What Personal Data We Collect and Why

Comments

When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form. We also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help detect spam.

We may provide an anonymized 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 is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Upon approving your comment, your profile picture becomes visible to the public in your comment’s context.

If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided.
