Do you have a privacy policy?

Not exactly. We don’t collect any information, however WordPress (the company that hosts our website and provides the software we use to make it) collects some of their own information. Most of the information they collect is from us, while we manage the website. However, when you leave a comment on an article, they keep a bit of information. Here’s what they have to say in their privacy policy:

  • Interactions with Other Users’ Sites: We collect some information about your interactions with other users’ sites while you are logged in to your account with us, such as your “Likes” and the fact that you commented on a particular post, so that we can, for example, recommend posts we think may interest you. As another example, for Intense Debate users, we collect information about the comments you make while logged in to your account, and use that information to, for example, tally up statistics about your comments (check them out in your dashboard!) and provide the information about your comments in your Intense Debate public profile.

Keep in mind that this only applies to users with a WordPress account. When you leave a comment, please keep in mind that you have the option to share your email, which enables you to receive an update if someone replies to your comment. We won’t share it with anyone, and WordPress takes care of sending out the email.

You may also have noticed that when you visit our site for the first time, a cookies notification banner appears. You can read our cookie policy right here.

If you have a lot of free time, you can read over the Automattic (the developers of WordPress and Intense Debate, among others) privacy policy here. The bit that will most likely concern you is located down the page a bit—just about here.

What if I want to sue The Faux Report?

Please do not do that. The First Amendment protects satire as a form of free speech and expression. We use invented names in all of our stories, except in cases where public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental.
