An anonymized 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your com­ment, your pro­file pic­ture is vis­i­ble to the pub­lic in the con­text of your com­ment.

MEDIA

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.

CONTACT FORMS
COOKIES

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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.

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).

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.

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising

The Web­site uses Medi­avine to man­age all third-par­ty adver­tis­ing on the Web­site. Medi­avine serves con­tent and adver­tise­ments when you vis­it the Web­site, which may use first and third-par­ty cook­ies. A cook­ie is a small text file which is sent to your com­put­er or mobile device (referred to in this pol­i­cy as a “device”) by the web serv­er so that a web­site can remem­ber some infor­ma­tion about your brows­ing activ­i­ty on the Web­site. The cook­ie may col­lect infor­ma­tion relat­ing to your use of the Web­site, infor­ma­tion about your device such as the device’s IP address and brows­er type, demo­graph­ic data and, if you arrived at the Web­site via a link from a third-par­ty site, the URL of the link­ing page.

First par­ty cook­ies are cre­at­ed by the web­site that you are vis­it­ing. A third-par­ty cook­ie is fre­quent­ly used in behav­ioral adver­tis­ing and ana­lyt­ics and is cre­at­ed by a domain oth­er than the web­site you are vis­it­ing. Third-par­ty cook­ies, tags, pix­els, bea­cons and oth­er sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies (col­lec­tive­ly, “Tags”) may be placed on the Web­site to mon­i­tor inter­ac­tion with adver­tis­ing con­tent and to tar­get and opti­mize adver­tis­ing. Each inter­net brows­er has func­tion­al­i­ty so that you can block both first and third-par­ty cook­ies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” fea­ture of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accept­ing new cook­ies, how to receive noti­fi­ca­tion of new cook­ies, how to dis­able exist­ing cook­ies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more infor­ma­tion about cook­ies and how to dis­able them, you can con­sult the infor­ma­tion at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.

With­out cook­ies you may not be able to take full advan­tage of the Web­site con­tent and fea­tures. Please note that reject­ing cook­ies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you vis­it our Site.

The Web­site may col­lect IP address­es and loca­tion infor­ma­tion to serve per­son­al­ized ads and pass it to Medi­avine. If you would like more infor­ma­tion about this prac­tice and to know your choic­es to opt-in or opt-out of this data col­lec­tion, please vis­it https://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. You may also vis­it https://optout.aboutads.info/#/ and https://optout.networkadvertising.org/# to learn more infor­ma­tion about inter­est-based adver­tis­ing. You may down­load the App­Choic­es app at https://www.aboutads.info/appchoices to opt out in con­nec­tion with mobile apps, or use the plat­form con­trols on your mobile device to opt out.
