We respect your privacy and we are committed to protecting it. The following policy outlines the type of information that is collected, why it is collected, and how it is used.
As the majority of websites, we keep logs of the visits. The server logs include: the path of the requested resource (web page), the type and the version of the browser used for making the request, the Internet Protocol address used for connecting to the Site, time and date stamp, and referrer page (if any). This is done for both statistical and security purposes, so that we can have a better understanding of our audience preferences towards specific posts, which can help us to improve the quality of the Site Content, as well as to ensure the normal functioning of the Site by finding out about unauthorized log-in attempts, in addition to identifying various other malicious techniques for interfering with the normal operations of the Site. The server log files are kept in a password-protected account accessible via a secure connection, and they are not shared with any third-party individuals or entities, unless we are required to do so by law.
When you leave a comment, we collect the data you choose to provide (e.g. name, email address, website, and the text of the comment). The name, email address and website are all optional, meaning they are not required for submitting a comment. In other words, you can leave these fields blank. Nevertheless, your IP address and browser user agent string are collected for the purpose of spam detection. Once the comment have been approved for publication and appears on the Site, the name (if provided) will be publicly visible but your email address (if provided) will not published. Your comment and its metadata are retained as long as the specific Site Content they posted under remains published, unless you request us to erase them. We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 13, nor are they permitted to use the Site and any of the Site functionality.
We use Google Analytics (including Demographics and Interest Reporting) for the purpose of having a better understanding of how the site performs. We have set the User and event data retention in Google Analytics to the minimum which is 14 months. To learn how Google Analytics collects and processes data, visit “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” and Google Analytics’ data practices. Furthermore, you can learn about the specific Google Analytics Cookie Usage on Websites. In order to opt-out from Google Analytics, visit: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

If you leave a comment you can opt-in to have your name, email address and website saved in your browser so that you won’t need to re-type your information again when you decide to leave another comment. By selecting “Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment”, a first-party cookie will be placed in your browser, and it will last for one year. Conversely, if you don’t select “Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment”, no first-party cookie will be placed in your browser. Furthermore, you may disallow cookies (either globally or on a per website basis) or delete any existing ones through your browser’s settings.
