Comment Data Collection

When visitors leave comments on our website, we collect the information provided in the comments form, along with the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam detection.

Gravatar Service

An anonymized string generated from your email address (hashed) may be shared with the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible alongside your comment for public viewing.

Media Uploads

If you upload images to our website, please avoid including location data (EXIF GPS) in the images, as other website visitors can potentially extract this information from the images.

Cookies Usage

Our articles may include embedded content from other websites, such as videos, images, and articles. Embedded content from external sites functions in the same way as if you were visiting those sites directly.

Data Sharing
