# What Personal Data Is Collected And Why? #
Analytics
My site collects my visitor’s specs (IP address, browser build, OS, origin country, search engine and search words used) to help me understand my audience and their needs better.
If you don’t want to help me make my site run better for you and bring you content you are interested in, you can opt out by using the prompt that shows up. If you do decide to opt-out of any future tracking, a cookie will be set up in your browser to remember this choice for one year.

Comments
When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email 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]. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so my site can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
