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 form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

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

Cookies

View our cookie policy.

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 exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. Example: Videos on this site are often embedded from YouTube and Vimeo.

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

Analytics

Google Analytics uses cookies to help us monitor the website’s usage, thereby helping us improve. Data is stored there indefinitely in order to help us better track site usage and improvements. To protect your privacy, IP addresses are anonymized. You can opt out here.

Login Attempts

For security purposes, information on login attempts that is needed to protect the site is tracked and stored indefinitely.

Who We Share Your Data With

We share information with third parties who help us provide our services to you; for example:

  • our website host (SiteGround) and any third parties they use to fulfill that task (you can view SiteGround’s policy here), and
  • JetPack, which aids in site functionality. You can read their privacy policy here.

While most of our website work is done in house, we also occasionally obtain technical help from a trusted source, giving them temporary access to anything on our website itself in order to troubleshoot a problem or otherwise work on the site.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who on Our Team Has Access

We give access to the site owner and any contributing authors in order to maintain the site.

How Long We Retain Your Data

We store analytic information indefinitely, as that allows us to see how our website has changed over time, thereby helping us improve.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are 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 provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete 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 request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request 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.
