Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are the personal website for Caleb Hodes. Even though this project and website is built and maintained by only one person, Caleb, we are using the word “we” throughout this legal page because we don’t want to accidentally mislead you. Weird, right?! Got to love the legalities of living in our world, and the poorly designed “safety” labels one must slap onto their artwork.

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


So we do not have comments enabled on this site. We don’t generally believe they add to the experience in any way. But hey, let’s play it super safe. If we did enable comments, here’s some nice legalese for you about how we would enable that.

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.


Funny, we also do not have it enabled where you, the visitor, can upload images to this personal website. But you know, let’s slap some legalese sticker in here and save our asses just in case something happens.

If you 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


Again, we don’t do comments, but if we did, read below.

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.

Also, you better not have an account on this personal website. Are you a 133t h4ck0rz or something? Let’s pretend we intentionally allow you to have an account. Read below *yawn*.

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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment (hahahaha), 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 (hahaha) may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

No. This is a personal website. Find me in one of my linked social media presences and reach out to me there.
