 An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be provided to the Gravatar service to verify that you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: After your comment is approved, your profile photo is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


 If you upload images to the website, avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Site visitors can download and extract all location data from images on the site.


 If you leave a comment on our website, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies last for a year.

 Embedded content from other sites

 Articles on this site may include embedded content (for example, videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other sites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other site.

 These sites may collect data about you, use cookies, incorporate additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content, if you have an account and are logged on to that site.
