Who we are
While commenting on the forum, the forum software may collect your email address, just with the intention of alerting you of any updates in the discussion, you might be interested in.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your email address 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 visit our login page, 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.
The email popup also stores cookies. If you click on “No thanks,” a cookie is saved which persists for 30 days. Thus, you will not receive the email popup for the next 30 days. If you close the popup using the close button on top right, another cookie is saved. This cookie has a validity of 5 days, during which the popup will not appear for you.

Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. The IP address and email address collected while making a comment will be used for the purpose of spam detection and for providing the commenter with any updates or replies to their comment.
This website makes use of services such as Google Analytics and Google AdSense. You may go through their policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. 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
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Services such as Google Analytics and Google AdSense also are able to see visitor data including the IP address and geographical location (not exact). You may go through their policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
