What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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.

Media

We don’t allow random folks to upload images or files. Ever.

Contact forms

If you contact me for any reason, I’m not going to keep your information or automatically put you on a mailing list. That’s a separate option and one you opt in for willingly and are able to remove yourself from at any time.

Cookies

Cookies are small bits of code that originate in your browser. They help you to navigate the web easier, like automatically logging in on sites you’ve visited before.

As a marketer who utilizes statistical software, those same bits of useful code allow me to see a few bits of anonymous data about you. Based on your internet history, you leave a footprint everywhere you go. Your basic location, your age and gender, things you like, and sometimes your occupation. Marketers use this information to create new content and decide on where to advertise.

You can turn off cookies on your browser to eliminate this kind of info gathering. It will diminish your browsing experience, and will suck big balls when you go to log in somewhere, but you can do it.

It’s most important to note, that the information gathered is very generic in nature. I won’t know specifically where you live, or your name, for instance. It’s just simple demographics that help me to make marketing decisions should I ever decide to advertise the site.

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.

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 also 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.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

Not a soul. Or a sole.

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.
