Comments: 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. We welcome and encourage comments on our website, as they allow for community engagement and help us understand our readers’ needs and interests. However, we reserve the right to moderate and remove any comments that are offensive, irrelevant, or spammy.

Media: 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. We may occasionally use images, videos, and other media on our website to enhance the user experience and provide visual aids for our content. We strive to use only media that is relevant and legally obtained, and we give proper credit to the original source whenever possible.

Cookies: We use cookies to store information about visitors’ preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages the site visitor accesses or visits, and to personalize or customize our web page content based upon visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser. Like many websites, we use cookies to enhance the user experience and track website analytics. Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer and can help us remember your preferences and improve our website performance. You can choose to disable cookies in your browser settings if you prefer not to have them stored on your device.

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. Occasionally, we may embed content from other websites, such as videos or social media posts, on our website. We strive to use only embedded content that is relevant and legally obtained, and we give proper credit to the original source whenever possible.

Who we share your data with: We do not share your personal information with third-parties, except when required to by law. We do not sell or share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or marketers. However, we may share your data with trusted third-party service providers who help us operate our website, such as website hosting and maintenance companies.

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. We retain your personal data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, such as to provide you with requested information or to comply with legal obligations. We regularly review and delete any data that is no longer necessary.

What rights you have over your data: If you have left comments on this site, 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. You have the right to access, modify, or delete any personal data we have collected from you. You can also request that we stop processing your data or withdraw your consent to our use of your data. If you have any concerns about how we are handling your data, please contact us using the information provided on our website.

Where your data is sent: Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We do not transfer your personal data outside of the United States or the European Economic Area. However, some of our third-party service providers may store or process your data in other countries, in which case we ensure that appropriate data protection measures are in place.
