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. An anonymized string, made based on your e-mail address (also called a hash) can be send to the Gravatar service when you make use of that service. The privacy policy page you can find here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment has been approved your profile photo will be visible public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data actively with any third party. You have to realize though that this is a public website and that any text or material you place on the site will be visible for other visitors / third parties.

How long we retain your data

For visitors that leave comments: indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the data they provide in their profile. All registered users can see, change or delete most of that data at any time except their login name/nickname.

What rights you have over your data

If you are a registered user or have left comments on our site you can request to see or download the data we have about you. Typically for visitors that have left comments the data will be their email address, any IP addresses assigned to them at the time of leaving the comments and the user agent strings of the browsers they used. The rest of the data is public as published by the visitors. You can also request “to be forgotten” and we will erase any personally identifiable data we have about you, typically a year after it was published. Of course this excludes data we need for administrative or security purposes or if we are required by law to retain some of the data.

Where we send your data

For visitors that leave comments we may send the data to a spam detection service.
