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.

Who we share your data with

We will not use your information to contact you in any manner without your permission or unless we are responding to a communication received from you. We will not share, rent or sell your personal information except with your prior consent or under very limited circumstances. Such circumstances may include, but are not limited to, situations in which we are required to share information by law (for example, to respond to a properly issued subpoena or court order); we are required to cooperate with courts of law, authorities, or federal, state and/or local governmental agencies; we have to defend or establish an actual or potential claim, cause of action or lawsuit; one of our insurers requires information in connection with an insurance policy or insurance coverage; we believe that disclosure is necessary in order to protect our rights; we believe that disclosure is necessary in order to protect the rights and/or safety of our users or other individuals or entities; and other similar situations. We may use, process and/or share information collected on the Website for purposes of analyzing the Website’s operations. Such analysis may require using information regarding inquiries and/or repeat inquiries, purchases made with the aid of the Website, site traffic history and patterns, user behavior, user satisfaction, feedback received from third-party merchants or other third parties, and so forth. In such instances, we will do our best to assure that the information used, processed and/or shared is anonymous and does not contain any data that identifies you personally. Internally, we may use the information provided by you to improve operations, to further enhance the Website and services offered on it, for purposes of research and development, to address complaints, disputes and similar or related matters, for statistical purposes, to troubleshoot in the event of technical difficulties, and to generate reports. In the event that we sell or otherwise transfer any or all of our assets to a third party, your personal information may be one of the assets transferred, and this Privacy Statement may be modified by the third party in a manner that is beyond our control. The Website may make available links to third-party websites. Please be advised that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties.

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.
