Privacy Policy

Scope of This Notice

This Privacy Statement is intended to describe this web site’s privacy
practices and provide information about the choices you have regarding the ways
in which information collected by this web site is used and disclosed.

Commitment to Privacy

At the web site, your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, We have provided this Statement explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected, used and disclosed.

This website uses Transport Layer Security (TLS), which encrypts data to and from this website.

Collected Information

This Privacy Statement applies to all information collected by or submitted to, including personal data. “Personal data” is data that can
be used to identify an individual.

Serving this Website and Creation of Server Logs

This web server logs your interaction with the site in something called a log
file. Standard web server log files contain basic information like which pages were viewed, at what time, information about the browser and operating system used, the “referring” website, and the IP address of the visitor.
We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in our server’s statistical reports.
We make no effort to identify IP addresses with individual visitors.


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.


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.

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.

How long we retain your data

Server logs are deleted after 7 days.

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.

This data and content may include but is not limited to email, comments, photos, and other downloadable artifacts.
  • As required by law (such as responding to a valid subpoena, warrant, audit, or agency action, or to prevent fraud).
