This site is based on a standard AWS Lightsail WordPress (WP) instance. As such this site ploughs the same furrow as the vast number of other WP sites out there in the firmament of the intraweb.
If you browse this site, the out-of-the-box WP configuration gathers stats to enable a WP admin to gauge traffic volumes, page hits, date/time accessed info etc etc to provide insights and trend analysis information. This site does nothing above and beyond this basic functionality to intrude on your privacy.
Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.alistaira.com/ … but if you’re here, reading this, you should know that already…
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site, the data shown in the comments form is collected, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
If you leave a comment on the 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 additional comments in the future. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, the site 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 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.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so the site can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

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.
