Hi! This is the privacy policy for WP Glossary. It contains information about what information is stored about you when you visit and interact with the site, why the information is stored and what I use it for (nothing nefarious, promise). WP Glossary is run by Anders Norén.

What personal data we collect and why


As a visitor, you have the option of sending in corrections for any word in the glossary. When you click the “Submit Correction” link, you’re presented with a form with fields for your name, your email and your comment. The name and email is included because if I decide to incorporate a correction into the word definition, I would like to be able to write a short message to say thanks. That’s it.

The only details stored about you when you submit the form are the values you enter into the fields in the form itself. No IP address, no user agent string – just the values in the fields.

Embedded content

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.


Who we share your data with

WP Glossary uses Google Analytics to keep track of visitor statistics for the site. The “Anonymize IP” feature is activated for the site, which means that your real Internet Protocol address is never stored to disk by Google.

How long we retain your data

If you submit a correction, the name, email address and message you include are retained indefinitely.

What rights you have over your data

If you have submitted corrections, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor corrections may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
