Which personal data we collect and why
If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, e-mail address and your site to cookies. These are for your own convenience, so you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you have an account and log in to the site, we will create a draft cookie to determine if the browser accepts cookies. The cookie does not contain personal information and is deleted when you close your browser. When you sign in, we will also create several cookies to save your login information and screen options. Entry cookies last for two days and display screen cookies last for one year. If you select ‘Remember me’, your connection will stay for two weeks. If you sign out of your account, the login cookies will be removed. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include personal information and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

For how long we maintain your data
If you leave a comment, its comment and metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so that we can automatically recognize and approve the comments that follow instead of keeping them in a queue of coordination. For users who sign up on our site, we also store the personal data they enter in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal data at any time (except to be able to change their username). Administrators of this site may also view and process this information.
What rights do you have in your data
If you have an account on this site or you have left comments, you may request to receive an export record of personal data we hold for you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also be asked to delete the personal data we hold for you. This does not include data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security reasons.
Where will your data be sent
Visitors’ comments may be controlled through an automated junk mail system.
