload any photos containing GPS coordinates. Visitors can then download these coordinates from the photo and use them to track where you’ve been online.


If you leave a comment, you can choose whether or not to keep your comment private by saving it to your account. Your comment will stay visible to others until it expires.

If you keep using this site, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive cookies.

When you log in to our site, we will set up several cookie files to store your login details and your preferences. These include a session cookie that lasts only until you close your browser, and a persistent cookie that remains stored on your computer after closing your browser. We do not store any personal data about you in these cookie files. You can change your settings regarding how these cookie files are handled in your browser; see your browser’s help menu for instructions.

When you edit or write an article, a small text file called a “cookies” is stored in your browser. These cookies include no personal data and merely indicate the post ID of the page where you wrote the article. They expire after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

If you’re viewing an article on this site containing embedded video, images, articles, or other embedded media, that means the author of that page has included your name in their code. If you don’t want to appear in this list, feel free to contact us.

Web servers often store some form of identifying data about visitors’ activities within their own databases.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a message, your message and its meta­data are kept for an indefinite period of time. We use this to help us identify and approve any subsequent messages automatically.

We collect some basic personal info from new registrants when they sign up for an account. They can view, modify, or delete that info at any time. Administrators can also see and modify that info.
