Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Current Editorials we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Current Editorials collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Current Editorials’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Current Editorials’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Current Editorials may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Current Editorials also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Current Editorials only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Current Editorials’ websites choose to interact with Current Editorials in ways that require Current Editorials to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Current Editorials gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Current Editorials collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Current Editorials. Current Editorials does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Current Editorials may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Current Editorials may monitor the most popular post on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Current Editorials may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Current Editorials does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Current Editorials uses cookies to help Current Editorials identify and track visitors, their usage of Current Editorials website, and their website access preferences. Current Editorials visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Current Editorials’ website, with the drawback that certain features of Current Editorials’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Current Editorials, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Current Editorials goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third-party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Current Editorials may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Current Editorials and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
