Cookie Baking & Privacy Policy

Where Am I?

Drunken Tailor (https://tailor.strangealchemy.net) is part of the Strange Alchemy Network, a personal-projects collective.

What Am I Leaving Here?

I am a super-private person, so I know it’s important to you, too! To that end, I will never ask for any more information than absolutely necessary to allow you to interact with the site, and that only if you choose to do so.


Comments are the only interactive feature enabled on Drunken Tailor. No registration is required – in fact, there’s no user registration available here at all!

When you leave a comment on Drunken Tailor, WordPress collects the data shown in the comments form. It also collects your IP address and browser user agent string to assist with 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


WordPress suggests that if you attach an image to your comments, you should avoid using images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included, as other visitors can download and extract that data from images displayed here.

What Kind Of Cookies, And Will There Be Juice?

There is no juice. :/

If you leave a comment here, WordPress may give you the chance to 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.

Embedded Content From Other Sites

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 you had 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.

I don’t have access to or control over the cookies, data, or other activities of said third-party sites. Sorry. :/

But! There are currently no adservers, social media widgets, or similar services that might also want to third-party cookie or otherwise track you embedded in this site! Huzzah!

Sharing Is Caring, Except Sometimes Not

You have my Brownie Scout’s honour that I will never share your information with anyone else unless required to by law (and you can bet I won’t be happy if that day ever comes) – that means you won’t be sold to advertisers or other marketers, added to any type of list (without your explicit consent), or otherwise used for spammy or nefarious purposes.

I don’t even use your data myself, unless you leave a link to your own website along with your comment, and then you might get a return visit – but that’s why you drew me a map, right? ^.^

What’s The Shelf Life On Those Cookies, Or That Other Data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so WordPress can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

The cookies created when you opt to save your comment-form details will last for one year.

You Have Rights Over Your Own Information!

If you have left comments on Drunken Tailor, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data WordPress holds about you, including any data you have provided to the site. You can also request that any and all of your personal data be erased (though as mentioned previously, this does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes).

Where Does That Data Go?

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

This Policy, Is It Set In Stone?

Maybe, maybe not! It depends on what future updates bring. In the event that I do need to update this policy, I’ll do my best to alery you via that little popup on the front page!
