What personal data do we collect and why do we collect them? 


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form in addition to the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to facilitate spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (otherwise known as a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile image is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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

Who we share your data with? 

How long do we keep your data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and related metadata are kept indefinitely. This is how we can automatically recognise and approve any subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except their user name which cannot be changed). Website administrators can also view and modify this information.

What rights do you have on your data?

If you have an account on this site, or you have left comments, you can request to receive a file exported from the site with the personal information we have about you, including the information you have provided to us. You can also request us to delete all personal data concerning you. This does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where do we send your data?

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