What personal data we collect and why

Comments

As a general rule, comments are disabled on this site. However, when they are not, the following information indicates any collected data: when visitors leave comments on the site, the system collects 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.

Media

Whenever a user (with proper grants) uploads images to the website, EXIF GPS (information about the image and location of the photographer) might be included. This basically means that visitors can download and extract location data from uploaded images. If you don’t want users see that kind of information, you may consider to delete metadata before uploading your media files.
