What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We do not collect or retain any personal data. If you submit a question or comment on this website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your message, we will respond if appropriate.

If you log in to enter comments or questions, 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. 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.

This website collects user data to support analytics which is used to improve website performance. We use Google Analytics, Yoast SEO and Akismet Anti-Spam WordPress plugins to collect and analyze data. Our web hosting account, IONOS, may also collect some anonymous analytics data from time to time.

Who we share your data with
We do not share any personal data with anyone. However, visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment or question, your message and its metadata are retained indefinitely. Thus, we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments or questions automatically, instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments or questions, you may request to receive a download of any of your personal data that we have on file. You may also request that we erase all of your personal data. This deletion would not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
