What personal data we collect and why we collect it


This site, like every wordpress site in the world, uses cookies to tell which pages a user has visited and to allow various parts of the site to function. We can’t turn cookies off without breaking our own site to comply with yet another mickey-mouse EU law so if you are allergic to cookies, please do not use this website.

When you log in, we will 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 or until you clear your browser cookies. 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.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we store the personal information provided in your user profile.

All registered and logged-in users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).
