As a general rule, this website does not collect your personal information unless you chose to provide that information to us. When you choose to provide us with your personal information, you are giving us your permission to use that information for the stated purposes listed in this privacy policy. If you choose not to provide us with that information, it might limit the features and services that you can use on this website.

Please note that this privacy policy may be updated at any time. The most recent version is indicated by the “Last updated” date at the top of this page.

What data is collected and why


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.

If you use Gravatar, you may want to check their privacy policy here.


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.

Interactions with other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites (e.g. social networks) 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.

The same applies if you click on social media sharing icons or if you visit our social media profiles. In that case, you might want to check their respective Privacy Policies.

WordPress Cookies

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.

Analytics cookies

This website uses Google Analytics to measure traffic and  understand webpage usage, in order to provide a better user experience. Google Analytics does not collect any personally identifiable information or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Read more about how Google uses information.

If you don’t want your data collected with Google Analytics, you can download and install this opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more details about its installation, please refer to relevant help resources for your specific browser.

Regardless of the above mentioned add-on, your data will not be collected by Google Analytics on this website if you refuse or revoke your consent (please refer to the ‘Cookies consent’ section).

If you want to disable cookies from every website you visit, you can change your browser settings.

How we handle your data

How we protect your data

This website uses SSL/HTTPS to encrypt our user communications with the servers, so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization. Furthermore, WordPress and the plugins used on this website (including security ones) are kept updated to reduce hacking risks.

How long we retain your data

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

Where we send your data

We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating this website or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property or safety. Non personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties as noted within the ‘What data is collected and why’ section of this privacy policy. Moreover, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What rights you have over your data

If you 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.
