Spotify Player and "Follow" Button

Some pages on this website contain an embedded Spotify player, "Follow" button, or both. Spotify is based in New York City, NY, USA. Accessing these pages may relay some of your personal information to Spotify. If you are logged into your Spotify account, playing something in the web player will be seen by Spotify as a regular play from your account and the resulting metrics will be treated as such.

Data Used: IP address, user ID (if logged in), username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.

Activity Tracked: Post and page views, video plays, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this module is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the Javascript file used for tracking stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, Javascript files, CSS files, etc.). The site owner has the ability to force this feature to honor DNT settings of visitors. By default, DNT is currently not honored.

Fraudulent login attempts

Any and all attempts to log in to the backend of this website will be stored with a time stamp and IP-address so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing the site's sensitive information. This information is forwarded to the Akismet service (owned by Automattic).
