Privacy Policy

Who I am

The website address is: This site is through a web host located in the United States of America.

What personal data is collected and we collect


When you leave comments on the site, the site collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the your 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.


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.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on this 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 visit the logon page, the site 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.

When you log on, the site will also set up several cookies to save your user credential information and your screen display choices. Logon cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your logon will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the logon 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 (for example, videos, images, articles, and so forth). 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.


Who I share your data with

At this time, data is not shared with anyone, other than the web host and WordPress can collect data from you. 

If presented with a warrant from a law enforcement agency, your data will be shared.

How your data is retained

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.

If you register on the website, the site also stores the personal information you provide in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their user name). 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 on this site. You can also request that your personal data held by this site is erased. This does not include any data this site is 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.
