What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors comment on the website, we collect the data shown on the comment form, in addition to the visitor’s IP address and browser data, to assist in the detection of spam.

An anonymized string of characters created from your email (also called “hash”) can be sent to Gravatar to verify that you use the service. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile photo is publicly visible next to your comment.



If you upload images to the website, avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download these images from the website and extract their location data from them.

With whom we share your data

How long do we keep your data?

If you comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. We do this so that it is possible to automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments instead of retaining them for moderation.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also save the personal information you provide in your user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (it is just not possible to change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.


What are your rights over your data?

If you have an account on this website or if you have commented, you can request an exported file of the personal data we keep about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we remove any personal data that we have about you. This does not include any data that we are required to have for administrative, legal or security purposes.


Where do we send your data?

Visitor comments can be marked by an automatic spam detection service.
