What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Note: our goal is to be fully compliant with all relevant privacy laws, including GDPR. If you want clarification on any of our policies, please contact us and we will be happy to work with you.


When visitors leave comments on the site we may collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

And/or, we may use a third-party service like Disqus, which has its own privacy policy and privacy tools.

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: 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.

Contact forms

If you contact us, you consent to us storing your information so we can respond to your inquiry.


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.

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.

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


This website may use Google Analytics. We make every effort not to send Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to Google Analytics.

Who we share your data with

If you sign up for one of our mailing lists, we use a third party service to send those emails. You can unsubscribe at any time, and we will totally respect that choice and stop sending you emails. If you wish to have your information completely deleted, contact us and we will put you in touch with the company so they can assist you with that.

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.

For data you have sent to third party services (such as our mailing list or Disqus for comments), we may be able to assist you in contacting them about your data.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Security Monitoring and Auditing

This Application uses the WP Security Audit Log plugin as a security monitoring and auditing plugin to create a log of data about the ways that this Application is used by those who have login access to it. This information is collected and retained by the Application administrator for, as the name might suggest, security and auditing purposes.

Once activated, the plugin logs a timestamped record of when a logged-in user takes the following actions:

Logs in and out;
Creates, deletes or modifies or views a post (be it a page, post or a post with a custom type);
Creates, deletes or modifies tags;
Creates, modifies, deletes, or approves comments;
Creates, modifies or deletes widgets and menus;
Creates, modifies (this including changing the password), deletes a user or views another users’ profile;
Installs, activates, deactivates, or uninstalls a theme or plugin;
Changes system settings such as reading, general, or permalinks;

A full list of logged actions is available here.

The timestamped record includes the following information:

The user’s login name
The user’s actual name as entered when their account was set up
The user’s WordPress role (Author, editor, etc)
The IP address from which the user accessed the Application
The time and date of each action detailed above while the user was logged in.
The data captured by the WP Security Audit Log plugin is stored by the Application administrator for a period of time solely for security and auditing purposes.

Information captured by WP Security Audit Log is accessed only by the administrators of the Application and is stored on the Application’s database. These administrators may be located outside the European Union.

Information captured by the WP Security Audit Log is not shared with third parties except in the case of law enforcement requests.
