Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Comments, PII, etc.
We don’t conduct any of the following activities on this website because WE DO NOT WANT your PII (personally identifiable data).
To prevent the collection of your PII:
- We do not allow people to comment on blog posts
- We do not conduct surveys
- We do not have any forms for you to fill in
We specifically do this so you can’t share any of your personal data with us.
If we did collect comments, the following would apply: 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.
If we did allow the uploading of images, the following would apply: 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.
We do not use forms on this website, therefore you can’t share information with us via forms.

Who we share your data with (or if you email us)
We don’t collect you personal data through comments or forms. If you email us:
We will only email you if you contact us first. Our response to your email will be specific to the question you have asked us. In other words, we won’t answer your email with a promotion or advertisement or respond to your email outside of the scope of the original intent. We do not always respond to every email we receive. When we choose to not reply, we delete the email.
Please be aware that we use a 3rd Party email service (Google gmail). Refer to https://cloud.google.com/security/gdpr/ to learn more about Google Cloud Services and GDPR compliance/privacy. When our email correspondence is completed, we delete the emails you have sent to us.
How long we retain your data
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.

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.
