When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect data displayed in the form of comments, as well as the IP addresses of visitors and the user’s browser agent bar, to help detect spam.

An anonymous string created at your email address (also called a hash) can be provided to Gravatar to find out if you use it. Gravatar’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.
