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.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the third parties (including Gravatar) to see if you are using it.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. Every comment left on FinanceandStoicism is a part of the public domain.
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.
FinanceandStoicism uses functional cookies and external scripts to improve your experience. The explanation for each is included below.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
