Browsing the Site

The computer systems running this site log standard information about page visits. Website logging does not include your name, email address, or other personal information, but it does include your IP address. This information is used to analyze and generate reports about website traffic patterns (e.g., the popularity of pages, etc.). If a third-party is used in conjunction with traffic analysis, it will be described in this privacy policy.


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 a third-party service to see if you are using it. The privacy policy of such a third-party may be referenced here. If profile pictures are used with comments, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.
