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.
In the event we believe you are in violation of any legal establishments, any data believed to be helpful in investigation will be handed over to the appropriate authorities. Any further data requested by any entities necessarily involved will also be handed over.
Data may also be shared automatically with third party services to improve user experience.
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.
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.
This website continuously monitors and tracks all visitors on this web domain. Data being tracked includes but is not limited to:
– User computer information such as device type, OS type & version, browser information, screen display size, etc.
– IP address, ISP, geo-location data and other contributing information associated with your IP
– Which webpages you visit and how long you remain on those webpages
– Which foreign links posted on the website that you interact with
– Where you came from if you accessed this website by clicking it’s link posted anywhere
This data can be seen in real-time and can only be accessed by administrators. The system will attribute all data to your account overtime if logged in. If visitors do not have accounts then it will keep it in another file.
The system is smart enough to identify registered users that are not logged in based on a specified amount of combined data. That information is automatically processed and attributed to your account.
The system can also identify and mark visitors as either organic, bots or something else. If the system identifies bots, it will verify with the bot what it’s purpose is and why it’s on the website. The system will flag visitors if it deems whatever it is the visitor is doing as suspicious.
If a visitor is flagged as suspicious, it will await an administrators decision unless the action it identifies the user is taking is severe, in which case the system will automatically act on it’s own to handle the situation. Administrators have a plethora of tools at their disposal to handle all situations and can override the system if necessary.
All information the system logs are held onto indefinitely. This information is deemed as necessary for the website and it’s visitor’s security and will not be deleted if requested.
