What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When DATTA SA members leave comments on the forum we collect the data shown in the post, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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: Gravatar is used if you decide to change your profile picture on the website.

We collect information about you during the signup process as well as some basic activities such as the dates you make purchases, login to the site, or cancel/pause/resume your subscriptions with us.


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

How we protect your data

What data breach procedures we have in place

If a data breach occurs we will notify all members advising of the breach and precautions to take in order to safe guard their accounts.
