The Brief Intelligible Summary
- As a general policy, we don’t collect any personally identifiable information.

- If we introduce a contact form we will of course retain any message entered, and the contact details so that we can reply.
- Any data you fill in will never be shared with any third party or used for advertising, marketing, etc.
- All this information belongs to the user, and we only have the right to use it as the user intended. It will be deleted if the user requests it.
- Any payment information is handled by the service the user selects; we don’t have access to it.
- All other visitor data is essentially anonymous, and is used only to measure the amount of traffic that the site receives.
The Exhaustive Technical Details
If you register an account on this site it will save 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.
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.
Who we share your data with
All visits to the site are recorded for the purpose of analysing how well the site is performing. This data may be shared with Google Analytics, but only in ways that keep the individual visitor anonymous. So no personal data is shared with Google or any other advertisers or third parties.
Any online payments are handled by the third party service selected by the customer (e.g., PayPal) and information entered is only seen by that service provider. Payment details are not visible to, or retained by, this website.
How long we retain your data
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.
Where we send your data
Messages entered into a contact form may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We do not receive any contact information from you unless you register an account on this site or use a contact form. Then it will be used only for that purpose, and will not be shared with any third party or used to contact you for any purpose that you did not opt into.
How we protect your data
Whatever user data we have is held securely within this website’s internal database, which is not accessible by third parties.
Additional information – Jetpack Services
This feature only records activities of a site’s registered users, and the retention duration of activity data will depend on the site’s plan and activity type.
Data Used: To deliver this functionality and record activities around site management, the following information is captured: user email address, user role, user login, user display name, WordPress.com and local user IDs, the activity to be recorded, the WordPress.com-connected site ID of the site on which the activity takes place, the site’s Jetpack version, and the timestamp of the activity. Some activities may also include the actor’s IP address (login attempts, for example) and user agent.
Activity Tracked: Login attempts/actions, post and page update and publish actions, comment/pingback submission and management actions, plugin and theme management actions, widget updates, user management actions, and the modification of other various site settings and options. Retention duration of activity data depends on the site’s plan and activity type. See the complete list of currently-recorded activities (along with retention information).
Data Synced (?): Successful and failed login attempts, which will include the actor’s IP address and user agent.

Data Used: If Akismet is enabled on the site, the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
Data Synced (?): Post and post meta data associated with a user’s contact form submission. If Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.
Latest Instagram Posts Block

Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (
jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
