If ever you post graphics to the site, you should avoid uploading graphics with embedded location details (EXIF, GPS) included. Site visitors are able to download and extract any location details from graphics on the site.

Who we share your data with

The length of time we keep your data for

If you make a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This allows us to recognise and authorise any subsequent comments automatically as opposed to placing them in a moderation queue.

For guests that create an account on our site (if any), we hold the personal information provided in their user profile. Users can view, modify, or delete their personal information at any time (except for editing their username). Site administrators are also able to access and modify that data.

What rights you have over your records

If you hold an account on this website, or have left comments, you are able to request to receive an exported file containing the personal data we keep about you, including any details you have provided to us. You are also able to request that we remove any personal data we keep about you. This will not include any data we are required to maintain for administrative, legal, or security applications.

Where we send your data

Comments may be checked by an automated spam detection service.
