A. What personal data we collect and why we collect it
This website does not share Personal Data with third parties, nor do we store any information about your visit to this blog, other than to analyze and optimize your user experience.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the Personal Data shown in the comments form, and we also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
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.
3. Contact and newsletter sign-up forms
If you submit Personal Data to us through a contact form or through the newsletter sign-up form, we may keep these submissions for customer service purposes indefinitely. However, we do not give the Personal Data submitted through contact forms to third parties for marketing or other purposes.
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 fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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.
You can remove cookies stored in your computer via your browser settings. Alternatively, you can control some third party cookies by using a privacy enhancement platform.

We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. We do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. We do not target children with our services.
If a parent or guardian believes that we have in our database the personally identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
