Use of personal data collected
When you leave a comment on our website, the data entered in the comment form, but also your IP address and the user agent of your browser are collected to help us detect unwanted comments.
An anonymized channel created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using the latter. The Gravatar service confidentiality clauses are available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After validation of your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.
If you are a registered user and you upload images to the website, we advise you to avoid uploading images containing EXIF GPS coordinates. Visitors to your website can download and extract location data from these images.
If you post a comment on our site, you will be asked to save your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. It's only for your comfort so you do not have to enter this information if you post another comment later. These cookies expire after one year.
If you go to the login page, a temporary cookie will be created to determine if your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain personal data and will be deleted automatically when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will set up a number of cookies to save your login information and screen preferences. The lifespan of a login cookie is two days, that of a screen option cookie is one year. If you check "Remember me", your connection cookie will be kept for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be deleted.
By modifying or publishing a publication, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not include any personal data. It simply indicates the ID of the publication you just edited. It expires after one day.
Embedded content from other sites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (eg videos, images, articles ...). With content embedded from other sites, it is just as if the visitor had visited the other site.
Storage times of your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This automatically recognizes and approves any comments that may follow instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.
For users who register on our site (if this is possible), we also store the personal data indicated in their profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except their username). Site managers can also view and edit this information.
The rights you have on your data
If you have an account or have left comments on the site, you can request to receive a file containing all the personal data that we have about you, including those that you have provided us with. You can also request that your personal data be deleted. This does not take into account data stored for administrative, legal or security purposes.
