What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect data displayed on the comment form, the visitor’s IP address and the browser user agent to help detect spam.


An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be given to the Gravatar service to see if you use it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture can be seen publicly in the context of your comment.

With whom we share your data

How long do we store your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are maintained indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize and approve the follow-up comments automatically and not hold them in the 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 (unless they cannot change their username). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

What rights do you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left a comment, you can request to get personal data in our export file, including the data you provided to us. You can also ask us to delete personal data about you. This does not include data that we must keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where do we send your data

Visitor comments can be checked through an automated spam detection service
