What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on our website, 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 upload images to our app, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. But then, we don’t have provision for image upload.
We collect your name, email address whenever you wish to contact us using our contact page. These data are used to reply you if needed and is kept only but temporarily. On request (before we delete them ourselves), they will be deleted.
If you leave a comment on our website, 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.
