What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If you leave a comment on this site, we collect the data shown in the form, as well as IP and browser user agent string to help spam detection. We also hash your email address, which may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. Their service policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. If your comment is approved, we’ll use your profile picture in the comment.



If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Yum yum, cookies. The full cookie policy can be found here: https://uting.no/cookie-policy/.

Embeded content from other sites

Sometimes we may embed content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) in articles. Embedded content from other sites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other site.

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.


We use Google Analytics to track reader statistics. Their service policy is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy.


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.


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

Visitor comments & contact form may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
