If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our site to help us ensure that it is working correctly, collect anonymous information on which pages are being visited by users, for how long, and which other webpages, social media posts or advertisements those users have arrived from. We use Facebook Analytics for the same purposes. You should note that while we cannot see any personally identifiable information about you through these services, the operators of these services are able to identify you if you are logged into their services (or subsequently log into their services without clearing your cookies). Your information will be used by them in accordance with their own privacy policies and user agreements to which you have consented.

Who we share your data with

We may share your data with companies within the Maze Media group. We do not share your data with any other companies.

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.
