If you choose to sign up to our email newsletter, fill out a form (to contact) or leave a comment on any article published on TeslaStir.com, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or website address. This is required to respond to your queries or send you email updates. You may, however, visit anonymously or choose not to subscribe to email updates.

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. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

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.
