When a user posts a message on this site, we collect the information displayed in the message form, the user’s source IP address, and the browser’s user agent string to help the site detect spam.

The site creates anonymized strings (also known as hashes) based on the user’s e-mail address and provides the Gravatar avatar service with a way to find out if the user is a user of the service. For information about the Gravatar avatar service’s privacy policy, please visit https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once a user’s message has been approved by the site administrator, the user’s profile picture will be publicly displayed in the message content.

If you need to upload pictures to this site, please avoid uploading pictures with embedded EXIF GPS location data, as other users can download pictures from the site and retrieve the location data therein.

When posting messages on this website, users can choose whether or not to have their name, email address and website URL stored in a cookie; this information is stored for their convenience so that they do not need to fill in their personal information again when posting other messages. These cookies will remain on the user’s device for one year if the user does not clear the cookie on the device itself.

If a user visits the login page of this website, a temporary cookie is set to determine whether the user’s browser accepts the cookie; this cookie does not contain any personal information and is discarded when the user closes his or her browser.

After a user logs in, several cookies are set to store the user’s login information and display settings; the login information cookie is retained for two days and the display settings cookie is retained for one year. If the “Stay logged in” setting is checked at login, the user’s login status will be maintained for two weeks; the login information cookie will be removed from the user’s device when the account is logged out.

Additional cookies are stored in the browser when users edit or post articles; this cookie does not contain any personal information, but only the article ID that indicates the article written by the user, and will expire after one day.

Articles on this site may have embedded video, images, articles, etc. Embedded content from third-party sites is treated in exactly the same way as the privacy practices that govern users’ visits to those sites.

Regardless of whether the user has an account on these third-party sites or is logged in, they may collect information about the user in various ways, such as cookies, embedding third-party tracking code, monitoring the user’s interaction with the embedded content, etc.

If you make a password reset request, the IP address of your current connection will be displayed in the password reset email.

After a user posts a message on this site, that message and its relay data will be retained indefinitely. This allows the system to automatically recognize and approve any subsequent messages without having to keep them in the queue for review.

For users who register on the site, the site also stores the personal information they provide on the user’s [profile] page. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of user names that cannot be changed). Please note that the site administrator can also view and edit this personal information.

If a user has an account on this site or has posted a message, he or she may request a downloadable export file of the user’s personal information on this site, which contains all of the personal information that the user has provided to this site. Users may also request the erasure of all personal information provided to this site, but this request does not include information that must be retained by the site for administrative, legal or security purposes.

User message data will be sent to the automatic spam detection service for checking.
