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. Comments are not currently allowed, so this policy applies only in the event comments are turned on.

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.
Embedded content from other websites
Entries on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. We do not currently have any embedded content on our site.
We use Google Analytics to collect information about site use. We’re not interested in you, individually, other than what an anonymous “you” does here. We’ve set it up to retain only impersonal data and that for the shortest permitted time. Here is the overall general statement about Google Analytics and data privacy. We have added code to our analytic feature “to anonymize the information sent by the tracker objects by removing the last octet of the IP address prior to its storage” (quote from Google Analytics). This purportedly makes it impossible to locate a user specifically. Google also offers an opt-out extension for the Chrome browser; there is a similar, privately-developed extension for Firefox. They claim to block all recording of your use of the site.
Who we share your data with
Only the required services, and then only according to their privacy and terms of service policies.
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 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.
