Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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

We do not use Gravatar as some comment sites do.


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. We do not have a system implemented to strip EXIF from your uploaded media.

Contact forms

When you fill out the contact forms on the contact page, your email, comment data, name provided, and optional subject line are used to automatically generate an email to the site owner address. This email and the data therein are stored as a normal personal email. Consider anything sent through the contact form the same as if it were written as an email to this site’s owner.


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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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

Who we share your data with

No one is given your private data. Site owners do not see your browsing history or track your usage of this site.

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. Administrators cannot see your password but can change it.

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 we send your data

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

Your contact information

If you provide an email address in comment forms or your registered profile, it will be stored as a method of contact in case you need to reset your password or request your data. If your provide your email address in a contact form, it is only stored in the site owner’s personal email inbox, as if you sent a direct email.

Additional information

How we protect your data

The site forces the use of HTTPS SSL when visited in a browser to encrypt the user’s experience. Any stored private data such as passwords are kept cryptographically secured and hashed in a database. The communication between the server and the database is also cryptographically secured. Since no security is perfect, it is still recommended that users choose a different password for this site than all others in case of a breach or lost data.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If private information is lost or stolen, including encrypted passwords, a report will be made to the authorities in the US and you will be notified by your contact email if you have one on file.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not have advertising partners. Twitter feeds are sent to the site’s feed bar. Your Twitter data will only appear here if you are retweeted by our site account. Data about users logged into our Discord chat server is sent to the site’s Discord feed. If you are logged into the Discord chat, your username and online status will appear here.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

All comments are processed using an automated spam filter which may cause them not to appear or to be rejected upon posting. You do not have the right to approve these comments for display but you do have the right to request your approved comments be removed and deleted from the site.
