Suggested text: When you leave a comment on our website, the details entered in the comment form, as well as your IP address and your browser’s user agent, are collected to help us identify unwanted comments.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: Once your comment has been checked, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.


Suggested text: If you upload images to the website, we recommend avoiding uploading images containing EXIF data with GPS coordinates. People visiting your website can download and extract location data from these images.


Suggested text: If you leave a comment on our site, you will be asked to save your name, email address and site in cookies. This is only for your convenience so you don’t have to enter this information if you want to leave another comment at a later date. These cookies expire after one year.

If you go to the login page, a temporary cookie will be created to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain any personal data and will be deleted automatically when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will create a number of cookies to store your login information and screen preferences. Login cookies are stored for two days and screen option cookies are stored for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your login cookie will be stored for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be deleted.

When you edit or publish a post, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not include any personal data. It simply indicates the ID of the post that you have just edited. It will expire after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Suggested text: Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles etc.). Content embedded from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor were on that other website.

These websites may collect your personal data, use cookies, embed third-party tracking tools and track your interaction with this embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to their website.

Use and transmission of your personal data

Suggested text: If you ask for your password to be reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long your data will be stored

Suggested text: If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This will automatically recognise and approve subsequent comments instead of leaving them in the queue to be moderated.

For users that register on our website (if applicable), we also store the personal data provided in their profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (apart from their username). Site managers can also view and modify this information.

Your rights in relation to your data

Suggested text: If you have an account or have left comments on the website, you may ask to be sent a file containing all the personal data we have about you, including the data you have provided to us. You can also ask for your personal data to be deleted. This does not include data stored for administrative, legal or security purposes.
