What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form 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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your Gravatar profile picture, if one exists, is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you send us a message using our Contact Us form, we will assume, as stated on that page, that you are giving us permission to include on Wildfire Today your name and your comments unless you specifically tell us otherwise.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Analytics

We do not share personal information with third-parties nor do we store information we collect about your visit to this site for use other than to analyze content performance through the use of cookies, which you can turn off at anytime by modifying your Internet browser’s settings.  Jetpack tracks  post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs, search engine terms, country, and performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that the plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.).

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service before they are reviewed and moderated by an administrator.
