GLARminY Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you.

We are particularly careful with the information about your experience with eye strain or light sensitivity that you provide in comments, via the contact form, or directly through e-mail.

Below is our Privacy Policy.

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 Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
