What Personal Data We Collect & Why We Collect It


This site collects demographic and interest reports through Google Analytics using Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers.  You may opt-out of any website collecting this information by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

This site uses IP anonymization in its implementation of Google Analytics.  For more information, please click here.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect 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.  After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies.  These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.  These cookies will last for one (1) year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will 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 (2) days, and screen options cookies last for one (1) year.  If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two (2) 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 one (1) day.


Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles).  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.


We collect user-submitted information via the following on-site forms and external links:

The user-submitted information collected by our forms is stored on this site and is not shared with any third parties.  This information is saved for an indefinite period of time in order to aid Diverse & Resilient staff in following up on user requests, but we will honor requests to delete previously-submitted user information.

If you have previously submitted information via one of our forms and would like for that information to be permanently deleted from our site, please email with your first and last name as well as the email address you supplied when filling out the form.  We will do our best to process your request within one (1) business week.


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.  For more information on how to remove location data from images, please click here.


We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service.  The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

Who We Share Your Data With

How Long We Retain Your Data


If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.  This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile.  All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).  Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

User data that is shared with Google Analytics is saved for fifty (50) months.
