What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the 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 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.


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.

Data entered into contact forms is only used and handled by Carbon Magics Authorized personnel.


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 visit our login page, 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.). 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 we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long 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 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What are “cookies”?


“Cookies” are small-sized text files stored in browser directories used by the user. “Cookies’ are used to help users effectively use Web sites and make certain functionalities available. “Cookies” play an important role in facilitating and improving the usability of websites, which, if deleted or blocked, may cause some websites or certain functionalities to become unavailable to users.


How do we use “cookies”?


We use “cookies” on this website to ensure its accessibility and usability, providing certain functionalities (eg remembering user preferences for language, settings, etc.), improving its work, and analyzing consumer behavior in its use. No personal data is stored in “cookies”. We cannot identify you with “cookies”.


The information gathered from “cookies” is generally used in a generic way, which enables us to optimize the website as well as to improve its structure, functionality and content. We may employ the learning of your behavior on our website to serve you with targeted advertisements on third-party website(s) in an effort to “re-market” our products and services to you.


What “cookies” do we use?


The following “cookies” are used on this website:


Own cookies


Own cookies are “cookies” issued by the domain and are used to identify language and location preferences or provide basic site features.


Seasonal Cookies


Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used for remembering when you visit and use the web site and they expire when you close the web browser.


Persistent cookies


Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences within the web site and remain on your computer or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart the computer. We use these cookies to analyze user behavior to establish visit patterns so we can provide enhanced functionality to our website to you and other users who visit our website. These cookies allow us to provide targeted advertising and evaluate the efficiency of the work and advertising on our website.
Third-party cookies


It is possible for the website to have links to other sites or embedded content from other sites (such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+, etc.). When visiting these sites or opening content from them, it is likely that your “cookie” will be placed on your terminal device from these other sites as well. In practice, such “cookies” are referred to as “third-party cookies”. We have no control over the generation and management of “third-party cookies”. For more information about the purpose of using “third-party cookies” and their content, please search and learn about the privacy and cookie policies adopted by the third parties concerned.


How are “cookies” used for advertising purposes?


Cookies and ad technologies like web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network labels help us deliver more relevant ads more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated data from surveys and research and performance reports for advertisers. Pixels allow us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you as well as to know when certain ads are shown to you. Because the web browser can claim advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these network servers can view, edit, or set their own cookies in the same way that, as if you had requested a web page from their site


Although we do not use cookies to create a profile for your browsing experience on third-party sites, we use third-party aggregate data to show you relevant interest-based ads. We do not provide any personal data collected to advertisers. You can opt out from receiving third party ads and off-site ads by changing your cookie settings. Opting out will not remove ads from the pages you visit, but you will see ads that are not based on your interests. This means that the ads you see will not match your interests with these specific cookies.

If you prefer, you can change your cookie settings in such a way that existing cookies are deleted or automatically blocked from placing cookies (including third-party cookies). Please note that if you choose to delete or block cookies, this may affect the accessibility or functionality of this website.
