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.

Your email address, name or your comment are not used for any advertising and are not shared with anyone.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included as that information is available to anyone who wishes to download the image from the website. Visitors to the website can download any image and extract any location data from images on the website if you fail to remove such data.

Contact forms

Only your name and email address are recorded for contact form correspondence. We use both for replying to your messages. These will never be used for anything else and will not be sold or given to anyone else.


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 or in some cases until you delete cookies yourself.

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 (mostly Instagram and Pinterest).

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We have no legal connection with third-party websites and have no access to their data on you and do not share data with them.


Google analytics and Google tags are used to determine demographics of website visitors and to have overview on which links are useful and which are not.

None of this data is sold or given to any third party and is kept safe in webmaster’s Google account.

Who we share your data with

Absolutely nobody. We only keep your data to provide great experience and improve the community. None of your personal data will ever be intentionally shared with anyone else.

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.

We will provide the data and erase or anonymize it at earliest convenience and it can tak up to a fortnight (14 days) from the day of the request.

Where we send your data

Data will not be sent anywhere. Your data is safe with us.
