Privacy Policy

Welcome to, a website operated by Kate Brown. Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting your personal data. This privacy policy explains how we collect, use, and share your personal information when you use our website.


When you leave comments on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and 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.


If you upload images to our website, 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.


We use cookies to store information about your preferences, record user-specific information on what pages you access or visit, and to personalize your experience. Cookies are also used to keep you logged in, if you have a registered account. Cookies are stored for a period of time depending on their nature.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website 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

We may share your data with third parties who process data for us, such as Amazon Web Services or Google Analytics. We may also share your data with anyone whom we send a password reset email including your IP address.

How long we retain your data

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. If you register on our website, we also store the personal information you provide in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on our website or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

We may transfer the data collected about you to other countries which may have different data protection laws than your home country. Your data may be processed outside of your home country, including in countries where the privacy laws may offer different levels of protection than those in your home country.
