Comments Section

Whenever a user posts a comment on our platform, we collect the information entered in the comment form. Additionally, to combat spam, we gather the commenter’s IP address and the details of their browser’s user agent string.

A unique, anonymized string (hash) generated from your email address might be shared with the Gravatar service to check if you’re a user. This is subject to the Gravatar service’s privacy policy, available at Gravatar Privacy. Once your comment is approved, your profile image will be publicly displayed alongside your comment.

Image Uploads

We advise against uploading images to the site that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Be aware that site visitors might download and extract any location information from images posted on the site.

Cookie Policy

Opting to leave a comment on our site allows you to save your name, email, and website in cookies for convenience, so you don’t need to re-enter this information when commenting again. These cookies are kept for one year.

Visiting our login page places a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies, which does not contain personal information and is removed once you close your browser.

Logging in sets cookies to remember your login details and screen display choices. Login cookies are valid for two days, while screen option cookies last a year. Choosing “Remember Me” keeps you logged in for two weeks. Logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article places a cookie in your browser to remember the article’s ID you edited, which expires after one day.

Content from Other Websites

Our articles may feature embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles). This content from other websites acts as if the visitor has directly visited the other site, which may collect your data, use cookies, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including if you have an account and are logged into those websites.

Data Sharing

In the event of a password reset request, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Data Retention

Comments and their metadata are stored indefinitely for recognizing and approving subsequent comments automatically, bypassing moderation queues.

For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their profile. Users can manage their personal information at any time, except for changing their username. Site administrators can also manage this information.

Your Data Rights

Registered users or those who have left comments can request an exported file of personal data we hold about them, including any data submitted to us. Requests to delete personal data we hold can be made, except for data kept for legal, administrative, or security reasons.

Data Processing

Comments may be reviewed by an automated spam detection service to prevent spam.
