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, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

This site uses the Akismet anti-spam service which only collects information about visitors who make comments on the site and the only collects the personal data needed to carry out its core function of protecting against comment spam. The information collected may include the commenter’s IP address, Site URL, name, username, email address, and the comment itself). Akismet data is not retained for very long and is classified as a “legitimate interest” use of that data. The Akismet policies can be viewed by using the “This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed” notice below the comment form.

Who we share your data with

Third parties have access to your data as noted within this agreement.

An anonymised 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.

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
