What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If you make an online donation, we ask you to provide some personal information. We’ll ask you to provide information including your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit card/payment details. We’ll use this information to:

  • Send you confirmation of your donation
  • Respond to your requests or questions
  • Process payments and prevent fraud
  • Send you news and updates about our project, if you choose to receive them

If you make donation, we will store this information, including the amount of your donation.

When visitors leave comments on the blog 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. See the Gravatar service privacy policy at After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
