When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form in addition to the visitor's IP address and browser's User-Agent string to facilitate spam detection.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save your name, email address and website in the cookies. They are used for your convenience so that you do not have to re-enter your details when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for a year.
We also use third-party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, and the browser you used to visit our site.
This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Jakarta real estate ads to someone in Jakarta, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequently visits cooking sites).
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited those website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is done so we can recognize and approve follow-up comments automatically, instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
