This website collects some personal data, but it’s strictly to make the website work, and I don’t do anything creepy with it.
If you choose to use the comment form, it will save your name and e-mail to the database, and also your 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. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
I use a privacy-respecting website statistics service called Plausible. It is cookie-free and non-creepy.
Plausible collects information about visitors such as your location (using your anonymised IP address), how you found the website (search engine, social media, links on other websites, etc), search queries, your device, browser, OS, etc.
I use certain cookies on this site, to make the website work.
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.
How long your data is kept
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.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data my website holds about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that I erase your personal data.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service. That’s it.
