Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are the Adelaide Robotics Academy, and our website can be found at


When our visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the information displayed in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection.

We may also provide an anonymised string created from your email address (also known as a hash) to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy can be found here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to our website, please avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site, you can save your name, email address, and website in cookies for convenience, so you don’t have to enter your information again when leaving another comment. These cookies will be stored for one year.

We will set a temporary cookie when you visit our login page to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Once you log in, we will set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display preferences. Login cookies are valid for two days, and screen options cookies are valid for one year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. The login cookies will be removed if you log out of your account.

An additional cookie will be saved in your browser if you edit or publish an article. This cookie does not contain personal data and only indicates the post ID of the article you edited. It will expire after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Our site may include embedded content (such as videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. This embedded content behaves 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 the embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Sharing

Your IP address will be included in the password reset email if you request a password reset.

Data Retention

If you leave a comment on our site, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely, so we can automatically recognise and approve any follow-up comments without having to hold them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (but they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

Rights Over Your Data

If you have an account on our 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, except for any data we need to retain for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Transfer

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