What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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


If you upload images to the website, you 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.

Contact forms

When you send us email, we read it. Sorry, but that’s how email works. We suggest that if you don’t want us to read things you write, you refrain from sending it to us. All email go to our Gmail account, and if you’d like us to delete it in the future, you’ll have to email (gasp!) us again to ask for it to de deleted.


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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

Don’t worry, users won’t be able to log in, so you can safely ignore this paragraph. That said: 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.

Don’t worry, users won’t be able to edit or publish articles, so you can safely ignore this paragraph. That said: if you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles and pages 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.


We use Google Analytics.

How long we retain your data

We comply with Google’s storage policies, unless you tell us to delete your data. In which case, we will.

If you leave a comment, the comment 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.

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

You have the right to request your data deleted, and we will if you want to. Keep in mind that if you ask us to delete data relating to stuff like ticket orders, we’ll have to comply and you’ll have given us money but can’t come to the party, sorry.

Don’t worry, users won’t be able to create accounts, or edit or publish articles, so you can safely ignore this paragraph. That said: 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

To Google, and to Akismet anti-spam.

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

Your contact information

You can email us at [email protected] that google email (sorry, spam bots are horrible).

What third parties we receive data from

Stripe. They process your order. We never see your credit card number or anything like that. They just send us a notification if your order goes through okay and your email and name.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

None. We’re all humans.. except the Akismet anti-spam of course.
