Information we collect and why we collect it


We do not collect any personal information about you when you use our Services, except under the following conditions:

  • When visitors leave comments on the articles we collect the data shown in the comments form, you can choose to enter your name and email address along with the comment. This data is automatically stored by our CMS (content management system).
  • 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.

However, we do not use this data, or sell it to our partners and/or third parties.


If you leave a comment on our website 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.


We use Google Analytics to analyse the traffic on our website. This allows us to determine how people are using the website and improve it. Google Analytics may collect the following information when you visit our website, read an article, or leave a comment:

  • Device information: Google Analytics collects information about the device you use to access our Services, including the class of the device (smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc), operating system, and your city-level geographical location.
  • Behavioural information: Google Analytics collects information about the pages visited by visitors on our website, including the time spent on a page, as well as navigational behaviour through the website. However, this information is aggregated, and can’t be used to identify you, individually.


We may use third-party advertising companies, such as Google Adsense to serve ads when you visit our website. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visits to our websites and/or other websites on the Internet.

You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting the My Ad Centre. You can also opt-out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. images, videos, 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.

Data protection and security

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.
