Collection and Use of Personal Information

When visitors interact with our website, we collect certain data to enhance user experience and ensure security measures are in place.



When visitors leave comments on the site, we gather the information displayed in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information aids in spam detection and site security.

Additionally, an anonymized string generated from your email address (a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to identify if you use it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy can be found here. After your comment is approved, your profile picture becomes visible to the public alongside your comment.



Should you upload images to the website, we advise against including embedded location data (EXIF GPS) within these images. This data can be extracted by visitors downloading the images from the website.



For convenience, when you leave a comment on our site, you can opt-in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies last for one year and eliminate the need to re-enter your details for future comments.

Upon visiting our login page, a temporary cookie is set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Additionally, when you log in, several cookies are established to retain your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies persist for two days, while screen options cookies last for a year. Choosing “Remember Me” keeps your login active for two weeks. Logging out removes the login cookies.

An extra cookie is saved in your browser when editing or publishing an article, containing no personal data and expiring after 1 day.


Embedded Content

Articles on our site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, or articles) from other websites. This embedded content behaves similarly to if the visitor had visited the other website, potentially collecting data, using cookies, embedding third-party tracking, and monitoring interaction.


Data Sharing

If a password reset is requested, your IP address will be included in the reset email for security purposes.


Data Retention

Comments and their metadata are retained indefinitely to facilitate automatic recognition and approval of subsequent comments.

For registered users, personal information provided in their user profile is stored. All users have access to view, edit, or delete their personal information (except for the username). Website administrators also have access to view and edit this information.


User Rights

Individuals with an account on this site or who have left comments can request an exported file containing the personal data held, as well as request the deletion of their personal data. However, certain data may be retained for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


Data Processing

Visitor comments may undergo automated spam detection checks for security purposes.


Compliance with Canadian and USA Privacy Laws

Our data collection, storage, and processing practices adhere to Canadian and USA privacy laws, ensuring transparency, user rights, and data security.
