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.


Our website employs services to measure and track anonymous visitor information and usage data to understand how people use our website, what works well and what needs to be improved. We also use web hosting services that also may collect some anonymous analytics data for similar purposes. All analytics data is anonymous and therefore cannot be tracked to our visitors directly.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your information with any third party companies. Period.

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.
