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.
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.
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.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we 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.

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.
This helps us see what the most popular items on the site are, where our visitors are located and other site optimisation related functions.
- Google Analytics – Site visitor measurement
- Cloudflare – Site speed and security optimisation
- OneSignal – To allow us to offer push notifications when new articles are published
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.
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.
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 to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you do not have an account, we do not actively hold any data – with the exception of IP address or potentially other device or browser version information.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. IP addresses and other device-related information may also be transferred for the purposes of keeping track of affiliate referrals. Visitors to the site will be served a version of the site via Cloudflare’s automatic routing network.
Personal data is never shared – with the exception of IP address, if the visitor leaves the site via an affiliate link, for the purpose of accurate sales tracking.
What data breach procedures we have in place:
In the unlikely event of a data breach, any affected users will be informed immediately upon discovery and rectification of the breach.
