I collect domain data which form part of the analysis on site through the website.

This information, as example the number of times the website is visited and which pages within rhe website were viewed, is collected with the aim of improving the accessibility and quality of the web pages. The data processed is completely anonymous and collected using a third party service provided by Matomo.
The platform by Matomo supports and adheres to the “Do Not Track” preference set by your browser,

The privacy policy for such service can be found at Matomo Privacy Policy. This information is collected automatically so you don’t need to do anything else about it.


When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How long your data is retained

If you leave a comment and I (the moderator) release it for public viewing, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Comments that are flagged as spam or are otherwise not accepted, will be deleted immediately and irreversably.
