What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We offer contact form(s) on this site to make contacting us easier. By using one of our contact forms, all data you enter, along with additional meta-data(e.g. IP), will be stored by us. We may also share your request with a third party(e.g. to forward a query to a third party more capable of answering).
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.
This website makes use of a few analytics services which track your use of this site(e.g. what pages you visit, who sent you here, etc.). These analytics allow us to better understand how the website is being used. Additionally, we collect standard server logs, which may include potentially personally identifiable information(e.g. your IP address). Here’s an example of a server log entry:
ip.add.re.ss - - [11/Dec/2018:08:31:50 -0600] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 9728 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS x86_64 11021.81.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.110 Safari/537.36"
DNT: We currently do not honor Do Not Track requests, and all data will continue to be collected as if you didn’t have it enabled.
Who we share your data with
With the exception of the analytics services we utilize, no data is shared with a third party in an automated fashion. However, we may share non-personally identifiable information to allow us to do such things as list the most popular page(s) of our site.
How long we retain your data
Most of the information you(e.g. email address), or your browser provides(e.g. OS) will be stored indefinitely.
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.
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
Relevant data is only to sent to our analytics providers, or services which help us understand the collected analytics(e.g. WordPress plugins). We do not share these analytics with any additional third party unless we believe, in our sole discretion, for it to be necessary.

You can contact us by use of our contact form, or via email. Please understand that we cannot, and do not, provide any guarantee for response times. That being said, we usually make an effort to respond as quickly as possible.
How we protect your data
We take your personal information seriously, and therefore have many precautions in place to prevent the unauthorized access to your information. For example, we use strong administrator passwords, and use TLS encryption(i.e. HTTPS) on our website.
