We value your privacy. We do not collect any personal information when you visit one of our websites unless you choose to provide that information to us. Smellyeyeball does not sell, exchange, or release your personal information to outside parties without your consent. Once we obtain your consent, we consider it valid until revoked by you.

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.

Web Forms

We use a contact form as a way for you to communicate with us regarding the website. We gather your name, email address, and your comment which is sent via email to us. Your submission will be stored for 28 days and then automatically deleted.

We use hCAPTCHA on web forms on our website. When you enter data into one of our web forms, hCAPTCHA uses cookies to determine whether users are humans and not spambots. By entering data into our web forms, you are subject to the hCaptcha’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.


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.

Use of Cookies for Analytics

This website uses Koko Analytics for web browsing analytics. Koko doesn’t collect any user-identifying data. It only counts the total visits to pages and posts. 

If configured to do so, Koko may set a cookie to keep track of what pages a user has visited. This cookie doesn’t contain a personal tracking ID, it only includes the IDs of the pages someone visited and results in Koko counting a visit as a unique/first visit or a return visit for that page or post. 

Koko analytics keeps all data contained on this website database and doesn’t send any data off-site nor does it share anything with third parties.

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.

WhoM Do we share your data with?

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We value your privacy and do not share or sell your data.

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 do 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 do we send your data?

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