In compliance with EU Law, here is how “cookies” are used on this website.
Cookies are software tools that save information about what you do when browsing a website. While they can be used intrusively to gather information about your browsing habits, most of the use of these tools is benign, and often essential to the operation of the site. Typically cookies either pass information from one website to another, or forwards in time to remember how you used a site in the past. Here is how cookies are used at this website.
The Bad Behavior anti-spam tool, which we use to help prevent spam comments appearing on this site, uses a cookie.
This feature sends page view events (and potentially video play events) over to Google Analytics for consumption. Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects.
A cookie (akm_mobile) is stored for 3.5 days to remember whether or not a visitor of the site wishes to view its mobile version. Learn more about this cookie.
In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
Data Recorded: Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.
Sharing by Email
Data Used: When sharing content via email, the following information is used: sharing party’s name and email address, IP address (for spam checking), user agent (for spam checking), and email body/content. This content will be sent to the spam protection software so that a spam check can be performed.
Usage statistics for this site are also recorded by WordPress.com.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: We do not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, we can see that a specific post has 285 views, but we cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by WordPress.com for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
