If you leave a comment on our website, you will be asked if you want to save your name, email address and website in our cookies. This makes it easier for you because your information will be “remembered” the next time you leave a comment. Cookies expire after one year.

When you visit the login page, a session cookie will be created to check if your browser accepts cookies. Session cookies do not contain any personal information and are deleted automatically each time you close your browser.

When you log in, we use cookies to keep a record of your visit and your preferences. Login cookies expire after two days and persistent cookies with your preferences expire after one year. If you click the “Remember me” box, the login cookie will expire after two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be deleted.

If you edit or post a publication, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal information. It only contains information about the publication you have edited and expires after one day.

How we use and share your personal information

How long we keep your information

If you leave a comment, the comment and related metadata will be stored indefinitely. This allows us to remember you and approve your next comments instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.

We also store the personal information contained in the profile of our registered users (if user registration is an option). All registered users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your rights over your information

If you have an account or you leave comments on the website, you can request a file with all the personal information we have about you on record, including the information you have provided us. You can also request the deletion of your personal information. You cannot request information to be deleted if we are permitted by law to keep that information or if it is stored for administrative or security purposes.

Sharing your personal information

Visitors’ comments may be verified using an automated spam detection service.
