Who we are
What personal data that may be collected and why
(referenced in the following sections)
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.
Users and Comments
We no longer implement a User login system on the site. Therefore no related information is collected in this regard. No User login cookies. Any previous User login data has been permanently deleted from the server database.
We no longer implement a Comment system on the site. Therefore no related information is collected in this regard. No Commenter cookies. Whenever the Comment system is enabled, and when visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address assigned to them at the time of leaving the comments, and the user agent strings of the browsers they used – to help spam detection.
Published content and comments are stored indefinitely unless deletion/removal is requested by the original author or commenter.
You may contact me via the ‘Contact me’ link in the footer below. If you do, your email address will obviously be collected as well as the textual information in the body of your message.
All form submissions are run through Akismet for spam detection. We presently utilize (Forminator) from (WPMU DEV), a Wordpress plugin developer for contact form submission. Form submissions are retained in our server database for 90 days, after which all records are deleted.
