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.
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.
We use Google Analytics and other software to help us better understand and serve our visitors. These programs collect information such as:
- Time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the website
- Referring site details (such as the URI a user came through to arrive at this site)
- Type of web browser
- Type of operating system (OS)
- Network location and IP address.
How long we retain your data
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.
Analytical information may be retained indefinitely.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell your information, personal or otherwise, to any other person or entity. We do not share any of your information except the analytical data described above.
