Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect very limited information about you when you interact with the site:

  • By posting a comment to a comic or post;
  • By voting in a poll; or
  • By signing up for the email list.

For example, the plug-in we use for polls logs IP addresses of each person who votes. And leaving a comment logs whatever information you put into the comment box.

Anyway, we collect this info to detect spam and vote rigging (haha), and, you know, sending you emails because you asked for them. We still haven’t gotten around to setting up ads or anything like that, so we’re pretty limited here.


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.

We use Akismet for spam detection, so apparently we’re supposed to tell you this too:

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, 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).


I don’t think it’s possible for you to upload media, but if somehow you can 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.

Contact forms

I don’t think we have one? Someone let me know if we do.


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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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.

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.


I’m pretty sure the only thing we know how to analyze is basic traffic, etc. I suppose we could go back through various comments and polls and figure out who voted for what based upon IP address, but that seems like a LOT of work. And it’s not gonna happen any time soon. I’m just this guy with a webcomic.

Who we share your data with

We use some automated software for comments and such, as noted above, but other than that, we’re not really collecting or sharing your data with anyone.

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 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 we send your data

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

How we protect your data

First of all, we barely collect much of it in the first place.

Our web server is encrypted and all that.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the event that we learn of a data breach, we intend to notify everyone who may be affected shortly after being alerted to said breach. We’re not sure how long that would take, we’ve never done this before.
