Site Cookies:

A cookie is a small textual file, stored by the visitor's browser on behalf of a website. It has an expiry date.

In order to comment or submit a height guess, the website sets cookies for the name and email address you provide. This means you don't have to type them in every time you want to add a comment or submit a guess. They are set to expire after 1 year.

Other cookies (page id votes) are set for keeping track of which pages you have left a guess on, so that it's easier to see which pages you've already voted on.


Visitor Comments and Votes

What we collect:

This website stores data supplied by visitors who submit public comments or supply a height guess.

Beginning in January 2018, a visitor must include a Name and Email when submitting their comment/vote.

How we use it:

To uniquely identify commenters, we store their Name, Email and IP address in our database.

Comments are stored, along with date, IP address and the username.

When supplying votes, these are stored in an aggregated fashion (running average). There is no permanent record of what your guesses were, only an indication of whether you have already submitted a vote for any celebrity, in order to discount duplicates.

Email - we do not publish your email address, nor will we ever use it to contact you.

What is Shown:

When displaying visitor comments, we display a Username, submission date and the comment itself.

CelebHeights is an entertainment news and commentary database that simply lists what it believes are the estimated heights of celebrities and comments upon instances where height differences would indicate a different height from the publicised height. The information is provided for entertainment only. In no way does it intend that users should rely upon ANY of the height information provided for any purposes whatsoever. (i.e. if you are on Who Wants to be a Millionaire and the question is 'What height is Mel Gibson', don't rely on this site - I provide over 4000 actual official quotes and heights from resumes, so you could rely on the 'official', but possibly inaccurate in themselves heights.).

I compile the heights based from publicised heights, on my own findings having watched films, read opinions and quotes and seeing celebrities in person. I also try to find officially listed heights from star biographies, official sites.
