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.

We currently don’t enable comments because of spam.


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.

Only admins should be able to upload images or other media.


We use anonymous cookies to prevent you from seeing the same popup repetitively in an attempt to make your experience more pleasant while still delivering time sensitive messaging.

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 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 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We use WP Statistics to collect analytic information, which tracks which pages you visit, your masked/anonymized IP address, referring site, browser, search keywords, and OS. From the IP address we can also guess your city and country. These data are not connected or associated to you as a user, and so is apparently not considered personal data. This data is stored exclusively on our servers. We also have the Slimstat plugin installed but don’t use it.

We also use Popup Maker, which anonymously tracks popup views and conversions.

Additionally, Mailchimp tracks when you open our email newsletters and stuff like that.
