What personal data we collect and why

Comments

When visitors leave comments on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s chain of user agents to help in the detection of spam.

An anonymous chain created from your email address (also referred to as hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if it is in use. The privacy policy for Gravatar’s service is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Upon the approval of your comment, your profile image is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that include location data (GPS EXIF). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from the website’s images.

With whom we share your data

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, its content and its metadata are indefinitely stored. This is so that we can recognise and approve consecutive comments automatically, instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

From the users registering on our website (for those that do), we also store the personal information provided in the user profile. All users can view, edit and delete their personal information at any time (except for their username which cannot be changed). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.

What rights do you have related to your personal data

If you have an account or have left a comment on this website, you can request receipt of an export file of the personal data we hold on you, including any data you have not provided. You can also request the deletion of any personal detail we hold on you. This does not include any data we are obliged to stored for administrative, legal or security purposes.
