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: https://automattic.com/privacy/

After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

2) Media

If you upload images to the website, it is advised that you avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. If you do, visitors to the website are able t download and extract any location data from images on the website.
