What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Submitting a contact form will both send us an email and leave a record of your email. If you wish to have record deleted, just let us know. We can remove it within two working days.
Subscribing to this website will add your email, once you confirm your subscription, to our email service. You may opt out at any time.
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.

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.
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). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

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.

GDPR and Our Plugins
Our plugins and add-ons are compatible with GDPR. Below are the common questions related to GDPR.
Do your plugins track any data?
We do not track any user data via our plugins. But if our plugin depends on any third-party service, they might track user data. This can happen in the following two ways:
1. Embedded Widgets
Some of our plugins have features to integrate embedded widgets as is, from third-party services (like Facebook Like, Facebook Recommend, Twitter Tweet official buttons).
2. Third-party APIs/Connections
Our plugins send requests to third-party APIs via website visitor’s web browsers to fetch information (like social shares, social comment count). This request made by a web browser may include an IP address, which can then be seen by the third party that it’s being requested from. This API request doesn’t include any personal data of the website user other than the IP address.
Where is the data collected by your plugins stored?
Data fetched by plugins is not stored on their servers, neither is that data shared with any third party. Plugins run absolutely on our website and store the data in the database of our website.
Do your plugins load any external scripts?
As mentioned before, our plugins run absolutely from your website and hence load the scripts too from your website with exception of third-party embedded widgets (like Facebook Like/Recommend official button, Twitter tweet official button, Facebook Comments) which require our plugin to load scripts from the servers of relevant service.
