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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Whenever you submit an inquiry or try to contact me through a contact form, I collect and retain information regarding the form like the email address, your name, subject for contacting (general, user-experience, broken link etc) and the issue itself.
