Cookies

If you wish to leave a comment on our site, then you can opt to save your name and email address on our website. This provision makes things convenient for you so that you will not have to enter your name and email address, every time you visit the site. This step can aid you when you comment on our website the next time since the cookies last for a year.

When you log into our site through a login Id, then a temporary session cookie is set up to check if your browser accepts cookies. It is temporary and hence no personal information will be recorded. Once you close your browser, the data is discarded.

During your login, there are many other cookies that will be set up to save login information and other preferences like display properties. Log in cookies usually stay for two days and the screen option cookies stay for a year. The option “Remember me” will enable you to save your login for two weeks through the corresponding cookies. When you log out, the cookies will be removed.

In case of any editor instances where you publish an article, an additional cookie gets saved in the browser. With an expiry over a year, this cookie just indicates the post ID of the article without saving any personal information.

Data Sharing

How long we retain your data

Once you post a comment, the comment and the metadata is retained for an indefinite period of time. This is to facilitate any follow-up comments or edits so that they aren’t held up for moderation.  Users who register on our website will have to provide their personal information which will be stored in the user profile. Users can edit or delete their personal information at any point of time.

Your rights over your data

If you hold an account on our site and post a comment anywhere, you can ask for the personal data to be exported as a separate file including the data you have provided us in the due course. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we have about you. But this does not cover the data we tend to retain for administrative, security and legal purposes.
