What personal information we collect and why


When site visitors post comments on the site we collect the details found within the comment, and the person’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam recognition.

An anonymised string formulated from your e-mail address (referred to as a hash) may be given to partner services to check if you use them. Upon approval of your post, your profile image is available to the public in the context of your comment.


Whenever you submit photos to the site, we recommend to avoid submitting pictures with embedded location data (EXIF, GPS) included. Site guests can save and extract any location information from photos on the site.

Contact Forms


If you make a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. These are for your ease of use in order that you do not need to write your details once again when you leave more comments. These cookies will remain for one year.

Should you have an account and log in to this website, we create a temporary cookie to identify that your internet browser accepts cookies. This cookie incorporates no personal details and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we also set up cookies to save your login details and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and display selections cookies are removed after one year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login cookies will remain for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted.

Embedded material from external sites

Articles on this site can include embedded content (e.g. movies, images, articles, etc.).
Embedded material from third party sites behaves in the same way as if the guest has browsed the third party web page.

These sites may receive data about you, use cookies, embed further third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that content, including monitoring your interaction with the embedded material if you have a profile and have logged in to that site.


Who we share your details with

How long we retain your information for

If you submit a comment, the content and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so we are able to recognise and authorise any further comments instantly rather than keeping them in a moderation queue.

For visitors that register an account on our site (if any), we hold the personal details given in their details. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal details at any time (except they can not change their username). Website admins can also view and modify this data.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have made comments, you can request to be provided with an exported file of the personal records we hold about you, including any data you have supplied to us. You can also ask that we remove any personal information we keep about you. This does not include any information we are required to maintain for administrative, legal, or security applications.

Where we send your details

Comments may be checked by an automated spam diagnosis program.
