What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When you leave a comment on the website, we collect the data shown in the comments form and also your IP address and browser user agent string to aid in preventing spam.


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.


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

Your email address is shared with Mailgun to deliver emails to you. Mailgun’s Privacy Policy is available here:

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, 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 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

Your data is sent to Dropbox when off-site backups are created. All backups are encrypted locally before being uploaded. Dropbox’s privacy policy is available here:

How we protect your data

All connections to our infrastructure go through a VPN tunnel with the OpenVPN protocol using AES-256-GCM encryption before reaching the main web server. All connections to the website are encrypted using the TLSv1.2 protocol with the “TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384” cipher suite. No TLS termination occurs at the VPN server edge allowing for the certificate private keys to remain in physical control.

Website data is stored on SSDs encrypted with AES-256-XTS. Backups are stored on hard drives encrypted with AES-256-XTS. Off-site backups are locally encrypted with AES-256-CTR before being uploaded to Dropbox using the TLSv1.2 protocol.

Emails forwarded from the website to Mailgun are always encrypted using the TLSv1.2 protocol. Emails forwarded from Mailgun to receiving servers are enforced to be sent with a TLS connection. If a receiving server does not support TLS, then the email is not delivered.

Server software is updated at least once every two weeks. WordPress is updated within a couple days of a new release.
