What personal information we collect and why we collect it


When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the information displayed on the comment form, as well as the visitor's IP address and user agent string (which identifies the browser) to help detect spam.

Your e-mail address can be used to create an anonymous string (also known as a hash) that can be passed to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment has been released, your profile picture is publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this site, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website may download photographs stored on this website and extract location information from them.
