The Privacy Policy Explains the Personal Data We Collect and Why

The Personal Data Protected by our Privacy Policy: Why We Collect The Data


When visitors leave comments on the site we only collect the data shown in the comments form. We also get the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection and prevention. This helps keep our beautiful KeepClimbing people safe.

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. If you are, your image will be pulled into your comment. 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.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to KeepClimbing can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on Keep Climbing, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
