An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) is provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using Gravatar. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
When you leave a comment, the content of your comment is sent to this site’s owner’s email address.
By reviewing webserver logs, we have the ability to correlate your IP address with any information you provide to us, including your username, comments, media, or any other information.
If you submit content through this website’s contact form, your IP address, user agent, name, email address, and message will be submitted to Akismet for the sole purpose of spam checking. Your submission is stored in our database indefinitely and emailed to the site owner. This email will contain your IP address, timestamp, name, email address, and message. Your comment, comment metadata, IP address, and user agent will be synced with wordpress.com, who is unaffiliated with this website.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
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.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
Without any involvement or awareness on our part, our web hosting provider may be able to track your interaction with our website by your IP address. It may be possible to identify you through your IP address.
Upon receipt of a relevant and lawful order by a US court, we may share some or all of your data with the third parties (including law enforcement agencies) as detailed in the court order.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata (including the time and date you submitted the comment, your IP address, your email address, and the contents of your comment) are retained in our database indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you send a message through the contact form, the message, email address, and name you provide, along with your IP address, time and date, and message metadata, will be emailed to the site owner’s personal email address and retained indefinitely.
Any media uploaded to this site is stored on our server indefinitely.
If you register for an account on this site, we also store the personal information you provide in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information (except for their username) at any time. This site’s administrators can also see and edit that information.
This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
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.
