When you leave comments on South House Designs, you have the option of providing your name, blog or website url, or other information. This information becomes a permanent part of the website when you provide it with a comment, and can be seen by other visitors to the site.

We also capture 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.

These include: Internet Protocol addresses (IP addresses), browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Other than the IP address, this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.  IP address information is linked to personal information and may be used in an effort to block a “banned” user from accessing the Site.
