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.

An anonymized string created from your e-mail 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.

E-mail

If you e-mail the operator of the site, the content could be published on the blog, with all personally-identifying information removed, and I will usually ask for permission requested first but reserve the right to publish useful information for other users.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, e-mail address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

This site links to outside websites.  I am not responsible for those other sites, and they have their own privacy statements.
