What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When you leave a comment on our site, the data in the comment form, as well as your IP address and your browser user agent are collected to help us detect unwanted comments.
An anonymized chain created from your email address (also called hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using the Gravatar service. The confidentiality clauses of the Gravatar service are available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After validating your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.
If you upload images to the site, we advise you to avoid uploading images containing EXIF GPS coordinate data. People visiting your site can download and extract location data from these images.
If you submit a comment on our site, you will be offered to register your name, email address and website in cookies. It’s only for your convenience so you don’t have to enter this information if you submit another comment later. These cookies expire after one year.
If you go to the login page, a temporary cookie will be created to determine if your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain personal data and will be deleted automatically when your browser closes.
When you log in, we’ll set up a number of cookies to record your login information and screen preferences. The lifespan of a connection cookie is two days, that of a screen option cookie is one year.

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.

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

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.
