What personal data this website collects and why it collects it
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.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving 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.
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.
How long this website retains your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so this website can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you 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 this website. You can also request that the website erases any personal data it holds about you. This does not include any data the website is obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where the website sends your data
Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.
