1. Who We Are
Our website can be found at https://greghamlyn.com. As the proprietors of this platform, we ensure the privacy and protection of our visitors’ data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
2. The Information We Collect
When visitors interact with our site by leaving comments, we collect the data input into the comments form, along with the visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser user agent string to aid in the detection and prevention of spam.
We also utilize an anonymized string, or hash, created from your email address, which could be provided to the Gravatar service to verify its usage. Following the approval of your comment, your Gravatar profile picture becomes visible to the public within the context of your comment. For more information about Gravatar’s privacy practices, please visit: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
We recommend that if you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as these can be downloaded and extracted by website visitors, potentially exposing your location details.
