When visitors leave comments on our website, we collect the data provided in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information helps us in spam detection. If you choose to use Gravatar, an anonymized string created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you upload images to our website, please ensure that you do not include embedded location data (EXIF GPS) in the images. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from the images.

5. Data Sharing
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except in the following circumstances:
We may share your personal information with trusted service providers who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, as long as they agree to keep your information confidential.
We may disclose your personal information if we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, enforce our website policies, protect our rights, or ensure the safety of our users or others.
6. Data Retention
If you leave a comment on our website, 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 who 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.
8. Your Rights
If you have an account on our website 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. However, this does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
9. Data Security
We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

Our website may contain links to third-party websites that are not operated or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those third-party websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those websites before providing any personal information.
11. Children’s Privacy
Our website is not intended for individuals under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children.
