Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect only the data you choose to enter in comments and contact forms, for purposes of operating the site and communicating back to you about your concerns.


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.

Contact forms

If you fill in our Contact form, the information you enter there will be stored on the site for a limited time, until it’s dealt with — not more than a month. It may be retained indefinitely in the administrator’s personal mail file if she finds it amusing, but will not be shared unless it’s really amusing.

We use information submitted in Contact forms only to answer you — not, for instance, for marketing or profiling.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name and email address 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. This information is stored on your computer and you can delete it any time.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We may employ Google Analytics to collect anonymous statistics about site visitors. This communicates information about your page requests to Google, where they might match it up to information they have about your visits to other sites. If you wish to opt out of this tracking, Google provides a browser plugin:

reCAPTCHA Integration

This site uses Google’s reCAPTCHA system to block spam

Security tracking

This site uses security software that, if it determines you’re trying to break into the site, may post your IP address to a shared hacker IP blacklist (as well as storing it on this server for a few days, to block further hacking attempts).

Share button tracking

This site employs “Social share” buttons that collect tracking data about visit to the site — that you were here, and what pages you visited — and report this information back to the providers of the share buttons. You can avoid this information sharing by settings in your browser privacy options — which settings depend on your browser and version. If you do this, the “share” buttons will be hidden. We’re looking for a better option.

Who we share your data with

Except as noted elsewhere in this document, no information about you is shared with third parties.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. Otherwise, no information is retained on site over one month (as noted elsewhere), though Contact form submissions are by default treated as personal email to the site administrator, and may be stored indefinitely in their mail file unless you request otherwise.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments or submitted a Contact form, you can request to receive a copy of the personal data we have about you. 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 and Contact forms may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Specifically, we have implemented reCAPTCHA on this site. Your use of reCAPTCHA is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Your contact information

If you have any questions or privacy-specific concerns, you may use the Contact form on this site to communicate with us.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Any website breaches, when detected, will be dealt with promptly and pose minimal risk from the minimum amount of information collected. We do not receive third party data on this site. We do no automated decision-making or profiling with the information posted in comments on this site.
