The Blog and Web Apps sections have a comment form in which (besides the comment itself) only the a name (may be a pseudonym) and an email address are required. The email address is never displayed on the website to anybody other than the site admin. Besides the user-submitted details, we also store your IP address.
Two external services are used with the comment form. The Gravatar service only gets passed an encrypted email address. The anti-spam service Akismet gets passed all user-submitted details, plus the IP address, in order to check it for spam markers.
Any details submitted via the contact form (notably the required name and email) will be kept private and confidential.
