Data Collected by Other Services
WordPress and Plugins Used in the Construction of the Website
The subscription and comment process used by WordPress.com collect information that you voluntarily submit when you subscribe to the blog, a post, or comment, or if you "like" a post. We have access to that information.
If you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, following or tweeting about us on Twitter, or giving us a ‘+1’ via Google Plus, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a cookie for this purpose.
In some cases, where a page on our website includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a cookie even where you do not click a button. As is the case for all cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks, just as those social networks cannot access cookies we set ourselves.
