Privacy Policy

This policy discloses our privacy practices and information collected on our web-based services or that you otherwise provide to us. By using the website or voluntarily providing us with personal information, you agree to the terms and conditions of this policy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Certain information may be collected automatically each time you visit the website. The information collected may allow us to match activity to specific users. Examples of the types of information that may be collected are:

Your internet service provider’s address, your internet protocol or IP address, device ID, the webpage you visit the website from, your web browser software, the type of handheld or mobile device used to link to the webpage, and the language setting at on your web browser;
a record of your activity while visiting the website;
We will also collect personal information you provide/enter on the website, such as information such as your name, email address, mailing address and telephone number.


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.

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 to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


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.

When you log in, we 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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on our website (if any), we 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.

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 we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


Icosmeti is committed to keeping your information safe. We use industry standard security measures on our website to help prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from you on our website. We’ve even added measures to protect the personal information you collect during your transactions.

These sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business partners. While it is our goal to only link to sites that have our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices used by other sites.
