We only collect data shown in the comments form. We also track the visitor’s IP address and the type of browser agent string when visitors leave comments on the site to aid in spam detection.
The Gravatar service may receive an anonymized string derived from your email address (also known as a hash) to determine if you are using it. The privacy statement for the Gravatar service can be found at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be visible in the context of your comment.
If you visit our login page, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser supports cookies. This cookie contains no personal information and is deleted when the browser is closed.
If you edit or publish an article, a second cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and shows the blog post ID you edited. It expires in one day.
Embedded content from other websites
This site’s articles may contain embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). The behavior of embedded content from other websites is the same as if the visitor had actually visited the other website.
These websites may collect information about you, employ cookies, embed in extra tracking, and monitor third-party sources on your interaction with embedded content.
Your IP address may be included in the reset password email if you request a password reset.
Data retention time
The comment and its associated metadata are preserved in perpetuity if you leave any comment. This permits us to identify and approve subsequent comments without holding them in a moderation queue.
