Suggested text: If you upload images to the site, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Site visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the site.


Suggested text: If you leave a comment on our site, you can enable your name, email address and site to be stored in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to re-fill in your details the next time you leave a comment. These cookies will be stored for 1 year.

If you have an account on the site and you log in, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser supports cookies, the cookie does not contain any personal information and is deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set a few cookies to save your login information and screen settings. Login cookies are stored for 2 days and screen settings cookies are stored for 1 year. If you select “Remember me”, your login will be stored for 2 weeks. If you log out of your account, your login cookies will be deleted.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and simply indicates the ID of the article you have just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Suggested text: Articles on this site may contain embedded content (for example: videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other sites behaves in the same way as if the user had visited the other site.

These sites may collect data about you, use cookies, embedded third party tracking applications and monitor your interaction with this embedded content. This includes tracking your interaction with embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that site.

With whom we share your data

Suggested text: If you request a password reset, your IP will be included in the reset email.

How long we store your data

Suggested text: If you leave a comment, it and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This way we can automatically identify and approve each subsequent comment instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our site (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights you have regarding your data

Suggested text: 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 all the 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 that we are required to keep for administrative, legal and security purposes.

Where your data is sent
