How Information Is Gathered and Used

Each time you visit our website, certain pieces of information may be collected. This may be done through forms, surveys or other online fields to improve your user experience.

Instead, it is used for research, marketing and forecasting purposes to improve our services. All of our data collection is done in line with applicable laws and the purposes explicitly or implicitly stated in the privacy policy.

Third-Party Advertising

If you are contracting us for specific services or products, third parties may be involved to process payments or for list generation. When information is required for these services to be performed, it is given to the third-party provider. We typically use third-party companies to create and serve advertisements on your site. Through these third parties, data may be collected and used about your visit.

Third-party businesses may use aggregated data to make sure that our advertisements are relevant. They are given aggregated information that does not include identifiable details like your name, telephone number, email address or physical address. The information that is collected is used to personalize your experience and provide you with advertisements about relevant goods or services.

An IP address is a number that is given to a computer, mobile device or Internet accessing network. When you visit our site, your IP address is stored in the website’s log. The IP address helps us to aggregate information, run our website and track visits to our pages. Although the IP address does not show your personal information, it may be included when you leave a message in the forums.

The cookies may look at the number of referrals from search engines, Web traffic, browsing patterns and advertising responses. Through your browser, you can opt out of using these cookies if you wish.

We may need to provide your information to third parties like government agencies, insurance companies, legal investigations, retailers and services providers. This will be done according to all applicable laws, and it will be done according to the terms of the privacy policy.

Social Media

To enhance your user experience, our website operates social media platforms. These accounts allow us to connect directly with users and share relevant pictures, articles and information. Whenever content is posted, the images, pictures and personal information shared will be done according to the privacy policies of the social media sites. To better understand how your information is used or stored on social media, please consult with the policies of the social media website involved.

Once we have this information, we can update account statements, materials and records.

Links to Other Websites

To improve your experience, we may provide links to other websites for information or other purposes. The other websites are not controlled or managed by our company, so you will need to read through their individual privacy policies. We cannot guarantee that the websites will protect your privacy or security, and our site is not responsible for the security offered by other websites.

Children and the Privacy Policy

Our website is not intended to be used by children younger than 13 years old. Some of the material and information may not be appropriate for children, so please monitor your child’s use of the Internet. We target our website toward adults, so features like the bulletin boards are not suitable for younger users. We encourage every parent to discuss online safety with their children and to monitor their online interactions.

Ownership Changes

In the future, it is possible that another business or company may buy assets in our website. When this occurs, we reserve the right to transfer personal information and other data to the new website owners. We will do our best to ensure that your data is protected throughout any transition. For future ownership changes or updates, you should regularly check the privacy policy.

Customized Services

Advertising is targeted at specific users through the information that we collect. Through this process, we are able to make sure that each service, advertisement and product is customized to meet your needs. In addition, some of the information that we collect may be used to customize features of the website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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: After approval of your comment, 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.


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 visit our login page, 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

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 (if any), 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.
