Who we are
Your privacy is very important to us and we don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it and we don’t store personal information on our WordPress server unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Converge Digest collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Converge Digest’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Converge Digest’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Converge Digest may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Converge Digest also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
For those who wish to subscribe to our paid subscription email service, including corporate site-license subscriptions or free trial subscriptions, our delivery is provided via MailChimp, which handles subscribe and unsubscribe requests. In doing so, certain data such as email and IP addresses and time/data information may be collected for processing your request and confirming the changes.
Converge Digest may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Converge Digest may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Converge Digest may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Converge Digest does not disclose personally-identifying information.
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.
Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
Suggested text: 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. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
