An encrypted channel created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using the service.

After validation of your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.

How long is your data stored 

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows subsequent comments to be recognized and approved automatically instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal data indicated in their profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except their username ice). Site managers can also view and edit this information.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our website, you will be offered to save your name, email address and website in cookies, for your convenience, so that you do not have to enter this information again if you post another comment later on. These cookies expire after one year.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

Our Services or communications may contain links to third party websites, over which we exercise no control, including the form of embedded content (eg videos, images, articles, etc.).
