What personal data is collected and why


When visitors leave comments on the site, the data present in the comments form, as well as the IP address and browser user agent, are saved to help spam detection.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to verify that you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


When uploading images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded geolocation data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract geolocation data from website images.
