Privacy Policy

Version 1.4 Last updated: March 21.2022


This Privacy policy covers two areas, our website


Our website address is:


What personal data we collect and why we collect 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 


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.




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.




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.

If you visit our login page, we  will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts 

cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you

 close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article,  an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie 

includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the  article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


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.

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


Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, 

Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, (“Google Analytics” or “Google”). Google Analytics employs cookies that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. 

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our website, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.

In using Google Analytics our website employs the extension “anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our website, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to our website.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly as noted elsewhere in this

 Privacy Policy. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Google Analytics also offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. 

The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. 

However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage.

Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.

You can find additional information on how to install the browser add-on referenced above at the following link:

For the cases in which personal data is transferred to the US, Google has self-certified pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield



How long we retain your data

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.


Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.



By using our website or plugin, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its Terms and Conditions.
