What personal data is collected and why its collected

I personally have no interest in your data, however it gets processed when you interact with the site. Collecting of data only extends as far any comments or registration data you might submit. I use Google Analystics and Jetpack to see how many people visit and what they look at, I don’t store that data. See below re Analystics.


When visitors leave comments on the site WordPress collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log 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 includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I use Google Analystics and JetPack Stats, these are automated systems that allow me to see how many visitors are coming to my site and what they are looking at. In the process of doing this they may record other information about your browser and similar technical details. You can read their related privacy policies here:

Who I share your data with

Your data is only shared with companies that facilitate the operation of my site, Jetpack, Gravatar and Google Analystics. Although if you post a particularly positive comment I may use the wording to promote the site.

I perform regular cloud backups of my blog so data you’ve submitted in comments or registration may be included in a backup stored on DropBox servers.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

I perform regular cloud backups of my blog so data you’ve submitted in comments or registration may be included in a backup stored on DropBox servers.

How we protect your data

Comments and any registered user data remain within the WordPress environment and I use relevant security plugins to ensure it’s integrity.

What third parties we receive data from

To my knowledge the only information I receive from third parties is analystics data once it has been processed by Google and Jetpack.
