What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site 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.

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 the 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.

In these cases and most other cases, the email that we receive is not used in any way other way. We will not give your information to anyone outside of our organization for any reason.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics to help us understand where our audience is and how they are responding to the content on the website. This information is used to understand statistical information about populations and does not indicate any specifics about a single user.

If you do not want us, or any other website for that matter, to access your data through cookies, then you can install this handy browser plugin that will disable Google Analytics from tracking you. The point of the plugin “is to provide website visitors the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics.”

Who we share your data with

Your data is used only for business purposes. We (Spa Cia) will never use your information for anything other than business purposes. We will never share data with any organization outside of our partnership.

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.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their 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.

The information collected for Google Analytics is deleted 14 months after the last interaction the user has with the website.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, 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.
