Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

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


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

Contact forms collect data similarly to comment forms.  We collect the data entered into the form, the visitor’s IP address, and the user agent.  This additional data assists in filtering messages sent through the contact forms (as well as comment forms), and helps maintain the site without requiring extra resources.


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.

When you log in, we 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


We may be using analytics to help identify how the website is used, and to help improve the website.

This data is not considered essential to the use of the site, but we have no means to allow you to opt out at this time, but if you block the analytics platform(s) this should not affect the operation of the site.

Who we share your data with

Currently we do not share data with other sources, but information may be shared with our hosting provider, as well as anyone between yourself and our hosting provider, based on the simple processes which these services use.

How long we retain your data

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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Except as required to use the service, and which happens incidental to the use of the service we do not share your contact information with anyone outside of the organization.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We attempt to keep the site secure through the use of secure connections, and through management of our servers, and software in as good a manner as we are capable.

What data breach procedures we have in place

When a data breach is detected, we attempt to contact anyone who may have been impacted.

Our contacting you, may not be an indication of any data leakage, but merely a concern of possibility of your account, or other information being involved in the data breach.

In the event of a data breach, we attempt to fully determine what data was accessed, and how it was accessed, in order to fully inform our customers.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not receive information from third parties which is connected to our users.

We use information from third parties to allow us to more easily process information provided by those users for the purposes of providing services through those third parties.

This information is essential to the operation of the portions of our business which utilize the services of those third parties (such as shipping packages).

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

At this time, we do not have any automated decision making or profiling regarding user data that isn’t part of the service.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

We are unaware of any regulations which go beyond what is stated above, and believe in most cases, what is stated above goes well beyond the disclosure we are required.
