What data we collect and why we collect it

Like most website operators, Elevated Mum collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Elevated Mum’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Elevated Mum’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Elevated Mum may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Elevated Mum also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts. Elevated Mum only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

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.
