When you leave a comment on our website, we collect the data you provide in the comment form, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to help us detect and prevent spam. We may also use an anonymized hash of your email address to check if you have a Gravatar account and display your profile picture if you do.
If you upload images to our website, please be aware that they may contain embedded location data that can be downloaded and extracted by other users.
We do not share your personal data with any third parties, except in the case of a password reset request, where your IP address may be included in the reset email.
If you leave a comment on our website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).
If you have an account on our website or have left comments, you have the right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you or request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. Please note that we may be obliged to keep some data for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
