Privacy Policy

Who I am

I’m Cyn Armis­tead. This web­site’s address is It is a per­son­al site, and I’m the only per­son involved in main­tain­ing it.

What personal data the site collects and why it collects it


When vis­i­tors leave com­ments on the site, I col­lect the data shown in the com­ments form, and also the visitor’s I.P. 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 can down­load and extract any loca­tion data from images on the website.

Contact forms

The con­tact form emails your mes­sage to the site admin­is­tra­tor. I store your email address and your message.


If you leave a com­ment on this 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 log in to this site, it 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, the site will also set up sev­er­al cook­ies to save your login infor­ma­tion and 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 I.D. of the arti­cle you just edit­ed. It expires after one (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 exact­ly 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.


This site may use Google Ana­lyt­ics. That is a ser­vice that tracks your I.P. address, the pages you vis­it on the site, and any refer­ring sites.

Who I share your data with

I don’t share your data with any­one unless I receive threats or oth­er ille­gal mate­r­i­al, in which case I share the rel­e­vant mate­r­i­al with the appro­pri­ate law enforce­ment agency.

How long the site retains your data

If you leave a com­ment, the com­ment and its meta­da­ta are retained indef­i­nite­ly. This is so the site can auto­mat­i­cal­ly rec­og­nize and approve any fol­low-up com­ments instead of hold­ing them in a mod­er­a­tion queue.

For users that reg­is­ter on this web­site (if any), the site also stores 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 the site holds about you, includ­ing any data you have pro­vid­ed to it. You can also request that I erase any per­son­al data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am oblig­ed to keep for admin­is­tra­tive, legal, or secu­ri­ty purposes.

Where the site sends your data

Vis­i­tor com­ments are checked through an auto­mat­ed spam detec­tion service.
