Forms and Payments

We collect subscription payments through Stripe, their Privacy Policy can be found here: https://stripe.com/privacy.

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. This information (IP Address) subsequently gets erased from our log files within a week after the comment is approved, as we wipe these storage files weekly.

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.
