What contact information we collect and why we collect them:
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the information that appears in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and user agent string to help in detecting junk messages.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images where EXIF data includes data from GPS localization. Visitors to the site can download and access all location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our website, you can choose to save your name, email address and website address in cookie files. This is for your convenience in order for you not to have to fill in these details again the next time you write a comment. These cookie-files are saved for 12 months.
If you have an account and log in to this site, we will create a temporary cookie file to check if your browser accepts cookie files. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and disappears when you close your browser.
In addition, when you log in, we will create multiple cookie files to store information about your login and your choices for designing screen layout. Login cookie files are valid for two days and layout choices cookie files are valid for 12 months. If you check “Remember Me”, your cookie will remain for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie files will be deleted.
Embedded content from other sites
Articles on this site may contain embedded content (such as videos, pictures, articles, and so on.) Embedded content from other sites behaves just as if the visitor has visited the other site.
These websites may collect data about you, use cookie files, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interactions with said embedded content, including tracking your interactions with this embedded content if you have an account and are logged into the site in question.
How long we keep your data:
If you write a comment, the comment and its metadata will be saved without a time limit. The reason for this is that we need to be able to find and approve follow-up comments automatically and not put them to the queue for review.
For users who register on our website, we also 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 over your data:
If you have an account or have posted any comments on this website, you may request an export file with the personal information we have about you, including any information you have provided to us. You may also request that we remove any personal information we have about you. This does not include any information that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security purposes.
