What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This stored data includes:
- IP Address
- Date and time of the visit
- URL that was requested
- Country of the IP address
The site also utilizes an analytics tool which stores data for the purpose of tracking site traffic.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data
Information collected by the IQ Block Country plugin is retained for 30 days.
Information collected by the analytics tool is retained indefinitely for long term statistics.
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.
