What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

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

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

We only collect personal information, such as your name and email address, if you choose to submit it to us. If you send a message to an e-mail address on this website or complete a website form and submit data to us, we will only use that information to respond to your message or to fulfill the stated purpose of the communication.
