Who we are

Which data we collect and why

Comments

When visitors leave comments, we collect the data showed in the comment form, the IP address of the visitor and the string used by the browser user agent, in order to facilitate spam identification.

An anonymous (hashed) string created from your email address could be sent to Gravatar, to check if you are using it. Gravatar Privacy Policy is available here.  After your comment is approved, your profile image is visible within your comment.

We collect information about visitors who comment on the site and who use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information collected depends on how the user has set Akismet, but normally the information includes the IP address of the commenter, the user agent, the referrer, and the URL of the site (along with other information provided directly by the user who comments, such as name, username, email address, and the text of the comment).

Cookies

When you leace comments, you may decide to save your name, email address and website in a cookie. Cookies are used for your own benefit, so that you don’t need to insert your data every time you add a new comment. Cookies are valid for one year.

If you have an account and access this site, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is deleted when you close the browser.

When you log in, several cookies will be set to save your login information and screen display options. The access cookies last two days while the cookies for the screen options last one year. If you select “Remember me”, your access will persist for two weeks. If you exit your account, access cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include personal data, but simply indicates the ID of the just edited article. Expires after 1 day..

Content embedded by other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.). Content embedded by other websites behave exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

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

For how long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is how we can automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except for their username that they can not change). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights do you have on your data?

If you have an account on this site, or you have left comments, you can request to receive a file exported from the site with the personal data we have about you, including the data you have provided. You can also request that we delete all personal data concerning you. This does not include data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments can be checked via an automatic spam detection service.
