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: 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

There is always the potential for submitted forms to be intercepted by unwanted parties. Our site information, to include submitted form fields, is encrypted to limit any chance of your personal information to be recorded by a third party. However, you should never send sensitive information in any form on this site. The data of a submitted form may be stored in our site database to be retrieved at a later date.


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 visit our login page, 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.

Ads on this site may also be using cookies in the same way that cookies would be used on the advertiser site. Ads come from Google, Amazon, eBay and others.

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.


This site records traffic statistics. Analytics does not include personal or sensitive data, but it does record the region, pages explored, and time on the site among other miscellaneous actions of each visitor.

Who we share your data with

We do not directly share any personal user information. Data pertaining to Analytics and Traffic Stats is gathered by and therefore shared with Google. Ad views and miscellaneous IP related information may also be shared with advertisers.

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.

Your contact information

Any name provided in a contact form or other submission on the site, along with your email address, will likely be stored with the record of you communication.

Additional information

How we protect your data

This site uses SSL encryption and additional site security plugins/services to enhance the site beyond that of a typical small business or hobby website.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Since we do not gather and store any sensitive data or unique data other than email address and name, we do not have a specific procedure in place for reacting to a data breach.
