What personal data we collect and why we collect them


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

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public only in the context of your comment.

For live comments, we use WpDiscuz. Their privacy policy is available here: https://gvectors.com/privacy-policy/

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.

We use Google Analytics to generate site attendance statistics. Their privacy policy is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

How long do 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 the Com&You platform (via http://www.comnyou.net/en/), 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.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of your personal data we hold on to, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold on to. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where do we send your data?

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