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.
We may retain IP address information of our visitor traffic in order to analyze usage patterns and improve our service.
In order to improve the quality of the website we may also retain anonymous user session information such as heat map behavior, point and scroll behavior and similar data. Personally identifiable information is not recorded.
Who we share your data with
Any data you submit to the site, is accessible by the administrators of the website. We do not share your information with any parties except as required by law.
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.
How we protect your data
We protect customer data by using SSL/HTTPS throughout our site. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so personally identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization.
All digital information is stored and protected in a managed shared hosting environment and third party data storage facilities by industry leading service providers. Our hosting environment is GDPR compliant.
