What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, WordPress collects 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 also 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.

Disqus

Disqus already offers a strong Do Not Track (DNT) framework. This includes both honoring DNT settings from browsers and allowing users to opt-out of tracking within Disqus for targeted advertising and content recommendations. Currently, users with Disqus accounts can update their settings to opt-out of tracking across all devices and browsers where they are logged in. Logged-out users or readers without Disqus accounts can also opt-out of tracking for individual browsers.

A key piece of Disqus’ planned updates is to expand on this framework and create a new feature called Privacy Mode that users can opt-in to from the Data Sharing Settings page. When a user is in Privacy Mode, Disqus will not collect or process any personal data, as defined by GDPR. In cases where Disqus does not have a lawful basis for processing personal data they will apply Privacy Mode to requests from IP addresses associated with an EU country.

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.
