What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site 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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Cookies are also used by Google Analytics and Google AdSense, both of which are used on the website (see ‘Analytics’ and ‘Advertising’ sections below for more info).

Don’t want to use cookies?

We advise that you leave cookies enabled whilst visiting, otherwise you may find that parts of our site no longer work, including accessing your member profile and downloading our software, mappings, etc.

However, if you choose, you can block all cookies by altering the settings in your web browser (refer to your browser’s help section). Alternatively, you could just block third party cookies (Google Analytics) which will not impact your browsing experience.

Other information about cookies

We have published this Cookie Policy as part of our work to implement Article 5 (3) of the e-Privacy Directive which came into force on 25th May 2011.

For more information on how cookies work and can be managed, please refer to The Interactive Advertising Bureau’s guide at www.allaboutcookies.org.

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.

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.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to monitor user visits and to improve the functionality and experience of the website. Google Analytics uses cookies, and information about their use can be found here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage

Sales

All sales are handled through the third party payment provider, e-junkie. If you buy from us, all user and payment information is handled by e-junkie. Their privacy policy can be found here: https://www.e-junkie.com/wiki/privacy

Advertising

We use Google AdSense to display ads for third parties which may be relevant to the user.

  • Google uses cookies to serve ads based on a user’s previous visits to this website or other websites.
  • Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.

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.

For users that register on our website, 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, 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. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
