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.

We use a third-party comment management system called Disqus. Please go through their privacy policy to understand how they collect the data.

We use Google Analytics to analyze traffic and several other factors.

Please read through this Google Analytics privacy policy to understand what data is collected as a part of this.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do we share your data with?

Data collected from subscription box

Data collected from comments

We use a third-party comment management system called Disqus. Please read through their privacy policy to understand what data they collect when you leave a comment on our website.

Data collected from advertisements

We may use several ad partners such as Google Adsense and they may collect data to understand your behavior. We don’t have any control over this data if you decide to share it with them.

How long do 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 profiles. 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.
