Data collected and cookies used

Comments and related data and cookies, etc.

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.

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.

Comments are checked through an automated spam detection service (Akismet).

The comments module used is as provided by WordPress (and Jetpack and Akismet). You can read the relevant privacy policy here. See their privacy policy

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.


We use Google Analytics to analyze visitor data.  Google analytics is an extremely common way of analyzing site visitor data to improve sites. Analytics can show what pages you view within this site, how you arrived at this site and some basic information about your computer. We use this data to see how to improve content and navigation on the site. Analytics data is NOT used for any individual behavior profiling or for any targeted advertising.

The IP data is anonymized for Google Analytics. Because of this anonymizing, we do not know who you are; just that somebody visited the site. Read the Google Analytics privacy page.

Google Analytics uses cookies. If you wish, you can opt out of analytics: See how to opt out using a browser add-on . Also, you can always delete any existing cookies in any browser (some resources for this are given below).

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone. We do not sell your data to anyone. Your data is not used for any commercial purpose.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments on this site, 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.

Any data available to us is only related to the fact that you visited the site, not who you are. We do not use visitor data for any commercial profiling or sale/ rent purposes.  We also do not use any third party data for any targeted advertising on this site.
