When visitors leave comments on this site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatat 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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms and Other Submissions

This site uses Aikismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment and other form submission data is processed to reduce spam.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) This includes Eventbrite which we use for reigstrations. 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Registrations and Ticket Sales

All ticket sales are processed by our ticket handler Eventbrite. We embed content from Eventbrite on our site via passthru. We do not have anyway to directly record the information provide Eventbrite. We will never ask for your credit card or sensitive billing data, and we never see your secure billings data. Therefore we can never store it on our platform. We will receive a copy of the other ticket sales information that you provide Eventbrite which is necessary for us to process your registration (including your email and post mailing address). We may store this information and use it to correspond with you about the ticket transactions and send you news about the event so that you may use your ticket.

Mailing Lists

We use MailChimp for mailing lists. Your email address and other information you provide is sent to Mailchimp when you request our newsletter. We will also send our email address and information you provide to mailchimp when you purchase a ticket through Eventbrite or when you submit a session to our call for sessions.

You have the rights to opt out of mailings at anytime.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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 profile. 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.

What rights 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 we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You may opt out of all mailings.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service as mentioned above. We also may collect anonymised information from your IP address which can be sent to google analytics but only in compliane with all regulations.

What data do we receive from third-parties?

We receive data as described above from Eventbrite. We may also receive anonymised data from google analytics.
