What Personal Data Does This Website Collect and Why?


When visitors leave comments on the site, the information requested on the comments form is collected.  In addition, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam with detection also are collected.

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 your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

A third-party plug is used in the comment field.  Read the Heateor privacy policy here:


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.

Contact forms

Website contact forms collect all information entered into the form.  This information is retained only long enough to answer the visitor’s inquiry.  Visitor information is not used or sold for marketing purposes


If you leave a comment on the site, you may be prompted to opt-in to website cookies and to save your name and email address. This is 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.

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