What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The information we collect may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences; transactional data, such as purchase information; and technical data, such as information about cookies. This information is collected so that we can create your User Profile or complete your purchase order on our website.

We may pass this information on to a third party for the purposes noted above. We never see your credit card information on our system, it is securely passed on to our vendors, Authorize.net and PayPal for the purpose of completing your order. See below for full disclosure on information collected while shopping on our site.

Your name and email address may be passed to our third party vendors, MailMunch and MailChimp, for the purpose of sending you email newsletters or marketing emails that you sign up for through various Contact Forms on our site. We may also share your name and email with giveaway partners if you submit a giveaway form on our site. Their use of your information is subject to their privacy policy, and we have no control over their use, but we do ask them to not share your information.


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 profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

We use the Smush plugin, which sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

Contact forms

Contact form submissions are kept for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes. The data collected on contact forms are not stored on the site, but are sent to a corporate email through our vendor, Google Business Services. The plugins we use for contact forms are Contact Form 7 and MailMunch.


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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Information about your visit to our site is collected through Google Analytics to help us see website traffic, such as page visits, clicks on links, location, demographics and visit frequency. The only information that is retained is your IP address and a cookie that tells us how often you visit our site.

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.

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.
