Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. This includes any embedded advertising that is displayed on this site.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data sharing

Selling your information

This site does not sell user information to third parties. In fact, this site frowns upon such practices.

Data retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the blog can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
