When individuals leave comments on the site, we collect the information provided in the comments form, alongside the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string, which assists in spam detection.

If you decide to upload images to the website, please be mindful to exclude images containing embedded location data (EXIF GPS). It's important to note that website visitors can download and extract location data from images found on the site.


In case you leave a comment on our website, you have the option to opt-in to save your name, email address, and website details in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience, eliminating the need to re-enter your information when making subsequent comments. These cookies remain valid for a period of one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Our articles may include embedded content such as videos, images, or articles. Embedded content from external websites functions similarly to visiting the respective websites directly.

These external websites may collect data about you, employ cookies, integrate additional third-party tracking mechanisms, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This includes tracking your interactions if you have an account and are logged in on those external websites.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

In the event of a comment, both the comment and its associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This approach streamlines the automatic recognition and approval of subsequent comments, eliminating the need for a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, their personal information provided in their user profile is also stored. Users retain the ability to access, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of changing their username). Administrators of the website have the authority to view and modify this information as well.

If you possess an account on this website or have previously left comments, you have the right to request an exported file containing your personal data that we have on record, including any data you've furnished to us. Furthermore, you may request the removal of any personal data held about you, excluding data that we are legally obligated to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent
