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.
GroovyArtichokes.com does allow comments but not contributions from readers. The following notes about privacy may help you in your travels. We do not intend to house user accounts that may be breached. We do allow comments, but only anonymous information is retained to make the website work better for your web browser as described below.
When visitors leave comments on a site it may collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to a 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.
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 recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on a website (if any), they also store 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.

If you have an account on this or another site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that they erase any personal data held about you. This does not include any data they are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
