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; that is, name, email address, website address, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address 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

There is a contact form on the blog and using the form means we’ll be collecting data that include your name, email address and the message itself. Do know that you’ll be providing this information only when you use the contact form and not just by visiting the website.

Contents from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content, especially videos from YouTube. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
