When you visit this website, general information is automatically collected. This could include your browser type, operating system, ISP domain name, IP address, and similar data. We collect this for several reasons:
- To ensure the website connects smoothly
- To make your user experience as seamless as possible
- To evaluate system security and stability
- For other administrative purposes
We don’t use this data to identify you personally; it’s mostly for statistical evaluation and technical optimization.
Data Storage Duration
If you leave a comment, it’s stored indefinitely along with any metadata. This helps us automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments, rather than keeping them in a moderation queue. Registered users can always view, modify, or delete their personal information (except they can’t change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an export of your personal data. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we have stored about you, except for what we’re required to keep for legal, administrative, or security reasons.
Visitor comments may be checked by an automated spam detection service.
If you’re uploading photos to this website, avoid using photos with EXIF-GPS location data. Visitors can download photos from this website and extract this location data.
The data you enter is stored for individual communication with you. Providing a valid email address and your name is required for this.
If you leave a comment, you may opt to save your name, email, and website in cookies, which will last for a year. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.
