Latest update: May 22, 2018.

Here at My Blurred World, the privacy of my visitors is extremely important to me. This privacy policy outlines what information I collect on my blog and how I use it.

Types of data collected≠

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.

An anonymised 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.
