Who is the responsible of the data

Simone Rescio, website:


When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form as well as 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) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here: After your comment is approved, 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 that include embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you visit the login page, a temporary cookie will be set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, several cookies will be set to save your login information and your screen display options. Login cookies last for two days and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Content embedded from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

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

Who your data is shared with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long your data is kept

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is so I can automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on the website, the personal information they provide in their user profile is also stored. All users can see, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except their username which they cannot change). I as the administrator can also see and edit these information.

What rights do 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 I hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that all personal data held about you to be erased. This does not include data I am required to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Your data, as well as the rest of the data and contents of my site, is stored in a data center located in the European Union, to be precise in Amsterdam, owned by the provider BibiHost.
