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.
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.
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.
How to safely submit your writing
We encourage people to be aware that their submissions are highly traceable. While this how-to cannot guarantee complete privacy, we hope it can help a bit.
We encourage you to not save your documents on your computer. Ideally you can write your work on paper and then transfer it to a notepad on your computer right as you are going to send it. But for longer works this may not be possible, so in this case we would suggest using a service like cryptpad or riseup pad to write the document. Only use these services over TOR if possible. Keep in mind storing the URL of the pad on your computer in any way is pretty much the same as storing the document itself.
Once your writing is finished. We encourage you to continue using TOR browser or Tails to email it to us. We also suggest you use a privacy focused email service like Riseup or protonmail, and not have it linked to your legal name whatsoever. Not in the address and not in a back-up email for your email account. If the email service requires you to have a backup email, make a different email on gmail or outlook that does not have your legal name anywhere. And be sure to use Tor browser while setting these up.
All visual media should have Exif data removed through apps like ExifPurge.
We hope these tips help you become more aware of your privacy on the internet. While this how-to is a must for submitting communiques, we suggest everyone does it for every piece of writing. It might seem like a slog, but it is good practice and a good habit to get into. Even if you might think it is not a big deal, anyone digging into your points of view might. It’s good protocol to ask– how might this look being read back to me in court? Don’t let that be a possibility and please submit anonymously with lots of care into protecting that anonymity.
