Who we are
This website (with address https://scarff.id.au) is a personal blog by Dean Scarff; it is not part of any business or enterprise.
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. This is sent to the Akismet spam detection service.
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.
Whenever visitors make requests to the site over the internet, we collect “request logs”, containing the timestamp, URL, user agent, and IP address of each request, to diagnose problems relating to the reliability of the website.
Request logs may be retained for up to 30 days.
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.
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.
