Like most website operators, Disruptive.Asia collects non personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Disruptive.Asia’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Disruptive.Asia’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Disruptive.Asia may release non personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
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 leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service Akismet.
Akismet collects information about visitors who comment on Sites that use the Akismet anti-spam service. The information collected depends on how the sites set up Akismet, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
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.
