What personal data we collect and why we do it


When you leave comments on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact form

When you send questions via WPForms plugin on the FAQ page of our website, we only collect the data shown in the contact form.


If you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Other visitors could download and extract any location data from those images.


If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so that you do not have to fill in their details again the next time you leave a comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your personal data with anyone.


Where we send your data

Your comments and questions may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


How long we retain your data

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

If you have an account on our website, we also store the personal information you provide in your user profile. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information anytime (but you cannot change your username). The website administrator can also see and edit that information.

If you send a question via WPForms, the question itself, your name and email address (if provided) are retained indefinitely. This is so we can keep a record of all the questions received.


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 other data you have provided to us. You can also request to erase any personal data we hold about you, but this doesn’t include any other data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If you want, you can request to receive and/or erase all the questions you have asked via WPForms.

How we protect your data

We and our web-hosting provider take sensible precautions and follow the greatest practices (e.g. security plugins, backups, strong passwords, two-factor authentications, etc.) to ensure your personal informations are not improperly accessed, altered, disclosed, misused or lost.


What third parties we receive data from

We do not receive data from any third parties.


Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy anytime. Every modification will instantly take effect upon its posting on this page. If we make substantial updates to this policy, we will notify you.
