What personal data we collect and why we collect it

With the exception of comments and subscriptions we do not collect, store, exploit or redistribute any personal information intentionally or inadvertently provided to this site. Information provided for purposes of e-mail or RSS subscription and comments for specific posts are presumed to be provided consensually and are retained and used exclusively for those purposes.


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:

If your comment is approved, your profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment and it is approved, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. All comments are reviewed and approved prior to publication. Comments and respective metadata that are not approved are deleted. Subscription data is periodically reviewed and deleted.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked and deleted through an automated spam detection service.


This site employs MonsterInsights for GDPR and EU compliance including anonymizing IP addresses, disabling demo and interest reporting and disabling UserID tracking.
