Privacy Policy

Here at The Words Gremlin, privacy is important, which is why this policy aims to make things as transparent as possible. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Since this is a free WordPress plan site, it uses both Jetpack and Akismet
  • Jetpack handles the cookies, which you have the ability to accept or reject, when you interact with the following features: comments, subscriptions, and the mobile theme
  • Jetpack may collect your name, email, IP address, and website through those features (especially comments), and you can read more on their cookie policy here
  • Akismet helps filter out spam, and also collects emails, usernames, IP addresses, and website URLs in order to do its job and keep the spam out of the comments
  • WordPress also collects stats, like page views, link clicks, referrers, search engine terms, and IP addresses so I can see which posts are getting the most views, which countries they’re being viewed from, and how they were found; it does not allow me to see specifically who has viewed a post
  • If you use the Words Gremlin contact form, I personally am able to see your name, email, website, and the comment you send
  • I will only keep information from contact forms for two weeks after the last period of contact, or will remove such information on request

This policy could update at any time without notice, but will always be as transparent as possible about the way your data is handled.
