Data & Privacy

Who I am
My website address is:

What personal data the website collects
In general I don’t collect any of your data, nor do I share or sell it.

When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 leave a comment you can 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 last for one year.

If you visit the login page, I will set a temporary cookie. It checks if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data. I discard it when you close your browser.

When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days. Screen options cookies last for a year. When you select “Remember Me”, your login persists for two weeks. When you log out of your account, I remove the login cookies.

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 same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies and embed additional third-party tracking. They may 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.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register (if any), I also store the personal information provided in a 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.

Most of the Photos displayed on post are taken from Unsplash and edited on Canva. I normally attribute the source of the picture on the post itself.

That’s about it.
