Proposed text: Proposed text: If a visitor leaves a comment on the website, we collect the data provided in the comment form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user-agent data, for the purpose of spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (“hash”) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media Files:

Proposed text: If you are a registered user and upload photos to the website, you may want to avoid uploading images with EXIF metadata, as they may contain GPS location data. Visitors can extract this information by downloading images from the site.


Proposed text: If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account on our site and you log in, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser supports cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When logging into your account, we also set several cookies with login data and screen display settings. Login cookies are stored for two days, and screen display cookies are stored for one year. If you select the “Remember Me” option, login data will be saved for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

When editing or publishing an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. It does not contain personal data, only the ID of the edited post, and expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites:

Proposed text: Articles on this site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited another website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with:

Proposed text: Proposed text: If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the password reset email.

How long we retain your data:

Proposed text: If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is done to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we 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 modify this 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:
