Privacy Policy

This site and your data

I am interested in your opinion, not your data, and would prefer not to have any of it. However, this site runs on WordPress, which is as private as it’s worst plugin, and there are my proxy and firewall, both of which log abusing IP addresses, failed logons and remote execution commands. I see you, log4j.

Other than that, I don’t even keep a visitor count.

When you use the feedback form on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Askimet does the same; read their privacy policy here.

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.

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 I share your data with

I will not share your data with anyone.

How long I retain your data

If you use the feedback form, 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.

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.
