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 our 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.

Contact and/or support forms
When users submit contact or support forms we collect the data shown in the form. We may also collect the visitor’s IP address to help spam detection. We use this information to respond to questions/comments.
When users 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. Submitted visitor comments are checked through the Akismet automated spam detection service. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) is provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. You can read more about this process under authorized third parties.
