Who We Are

Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It
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. Gravatar is a service for providing globally-unique avatars (those tiny pictures that appear beside a person’s name when they leave a comment on a website). Since 2007, it has been owned by Automattic, and has been integrated it into the WordPress.com blogging platform.
When you leave a comment and after it has been approved by the blog moderator, your profile picture (gravatar) is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
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.
