What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called anonymous) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. You can find the Gravatar service privacy policy here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from the images on the website.
