What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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

A synonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash )is provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

As on date, we do not support any contact forms. In future, if we do, we will let you know the terms and conditions

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to decide if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie has no personal data and 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 display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites

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

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed more third-party tracking, and check your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and  logged in to that website.

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be 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 store the personal information they give in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or drop their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see 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 ask to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also ask that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

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