What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors write comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user-agent string (which identifies the browser), to support spam detection.

You can create an anonymous string from your email address (called a hash) and submit it to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible with your comment.

If you are a registered user and are uploading photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website may be able to download photos which are stored on this website and extract their location information.

If you have an account on this site or if you have written comments, you may request that we export your personal information, including any data you have provided to us. In addition, you may request the deletion of any personal information we have stored about you.
