What personal data we collect and why I collect it

Blog Comments

Mama Travels Earth collects minimal information from users posting comments – typically a name (real or alias), website and email address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment, but your email address and privacy will always be kept secure.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Newsletters and latest posts are distributed through a Mailchimp mailing list. Any personal information stored on a mailing list is solely kept for the distribution of blog posts and newsletters – I don’t share personal information with third parties. At the bottom of every post or newsletter is an easy way to opt-out.
