What personal data I collect and why I collect it
When visitors leave comments on my blog, the data is shown in the comments form, and also their IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment on my blog, 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.
Users may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies, by my blog, by using a corresponding setting of your internet browser and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long do I retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Where I send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
