We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so. For example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.We collect this information from two sources: if and when you provide information to us and automatically through operating our Services.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us directly. This is the case when you contact us. When you communicate with us via form, email, phone, or otherwise, we store a copy of our communications (including any call recordings as permitted by applicable law).
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically.
Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, including the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services.
We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions.
We use the following types of cookies on our Site:
We use information about you for the purposes listed below:
To protect our Services and the public
For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations; and protecting the rights and property of Automattic and others, which may result in us, for example, declining a transaction or terminating Services.
For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.
For example, by emailing you to respond to any messages you sent us thorugh our contact form.
Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU-data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
We share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy.
We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
We generally discard information about you when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which we collect and use it — described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information — and we’re not legally required to keep it. For example, we keep web server logs that record information about a visitor to our Site, like the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to our Site and investigate issues if something goes wrong on our Site.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. We monitor our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
