What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website 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.

Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.

If you use our online store, we use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing our site.


Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on your prior visits to this website and other websites. You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings.


We collect the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). This data is submitted to the Akismet service for the sole purpose of spam checking. The comment and its metadata are stored in the database of the website and retained indefinitely.

To initiate and process comment subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (REQUEST_URI and DOCUMENT_URI). This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.

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 you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Google Analytics

This feature sends page view events (and potentially video play events) over to Google Analytics for consumption. We use the IP anonymization feature of Google Analytics, and we set the data retention period to 14 months, which is the shortest period offered. Please see the Google Privacy Policy for more details.

Login protection

In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.

Data about failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent) are tracked and synced with a third-party service solely for the purpose of preventing fraudulent logins.
