Our Data Collection and Privacy Policy for Comments

Comment Submission: When individuals leave comments on our website, we collect the information they provide in the comment form. This includes the content of the comment itself.

Visitor Information: In addition to the comment data, we also collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This information is used to assist in spam detection and to enhance the security of our website.

Gravatar Integration: We may create an anonymized string (referred to as a hash) from your email address. This anonymized string may be shared with the Gravatar service to determine if you have a Gravatar associated with your email address. You can review the Gravatar service’s privacy policy at this link: Gravatar Privacy Policy.

Profile Picture Visibility: Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture, if associated with your Gravatar, will become visible to the public within the context of your comment.


When uploading images to the website, it is advisable to refrain from including embedded location data (EXIF GPS) within the images. This is because visitors to the website have the capability to download and access any location information stored in the images on the site.
