When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments are checked through Akismet, an automated third party spam detection service.
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.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
We use contact forms to collect information enabling us to provide our services to you. (Ninja Forms)
