Personal data we collect on this site and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the blog we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help detect spam.

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.

Embedded content from other websites

Pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, reviews, articles, etc.). 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

  • Found the site in the first place (i.e. a referring link, or a search term)
  • What pages are visited and for how long
  • What device and web browser is used
  • Where the visitor is located, via their IP address

This data is collected for the purpose of understanding how visitors find and use this website and which pages are popular, and to determine how to improve the website over time. The data collected is never shared, sold, or disclosed and cannot be used to identify you personally by name.
