Who we are
BuzzFeed Web is a general blog that publishes original content on a regular basis and covers a wide range of useful topics, as well as offering a paid guest post service.
What kind of personal information do we gather and why do we collect it?
We invite you to join us in contributing original and informative content that will be useful to individuals who visit our website or are looking for the greatest information on the internet.
Avoid submitting photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) if you’re uploading images to the website. Any location data from photographs on the website can be downloaded and extracted by website visitors.
We collect the data given in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to aid spam detection.
Your profile image is shown to the public in the context of your comment after it has been approved.
Please use the Contact Form to contact us if you require any assistance or information.
You can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies if you leave a comment on our site. These are for your convenience so you don’t have to enter your information again when you post another comment. This batch of cookies will last for a year.
We will set a temporary cookie if you visit our login page to see if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie includes no personal information and is deleted when your browser is closed.
Embedded content from other websites
This site’s articles may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites functions just as if the visitor had actually visited the other website.
How long do we keep your information?
If you post a comment, both the comment and the metadata associated with it are saved eternally. This is so that any subsequent comments will be recognized and approved automatically rather than being held in a moderation queue.
We also retain the personal information that users supply in their user profiles if they register on our website (if any). At any moment, any user can see, modify, or remove their personal information (except they cannot change their username). The information can also be viewed and edited by website administrators.
What rights you have over your data
You can request an exported file of the personal data we possess about you, including any data you have provided to us, if you have an account on our site or have posted comments. You can also ask us to delete any personal information we have about you. This excludes any information that we are required to store for administrative, legal, or security reasons.
Where we send your data
An automatic spam detection service may be used to check visitor comments.
