Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site the system collects 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. This website uses a WordPress comments system with increased security.

Media

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.

Privacy Policy – Contact Forms

Any information put in contact forms. English News holds supportive user privacy as an extremely high priority and will always protect the privacy of supportive readers and especially supportive volunteer writers or content creators who will never ever have their privacy violated by English News.

To clear this, clear your internet browser files. The cached version of the website is cleared by English News and replaced with the new website each time a new article is published.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. video players, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website (e.g. Youtube video viewing cookies) when interacting with those video players.

This website includes ranking and SEO plugins that will record numbers for your visit, including time spent on pages, clicks between pages and outbound clicks. These include Google, Bing, Yandex, Alexa and the default WordPress site metric system.

These websites are known to collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website (e.g. Youtube, Bitchute).

Analytics

Analytics use cookies to record website traffic numbers and website specific page usage.

Privacy Policy – Comments & Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained. You can edit your own posts to remove them, however some systems may record the initial input. English News through WordPress can access the IP address of the poster. This is so we can recognize friendly commentors and approve any follow-up comments or block hostile commentors automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. English News reserves the right to publish or use for security purposes information about hostile commentors or contactors in any form as determined by English News.

For users that register on our website, the system records the personal information users provide in their user profile (do not include identifiable information). All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username) unless an account is locked or deleted. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Do not post any identifiable information.

The internet is filled with automatic website copying services and bots that will in seconds copy any public data you post. E.g. Archive.org will record the entire website periodically. Unless you are already a public figure do not post identifiable information such as your name, do not in any situation post location information even broad area info.
