Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: or

What personal data are collected and how are they collected?


When visitors leave comments on the site, data on the comment form are saved, as well as the IP address and the browser user agent, to help with spam detection.

An anonymous string created through the user email address (also known as a hash) can be sent to Gravatar to check if the user is using it. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: After the user comment is approved, the profile picture is displayed publicly next to the comment.


When uploading images to the site, the user should avoid uploading images with GPS embedded data. Visitors can download and extract the GPS data from the website’s images.


If the user leaves a comment on our site, the user can opt to save his/her name, email address and site in cookies. This is for the convenience of the user, to save from having to fill in data again when leaving another comment. These cookies will last one year.

If the user has an account and login on our site, a temporary cookie will be set up to determine if the browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and it will be deleted when the browser is closed.

When logging in, cookies will be set up to save the user login information and display screen choices. Login cookies last one year. If the user selects “Remember Me,” the active session will continue for two weeks. When logging out, the login cookies will be removed.

If the user edits or publishes an article, an additional cookie will be stored in our browser. This cookie does not include personal data, it only indicates the content ID of the article that has been edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other sites

Articles on our site can include embedded content (for example: videos, images, articles, etc.). The embedded content from other sites behaves as if the user visited those sites.

Our site can collect data about users, use cookies, incorporate third-party tracking and, therefore, monitor interactions, including registering interactions with embedded content if the user has an account and is logged in on our site.

Analytical Data

How long are the user data stored for?

If the user leaves a comment, the comment and its metadata are saved indefinitely. This happens so that it is possible to automatically recognise and approve any subsequent comments, instead of placing them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our site (if any), we save personal information given on the user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of not being able to change the username). The site administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do you have concerning your data?

If the user has an account on our site, or the user has left comments, the user can ask to receive an export file with saved personal data, including any personal data that has been indicated. The user can also request that saved data are deleted. This does not include any personal data that are mandatory for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where your data are sent to?

Visitor comments can be checked through an automatic spam detection service.
