What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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. In the event that a user registers with a social media account or comments validating their comment with a social media account we collect the data that the social media service provider offers under their API.
A social media comment posted may also post to that particular social media account. This includes likes and shares, etc..
