What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We use log files like many other websites. The information in the log files include:
- Internet Protocol addresses (IP)
- Types of browser

All of this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.

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

Visitors can download and extract any location data from images on this website.

Other Advertising Networks
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.
This site uses Google Analytics through a plugin called Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (GADWP). According to Google Analytics terms of service (TOS), analytics customers are prohibited from sending personal information to Google. By default, the GADWP plugin doesn’t send this type of data to Google.
Regarding IP addresses, Google Analytics reports do not include nor display such information.
Google has now updated their Data Processing Amendment (DPA) to account for the General Data Processing Regulations (GDPR).
Google Analytics provides a browser extension that will allow users to opt-out of tracking across all websites, here’s the link.
The IP anonymization feature, which is a Data Privacy feature in GADWP
While Google Analytics is not revealing IP addresses on reports, this doesn’t mean the IPs are anonymized by default. GADWP provides a feature to anonymize the user IP and we have enabled this feature.
Google Analytics may collect user ID/hashed personal data, IP addresses, cookies or behavior profiling.
