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


If you upload photographs to the website, you should avoid uploading photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the site can download and let out any location data from images on the site.


If you leave a comment 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 pack in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no intimate data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen demonstrate choices. Login cookies last for TWO days, and screen options cookies last for a yr.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, photographs, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other sites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other site.

These sites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed extra 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.

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 supermarket the private information they provide in their user profile. All users can witness, edit, or delete their individual information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also observe 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 individual data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any private data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are compelled to keep for administrative, slightly legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

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