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 detection.

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.

Contact forms


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

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

Given the recent EU requirements, plus best practices, I’m currently looking into the following paragraph’s intent and will update the terms as things change. Simply put, I don’t know exactly how to do the following at this time and need to learn before offering this promise. Until that time, expect you cannot delete or download your content.

Working on this part: “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.

It is my intent to use an Amazon Affiliates account to monetize some of the resource building on the site. If you do not wish for your visits to be tracked, you should look into the Electric Frontier Foundation‘s Privacy Badger browser plugin. I use this in combination with uBlock and believe this is the best way to protect your personal data while surfing the internet.

How we protect your data

Data tracking is part of the internet today, for both good and bad purposes. Running a website often requires knowing what viewers are doing in order to better prepare content and even architect the site. And monetizing some of the work through Amazon Affiliates does share some data. So be aware policies are likely to change.

At the start, there are no plans to share data or allow third parties to access data outside of visitor analytics offered through WordPress. If I introduce new services which allow any form of visitor data to be used, I will update this page. Any inclusions will happen after careful research.

What data breach procedures we have in place

This is a hobby site and any procedures will be in partnership with my hosting company and authorities if the situation warrants their involvement.

What third parties we receive data from

None I know of at this time.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

WordPress offers some visitor insights and we may use visitor data to identify best methods for advertising and sales ventures.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

None that I know of.
