Content & Settings.
In order to display accurate information about your site in places such as notification emails and the WordPress.com Reader, Jetpack syncs the following information:
- Permalink structure
In order to allow the creation and management of content from different locations and devices (e.g. from the WordPress.com desktop or mobile apps), information about the following is also synced:

We also sync the following data:

This enables a number of features, including protecting your comments from spam (if using Akismet), displaying notifications, showing content in appropriate categories in the WordPress.com Reader, as well as adding the ability to edit our menus and post data from WordPress.com (including through the desktop and mobile apps).

Millionaire’s Digest Applications & Forms.
Like most website operators, the Millionaire’s Digest 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. The Millionaire’s Digest purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
The Millionaire’s Digest also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our website. The Millionaire’s Digest 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 commenters who run their own blog/website IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the Millionaire’s Digest Staff Team (Authors and Editors) where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information.
Certain visitors to the Millionaire’s Digest who choose to interact with our website requires us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Millionaire’s Digest gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask first-time visitors who don’t have a Millionaire’s Digest account to sign up for one either at WordPress.com or directly here at the Millionaire’s Digest so we can be provided with a username and email address if you are commenting on our website. Those who engage in transactions with the Millionaire’s Digest, such as buying our magazine(s), for example, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, the Millionaire’s Digest collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Millionaire’s Digest. The Millionaire’s Digest 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.
The Millionaire’s Digest may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most popular articles, or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information.
The Millionaire’s Digest discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Millionaire’s Digest behalf or to provide products and services available on our website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Millionaire’s Digest products and services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Millionaire’s Digest will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Millionaire’s Digest discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Millionaire’s Digest, third parties or the public. If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our products and services. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support or answer other users who may have the same request. The Millionaire’s Digest takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If the Millionaire’s Digest, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Millionaire’s Digest 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 the Millionaire’s Digest may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to the Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they are marked as false positives or missed spam, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives and missed spam.
