What personal data we collect and why we collect it


We collect comments to posts on our website. Any information that users enter in the comment form (including name, email address, and free-form text) will be stored and displayed on our website. By submitting a comment, you agree to this use of this data. 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. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


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. You can turn off the use of cookies at anytime by changing your specific browser settings.


We use Google Analytics to analyze the effectiveness of our content. Google Analytics collects anonymous information about your visit to our website, including where users are located (country, city) and demographic information such as age and gender. This information cannot identify you personally.

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.

Republished content

We are not responsible for republished content from this blog on other blogs or websites without our permission. In our content, we link to other websites, for which we are not responsible; we encourage you to review the privacy policies of those websites separately.

How long we retain your data

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.
