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.

We keep contact form submissions and the data provided on the forms for customer service purposes, but we do not share the information submitted through them to third parties for marketing purposes.
