Who We Are
What Personal Data We Collect & 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.
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 & Email Subscription
Within this site, there are options to join the email subscription (to receive notifications of new posts by email) as well as to send a message to the site administrator using the contact form in the ‘Contact’ section under the ‘About’ category. In each case, if you submit your personal data in the information fields, you are consenting to having this site store your submitted information so that the site administrator can respond to your inquiry or add you to the email subscription list. Information submitted will only be used for this manner and will not be shared with third party entities.

If you agree to this, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to treat you as an individual entity. The web application can then customize its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and recalling information about your preferences.

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.
Who We Share Your Data With
We do not sell, trade, or rent any personal identification information received on this site with other parties. Generic aggregated demographic information is used only in the context of analyzing site traffic from users to better improve the site and tailor the site content to the needs of the users.
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.
How We Protect Your Data
Through wordpress.org, appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures are used to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of user personal information, username, password, including any transaction information.
