2.2 Gravatar: An anonymized string created from the user’s email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to check if they are using it. Gravatar is a service that allows users to display a profile picture alongside their comments.

2.4 Cookies: If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for convenience, so users don’t have to fill in their details again when leaving another comment. Cookies last for one year.

Cookies are also used for the login process. Temporary cookies are set to determine if a user’s browser accepts cookies. Additionally, cookies are set to save login information, screen display choices, and article editing information.

3. Embedded Content from Other Websites

For registered users, personal information provided in their user profile is stored. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time. Website administrators can also see and edit this information.

7. Your Rights Over Your Data

Users with accounts on our site or those who have left comments can request an exported file containing their personal data. Users also have the right to request the erasure of their personal data, except for data required for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
