Use of the personal data collected
When you leave a comment on our website, the data entered in the comments form, as well as your IP address and your browser’s user agent, are collected to help us detect unwanted comments.
An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to determine whether you use it. The privacy clauses of the Gravatar service are available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been validated, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.
If you are a registered user and you upload images to the website, we advise you not to upload images containing EXIF data with GPS coordinates. Visitors to your website can download and extract location data from these images.
If you leave a comment on our website, you will be asked whether you agree for your name, email address and website to be stored in cookies. This is solely for your convenience, so you will not have to enter this information again if you leave another comment later. These cookies will expire after one year.
If you have an account and you log in to the site, a temporary cookie will be created to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain personal data and will be automatically deleted when your browser is closed.
When you log in, we will implement a number of cookies to save your login information and screen preferences. The lifetime of a login cookie is two days; that of a screen options cookie is one year. If you tick “Remember me”, your login cookie will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be removed.
If you edit or publish a post, an additional cookie will be set in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data. It simply indicates the ID of the post you have just edited. It expires after one day.
Embedded content from other sites
The articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles). Content embedded from other sites behaves in the same way as if the visitor was on the other site.

Use and sharing of your personal data
Data storage times
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be stored indefinitely. This enables future comments to be automatically recognised and approved instead of remaining in the moderation queue.
For users who register on our website (when this is possible), we also store the personal data provided in their profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information (except for their user name) at any time. The website’s managers can also view and edit this information.
Your rights over your data
If you have an account, or if you have left comments on the site, you can ask to receive a file containing all of your personal data that we have, including those you have provided to us. You can also request that your personal data be deleted. This does not take into account data stored for administrative or legal purposes or for security reasons.
Sharing of your personal data
Visitors’ comments can be verified by an automated service for detecting unwanted comments.
