What personal data do we gather, and why


When visitors leave comments on our site, we’ll store the data present in the comment forms, as well as the IP address and user agent of the commenter’s browser, to help us with spam detection.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also known as hash) may be sent to the Gravatar service to verify if you’re using it. Gravatar’s privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is approved, your profile picture will become visible to the public, attached to your comment.


When uploading pictures into the website, you should avoid using pictures with geotracking data attached to them (EXIF GPS). Visitors may download and extract the geotracking data from your pictures.
