Personal Data We Collect And Why We Collect It


We collect the data shown in the comments form when visitors leave comments on the site, and we also collect the visitor’s IP address & browser user agent string to detect spam.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service. This is simply to see if you are using Gravatar. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Upon approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public as related to your comment.

Gravatar Hovercards

This feature sends a hashed value of the user’s email address to the
Gravatar service in order to retrieve their profile image. This happens if logged in to HumblyNomadic.com or WordPress.com, and/or if you submit a comment using an email address affiliated with a valid Gravatar profile.
