WordPress, by default, does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users.

Personal information is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds.  When visitors leave comments on this site, we collect data shown in the comments, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.  This allows any follow-up comments to automatically be published instead of holding them in a moderation queue.  Per your request, you may receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.  You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you.  This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative purposes.

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 at hhtps://automattic.com/privacy/.  After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
