What personal data is collected
If you submit a comment on a blog post, data from the form is saved (along with your name and email address, if you include it). Your computer’s IP address and browser user agent string are collected to detect potential spam.
Relevant contact data is collected, if you include it, so I can respond appropriately.
If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in the browser cookie. This is 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.
Embedded content from other websites
Blog posts may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
This website uses Google Analytics and Quantcast to provide anonymous and aggregate information on visitor behavior. Those websites may add cookies to your computer.
How long your data is retained
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
