What personal data we collect and why we collect it


If you create an account with us, we will store information you provide to us on our secure servers. We don’t ask for much information from you other than what we need to give you an account. When signing up, we only ask for your name, email and a password. This is purely so you can sign in and connect on News Natter.

Any content that you post, whether it be activity stream updates or comments, is created by you. Please ensure you follow our terms and only post acceptable content. Our website is reviewed regularly and if our terms aren’t followed, this could result in your account being suspended.


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. This applies to both visitor and News Natter Accounts.

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 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.

Contact forms

Our contact page has a form which enables you to send a message to News Natter. We only correct required information from you which consists of your name, email address and message. If you have a News Natter Account, please try to use the email address associated with your account. This give us the option to reply by account message.

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.


We use Analytics to track how our website is being used. This helps us focus on specific content types and enables us to improve areas of our website. To help us achieve accurate statistics, we use a combination of Google Adsense and JetPack to gather our analytical data.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your information with any third parties. We do use analytical software are mentioned about but these are well know providers and so specific information which could identify you if even shared.

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, 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.

What rights you have over your data

What data breach procedures we have in place

If we were ever to have a breach on our website, we will inform users immediately and reset their passwords. We’re hoping that we never have any breaches but if we do, we will also post it on the front page of our website.
