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 anonymised 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.

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 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.


Who we share your data with

To aid improvement to the service we use Google Analytics to aggregate and anonymise website visitor data. This does not allow us to identify individuals as no personal identifying information is provided through this tool. Google have a privacy policy here: There may from time to time also be a Google Maps tool to show a geographical location for website visitors which is also covered under that Google privacy policy.

Website visitor data is anonymised by Google Analytics and you can read more about that here: Ultimately we are unable to determine the identity of individual visitors from the Google Analytics and consequently is confident that your privacy is protected.

By default we opt to let any visitor data for Analytics profiles expire after 26 months. As part of providing hosting and website services, functional plug-ins, tracking analytics, social media accounts, and other services may form part of the service after consultation and agreement with you, in which case you may be made aware of any additional privacy considerations.

From time to time we may employ the use of Facebook Apps to add functionality to website services. This means that should the website visitor opt-in to using the App, the App will only request the data need to operate the application.

This basic account information should only consist of basic information which may include name, email, gender, birthday, current city, and profile picture URL unless otherwise specified in the use of the App.

We obliged to meet the policies set out by Facebook when implementing an App for public use.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.
