What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on this 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.

Contact forms

When you use a contact form, your message is sent via email to one of our inboxes. The content of your email and metadata like address or IP can be stored there as well.


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.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We maintain a newsletter with information about ad-related topics. By subscribing, you agree that we may process your information in accordance with these terms.

To prevent misuse, a double opt-in is required, which means that you will receive an email to confirm your subscription before we can send you anything else.

Once you are subscribed, you can change your mind at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us, or by contacting us.

We use MailChimp as our marketing automation platform. By subscribing, you acknowledge that the information you provide will be transferred to MailChimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms.

Who we share your data with

Locally stored data is only visible to those team members who have a viable reason to access it. They are not shared with external parties.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you 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.
