Who We Are

Our website address is: https://codetown.org.


When visitors leave comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string, to help with spam detection.

An anonymized text (also known as a hash) created from your email address can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using the service. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found at the following address: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is approved, your profile picture, if you have one, will be visible to the public along with your comment.


When uploading images to a website, it is advisable to avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Website visitors can potentially download and extract any location information from the images on the website. To protect the privacy and security of individuals, it is recommended to remove or strip out any EXIF GPS data from images before uploading them to the website. This ensures that no sensitive location information is inadvertently shared with the website visitors.

Embedded Content

The articles on this site may contain 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 third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.

How Long Do We Keep Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We also store the personal information provided by users who register on our website (if applicable) 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 view and edit this information.

What are your rights regarding your data?

If you have an account or comments on this site, you may request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including the data you have provided to us. You may 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.
