This site uses the Akismet plug-in to reduce spam; this is how they process your comment data.

There are very few other plug-ins on this site; those in current use are: Advanced Excerpt; Classic Editor (I’m too set in my ways to use the new WordPress editor); Contact Form 7; Really Simple CAPTCHA, Subscribe / Connect / Follow Widget, WP-reCAPTCHA, WP to Twitter, and WPtouch Mobile. The controllers of these plug-ins will not contact or track you without your explicit consent.
There’s also GNU Terry Pratchett, which doesn’t process any personal data – it just adds an X-Clacks-Overhead header with “GNU Terry Pratchett” to all non-admin pages on this site; here’s why; and here’s where I first read about it.
Thanks for your interest in privacy. You might also be interested in some of my posts on it.
