What data do we collect and why?
We collect the data given in the comments form when visitors leave comments under any article, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to aid spam detection. When you comment, the profile picture of your e-mail ID is made public to other users.
Please keep in mind that any information or materials you publish or reveal on this Site via message boards, chat rooms, profile pages, blogs, and other services (including social networking services) are public and will be seen by other Site visitors. When determining whether or not to disclose any personal data or other information on this Site, keep this in mind.

Avoid submitting photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if you’re uploading images to the website. Any location data from the photographs available or uploaded on the website can be downloaded and extracted by website visitors.

You can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies if you leave a comment on our site. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to enter your information again when you post another comment. This batch of cookies will last for a year.
If you log in to this site with an account, we’ll set a temporary cookie to see if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie includes no personal information and is deleted the moment you close your browser.
Similarly, we’ll set up many cookies when you log in to save your login information on our website and screen display preferences. Cookies for login and screen options last for two days and a year, respectively.

Third-party websites
This Privacy Statement does not address the privacy practices of any third parties, including those who own websites to which this Site links, and we are not responsible for them. The presence of a link on this Site does not imply that we or our affiliates support the linked website’s practices.

How long do we retain the data?
