These logs also contain information about ‘referrer’ information if you clicked on an external link to a webpage. These logs are used solely for performance, site administration and security reviews. They are not sold or shared in any way to third party organizations.
When visitors leave comments (when comments are not disabled or closed) 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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
