What personal data is collected and why.
When visitors leave comments on the site it collects the data shown in the comments form ie your name and comment, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you use the WordPress Gravatar service then your avatar will be collected and displayed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos on YouTube). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
I have implemented reCaptcha3 on this site.
I was formerly an Amazon Associate. Some very old posts might still have links to Amazon however I have left that program so the links are broken now.
Related to this on the old Blogger site (which most old posts are still located on) I had Google Adsense activated for some years before turning it off once ad blockers became popular. Adsense is not active on this WordPress site so there should be no residual from that.
How long data is retained
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. It forms part of the blog.
What rights do you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request that I erase any personal data. Any request for moderation or removal of content shall be dealt with promptly but no responsibility is accepted for delays.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
