What personal data is collected and why it is collected

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site the data shown in the comments form is collected, along with 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

If you use the site contact form, any data you share through it will be transmitted to our email account, which will be held either by the site host or Gmail. You should never share passwords or other data you wouldn’t share publicly through this method. Any data submitted through a contact form will be used only to respond to you and will never be used for marketing purposes or shared with third parties.

Cookies

If you leave a comment 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 login page, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Akismet Anti-Spam

Akismet collects information about visitors who comment on sites that use the Akismet anti-spam service. The information they collect depends on how Akismet is set up for the site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Analytics

Google Analytics is used to track social shares made on this website. Google automatically collects and stores certain information in their server logs which includes device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL, cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Google Account, in accordance with their data privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy. Google may also transmit this information to third parties where required by law.  Google will not associate your IP address with any other data they collect.  You can download an app to opt out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Patreon features

In order to enable you to use this website with Patreon services, we save certain functionally important Patreon information about you in this website if you log in with Patreon. 

These include your Patreon user id, Patreon username, your first, last names and your vanity name. Additionally, the id of your campaign at Patreon and your campaign’s Patreon URL are also saved. 

If you request that your data be deleted from this website, this data will also be deleted and Patreon functionality will not work. You would need to register on this website and log in to this website with Patreon again in order to re-populate this data and have Patreon functionality working again.

ReCAPTCHA

ReCAPTCHA works by collecting hardware and software information, such as device and application data, and sending these data to Google for analysis. The information collected in connection with your use of the service will be used for improving reCAPTCHA and for general security purposes. It will not be used for personalised advertising by Google.

Who your data is shared with

As noted above, your data is shared with Google Analytics, and only for the purposes of analysing site usage.  Any comments you leave will be automatically passed through an automated anti-spam filter.  Any social media actions will be dealt with by the social media agency in question.

How long your data is retained

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

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments on this site you can request to receive an exported file of your personal data, if any, including any data you have provided. You can also request the erasure of any personal data held. This does not include any data the law obliges sites to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.  As noted above, some data will be shared with Google Analytics; you can opt out here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
