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.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive automated blacklists of IP addresses and address ranges from several anti-spam organisations. We assume no curatorial responsibility for the contents of these blacklists. These blacklists are only used to prevent malicious login attempts to our management console, and to prevent individuals from performing denial of service attacks by repeatedly requesting pages many times per second.

We also receive GeoIP databases mapping user IP addresses to rough geographic regions; this allows us to track site visits to country of origin. At no point is this information personally identifiable – it is only ever processed as an aggregate dataset.
