At Toneup Trek, we are committed to safeguarding your privacy. This Privacy Policy outlines the information we collect from visitors to our website and how we use and protect that information. By using our website, you agree to the terms of this policy.


When visitors leave comments on our site, we collect the data provided in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string for spam detection purposes.

An anonymized string generated from your email address (also known as a hash) may be shared with the Gravatar service to check if you have an associated profile picture. The Gravatar service’s Privacy Policy can be found at: Once your comment is approved, your profile picture may be displayed publicly alongside your comment.


If you upload images to our website, please ensure that you avoid including images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can potentially download and extract location data from these images.


When you leave a comment on our site, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are designed for your convenience, eliminating the need to re-enter your details when posting subsequent comments. These cookies are set to last for one year.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you edited. This cookie expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites:

Articles on our site may include embedded content such as videos, images, and articles from external websites. This embedded content functions in the same way as if you were visiting the external website directly.

These external websites may gather data, utilize cookies, incorporate additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content. This applies even if you have an account and are logged in to the external website.

Data Retention:

Comments and their associated metadata are retained indefinitely. This practice allows us to identify and approve follow-up comments automatically without holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if applicable), their personal information is stored in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (excluding changes to the username). Website administrators also have the capability to view and edit this information.

Data Processing:

Visitor comments may be subject to automated spam detection through a spam detection service.

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy. Your privacy and trust are of the utmost importance to us.
