We Are not Evil.
Effective August 11, 2023
When you use our services, you’re trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility and work hard to protect your information and put you in control.
Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We don’t collect any personal data. Only e-mail address and IP address.
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.
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.
Communication on the web takes place securely via TLS. It runs on our communication platform. Your email is not being shown publicly to other users.
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.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
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.
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. The maximum IP address is sent there, we do not send any sensitive data anywhere.
Your contact information
We do not require anything except your email. What you name here is up to you and it doesn’t have to be a real name.
How we protect your data
Via TIER 4 standard and via TLS and by encrypting passwords.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We will contact the relevant authorities immediately in accordance with the law. We have TIER 4 standard security.
What third parties we receive data from
From GEO IP and from internet search engines.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We don’t make any profiling by user data.
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
If we fundamentally change these conditions, we will let you know by email and we will need additional consent.
