Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If 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.

Contact forms

If you complete a contact form, it will collect your email address. Russian spam bots may also use our site to spam you, but we will do everything in our power to stop that.


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. You can’t eat them, it’s not that sort of cookie.

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. If in doubt, ask the Cookie Monster to eat them all for you.

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.


We have google analytics tracking on this site to track visitors. We aren’t interested in your demographics, but please note if you have an Gmail account it may give us that information if we chose to look at it for shits and giggles.

Who we share your data with

We won’t share your details with anyone. Mainly as we don’t expect many site visitors we don’t know. But even if you do visit of your own accord, we have no plans to remarket to you or do anything with the data. In fact, right now all we have is analytics cookies on the site. If one day we decide to update the site with pixels to track user activity for remarketing, we may forget to update this page. So on the safe side, bear in mind we may add pixels for our own personal use.

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. Other than that, they go nowhere else.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We don’t want to be hacked, but it’s possible. As such we recommend leaving as little personal information on the site as possible.
