For those who want the short answer: we will always, ALWAYS, respect your privacy, your email address, and the information you give us. We will never sell, trade, or abuse the information you submit to us.


What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As with most websites in the Internet, when you simply visit our website, you automatically give us certain information. Such information may include your IP address, what website you visited prior to visiting our site and what site you visited when you left our site, the date and time you visited, information about your computer’s operating system and the type of web browser that you are using. This basic information is automatically recorded when you visit our website. To obtain this information, we may use cookies, that is information that our website server automatically transfers to your computer. This information may be used to track your session on our website and may also be used to customize our website content for you as a visitor or customer. If you are using one of the common Internet web browsers, you can set your browser to either let you know when you receive a cookie or to deny cookie access to your computer.

We may also collect any information or data you provide us by posting it on our website or that you provide to us by e-mail. You always have the right to choose not to provide us with such information. If you elect to withhold any information or data we request, we may deny you access to some or all of the services or features on our website. If your transaction with our website involves payment by credit card, debit card, checks, money orders or third party online payment services, we will collect information related to the transaction as part of the course of doing business with you. Such information will include, but is not limited to, your billing address, telephone number, and other information necessary for the transaction.


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

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

We may use various software tools and autoresponders to communicate with you via e-mail, text, and postal mail. We use a verified opt-in system to protect your privacy for such communications and you have the option to opt-out of such communications using the links or contact details contained in each message.


Cookies

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 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

Your information’s safe with us. So there’s no worries about getting spam emails about Viagra or debt consolidation. We’ll never sell your email address or any of the information you submit on this site to 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.

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.
