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.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.

It records information such as what website you came from to get here, how long you stay on this website, what kind of computer you’re using, and other information.

The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to this site and what content they’re reading. We use this information to improve the website.

No personally identifying data is collected. For more information, see Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Affiliate links

The posts on this website may use affiliate links to other website. This provides some additional income to help run the website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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

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.
