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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

The Register form collects your email address and a unique username of your choosing. Your email address is collected for verifying your account and allowing future logins or to retrieve your password when lost. Your username will be displayed along with any articles you have submitted.
To complete the essential data used for providing you with the account service, we ask you for a password. This password is encrypted and only used to allow users to login to their accounts.
Optional user data may be provided, in the form of a full name, through the account settings form. The optional information is currently only used for more personal addressing of the user. The information provided in the register and login forms is used to provide you with the account service.

Currently, we only use this information in case we need to address you when we register a violation of terms and conditions by you.
