When visitors post comments on the site, we gather the information shown in the comments form as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid in spam identification. To determine if you are utilizing the Gravatar service, an anonymized string produced from your email address (also known as a hash) may be sent. The Gravatar service privacy policy may be found here. Your profile image is shown to the public in the context of your comment once it has been approved.


If you submit photographs to the website, you should avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website may download and extract any location data from the website’s photographs.
