What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data called (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact form
The website Contact Form is sent by email to the site administrator. That email will contain your IP address. You will also have been required to include your email address so a reply can be sent. The site administrator may retain that email indefinitely, unless you request it be deleted.

When you register for an account on this website, you become eligible to post in the forum. Only the site administrator knows your registration email address and login username. Your IP address is also recorded.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site and posts in the forum 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.

Anonymous information about you may be sent to third party sites such as Google Analytics. Some plugins installed on this site may also collect anonymous information to monitor how their plugin is being used. The site administrator has not installed any plugins that have been supplied outside of the WordPress plugin repository, which constantly checks plugins for malicious behaviour.

Who we share your data with
None of your personal data which can identify you is shared with, sold to, or otherwise disclosed to a third party. Site backups are stored on a password protected computer.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment or make a post in the forum, the content 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.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). The site administrator can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, 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.

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information
Your personal details are only ever stored on the website itself. This does not include information from contact forms, as mentioned above.
