What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we only collect masked data by the Disqus platform, these are visitor’s masked IP and e-mail address to help combat spam or put permanent or short term sanctions on users that violate our Community Guidelines.

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.


If you leave a comment on our site you will get a cookie from the Disqus platform to keep your logged in. For more information you can read their cookie policy.

For users that submit and publish articles we 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Additional information

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We use a web application firewall to make automated decisions to block suspicious activity. In simple terms: If you are some Joe sniffing at the gate on a daily basis, odds are our automated system may pick up your behavior and act on it. We reserve the right to report repeat offenders to local law enforcement.

If you feel you have been erroneously blocked by our automated firewall, you may contact us via mod.newsviews@gmail.com so we can take the case under review.
