Privacy FAQ

Affiliate Disclosure

This website uses affiliate links which means a small commission is created for any clicks that lead to signups of those products and services. Products are not recommended because they have affiliate opportunities, but they are added so that people who decide to sign up for a product or service can help support the website.

Browsing behavior

This website uses a tool called Plausible, which offers anonymized user behavior tracking. It helps to work out where people came from, what they're looking at, and what seems to be working well overall.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies.

These are for your convenience so that you do not have to log in again when you leave another comment.

This website uses Disqus for comments, and it has tracking cookies disabled:

If you visit the subscriber 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.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. YouTube videos, images, articles, Twitter etc.).

You can see YouTube's data policy here:

How YouTube Protects Data Privacy - How YouTube Works
We take our approach to privacy seriously. We work hard to protect your information and put you in control by providing powerful privacy settings.

Where possible, this website tries to remember to use the privacy-enhanced mode when embedding videos.

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

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

The data is processed via MailGun.

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 your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service through Disqus.
