Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is here for legal reasons, but it could be abbreviated to the following:
Your data and privacy are treated exactly as I would expect mine to be treated on any website.  Whatever data is collected is done anonymously, for purely analytical reasons, whatever information you choose to submit is seen only be me, and treated confidentially.

Alas, as you (probably) don’t know me personally, let’s have the formal version in place as well.

What personal data gets collected and why


When visitors leave comments on the site  the data shown in the comments form is collected, 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 Gravatar profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

The information submitted via the contact form is sent  directly to the site owner, and not stored in any database.


If you leave a comment on this 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, 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, several cookies are automatically set up in order 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.


This site uses a general statistics plug-in called StatCounter (the free version) in order to collect anonymous analytics data.

Data sharing

None of the submitted data gets shared with any third party.

How long we your data is retained

If you leave a comment or write a guestbook entry, 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 the website (if any), the personal information they provide is stored 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.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments get checked through a basic version of “Akismet”, an automated spam detection service, used by millions. You can review their privacy policy here.

What rights you have over your data

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.
