Gravatar’s privacy policy can be found at Once a comment is approved, the user’s profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of the comment.


We advise users to avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) to our website as other visitors may be able to download and extract location data from these images.

How Long We Retain Your Data
