We are committed to recognizing and respecting your privacy rights by keeping you informed and processing and protecting your personal data in compliance with applicable law.

We collect this data for necessary and legitimate business reasons. The legal basis for us to collect the data is to be able to provide you with the service you requested or to improve your experience on our website. Similar to most websites, we use a technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our website is used and to be able to offer you a better user experience on our website. A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. This way the website communicates with you (your computer) to make your experience on the website better. The data our cookies collects is not personalized and it may include date or time of your visits, time spent on the website, the viewed webpages and what website you have visited just before ours or right after that. We use third party analytics services providers (“Analytics Services”) to collect information about your use of the services, to get an insight on how our site is being used, in order to know how to improve user experience, what content to create and similar decisions all focused on improving the experience for our visitors. We also use an anti-spam plugin in order to avoid spam comments. This plugin identifies spam-like behavior by checking all comments according to some standard rules and it has access to your comment and your IP address.

If you are a visitor of our website, browsing our website but without having signed up for any newsletter or submitted any personal data, we use cookies to deliver you more quickly the pages you have visited previously so you don’t need to wait longer for the respective page to load.

For instance, you can opt in to save your name, email, website or avatar (if you are a WordPress user) for easier future access to making a comment. These cookies will last for one year. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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.

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.

How long we retain your data:

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is reliable for its intended use and is as accurate and complete as is necessary to carry out the relevant purposes described in this privacy policy. 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.

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.

How we protect your personal information:

We are strongly committed to data security and we take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration or corruption. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, therefore, although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of any data transmitted to our site and any such transmission is at your own risk.
