If you upload images to the web, you should avoid uploading images with location data (GPS EXIF) included. Website visitors can download and extract any location data from the images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you can choose to have your name, email and web address saved in cookies. This is for your convenience, so you don't have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and connect to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

Who we share your data with
How long we keep your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are preserved indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve successive comments automatically, rather than keeping them in a moderation queue.
Of the users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except that they cannot change their user name). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account or have left comments on this website, you can request to receive an export file of the personal data we have about you, including any data you have provided. You may also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include any data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be reviewed by an automated spam detection service.
