Comments

When someone makes a comment on our website, we gather the information that is shown in the comment form, as well as the commenter’s IP address and the browser user agent string. This allows us to better detect spam. Whenever you post a remark on our website, you will be given the option to have your name, email address, and website kept in cookies, but you are not required to do so. These have been made available to you as a courtesy so that you won’t have to keep entering your details every time you make a new comment on the site. The shelf life of these cookies is one year.

Whenever you visit our login page, we will momentarily store a cookie in order to determine whether or not your browser supports cookies. This cookie will be removed from your computer after you shut your browser, and it will not contain any personally identifiable information.

When you log in, we will also generate a number of cookies on your computer in order to save the information of your login as well as your preferences about how the screen is shown. Unlike login cookies, which are only valid for two days, screen option cookies are good for a whole year. For two weeks, your login will be persistent if you choose “Remember Me.” Once you log out of your account, the cookies that were used for your login will be removed and erased.

Whenever you choose to publish an updated version of an article, a new cookie will be kept in your browser. This cookie does not include any personally identifiable information and just holds the post ID of the item that you just updated. After one day, it will be useless.

Embedded content from other websites

If you leave a comment, both the comment and the metadata associated with it will be stored permanently. This is done so that any follow-up comments may be recognised and approved automatically, rather than having to wait in a moderation queue for them to be reviewed.

If a user chooses to register on our website (assuming there are any users who want to register), we will additionally keep any personally identifying information that they supply in their user profile. Every user has the ability to see, make changes to, or remove their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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

You have the ability to request to acquire an exported file of the personal data we possess on you, which includes any data you have submitted to us, if you have an account on our website or have made comments on articles that we have posted. You also have the option to request that we delete any personal information that we have stored about you. This does not include any data that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security concerns. Those are the only types of data that are not included.
