Web server logging
This web site is private. I have no interest in collecting your personal data. While the web server software logs web traffic data, it's not used except for trouble-shooting, should problems arise.
Some articles have commenting enabled. If you choose to comment, you should be aware that some of your personal information, ie your e-mail and IP addresses are saved for authentication reasons.
Commenting on this site has been disabled for no reason whatsoever.
If you later change your mind, and want a comment and the accompanying data removed, please use the contact form to contact me and I'll see to that's it's deleted promptly.
Access and error logs are rotated weekly and saved four weeks, after which point they are deleted.
Legal basis for collecting and storing logs without consent
You cannot collect and store any personal data without having obtained, and being able to document that you obtained, consent from the persons you are collecting data from. You can, however, still collect and store personal data in your server logs for the limited and legitimate purpose of detecting and preventing fraud and unauthorized system access, and ensuring the security of your systems.

It's your choice to make and I respect that.
Commenting on this site
The site comment policy can be easily described as be nice and be respectful. It doesn't have to be more difficult than that.
Again, commenting is disabled on this site.
Just remember this is my site, I get to decide who's not nice or respectful. Shout all you want, this is still my site, ergo my rules.
Off-topic comments, spam and such are summarily dealt with as soon as I get alerted about them.
This site is currently using the Disqus comment plugin with its own set of policies and rules .
Disqus has been removed from this site on account of the extension needed was so crappy.
The Internet is still watching however. They always do.
