This Privacy Policy is only valid for visitors to our website with regard to the information that they share and/or collect in Techno Talkers. This policy does not apply to any information collected offline or via channels other than this website.

Comments

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.

Generally, visitors won’t be able to add images, videos, or other media files to this website.
