What personal data are collected and why


When visitors leave comments on the website, the data on the comment form as well as the IP address and the browser user agent are stored to assist with spam detection.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also known as a hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service to verify that it is being used. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


When uploading images to the site, you should avoid uploading images with embedded geolocation data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract geolocation data from images on the website.

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

Data storage periods

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are saved indefinitely. This is so that it is possible to automatically recognise and approve any subsequent comments, rather than placing them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we store the personal information provided in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (but they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your rights over your data

If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request an export file of your personal data that we hold, including any personal data that you have provided. You can also request that the saved data be deleted. This does not include any personal data that is required to be kept for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where your data are sent

Comments by visitors may be verified by an automatic spam detection service.
