My website address is:

What personal data I collect and why I collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site I 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 comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If a visitor upload images to the website, he 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 a visitor leave a comment on my site he may opt-in to saving his name, email address and website in cookies. These are for their convenience so that he does not have to fill in details again when he leaves another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If a visitor visit my login page, I will set a temporary cookie to determine if hsi browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when he closes his browser.

When a visitor log in, I will also set up several cookies to save his login information and his screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If he selects « Remember Me », his login will persist for two weeks. If he log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If a visitor edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in his browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article he 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 visitor, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor his interaction with that embedded content, including tracking his interaction with the embedded content if he has an account and is logged in to that website.


I use Google Analytics on Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about visitors:

  • What website visitor came from to get here.
  • How long visitor stay for.
  • What kind of computer visitor is using…

The tracking information allows me to better understand the kind of people who come to my site and what content they’re reading. This allows me to make better decisions about design and writing.

Occasionally, I will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.

All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Who I share visitor’s data with

I does not share any personal data with anyone.

How long I retain visitor’s data

If a visitor leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on my website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in his 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 visitors have over their data

If a visitor has an account on this site, or have left comments, he can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about him, including any data he has provided to me. He can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about him. This does not include any data I are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where I send visitor’s data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
