Personal data and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the website, we gather the data included on the comments form, as well as the IP address of the visitor and the browser user-agent string to help detect spam.
An anonymous string created from our electronic mail address (also called hash) may be provided to Gravatar to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: Once your comment has been approved, your profile image will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website you must not upload images which include location data (GPS, EXIF). Visitors to the website are able to download website images and extract location data from them.

Who we share your data with

How long we store your data for

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. The reason for this is so that we can automatically identify and approve any subsequent comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
We also store the user profile personal information of users who register on our website (if any). All users may view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (they may not, however, change their username). Web administrators can also see and edit this information.

Rights related to your personal data

If you have an account or have posted comments on the website, you can request an export of the personal data file we hold on you, including any data you have provided us with. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we hold on you. This does not include data we are required to store for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Data forwarding

Visitor comments may be reviewed by an automatic spam detection service.
