These project-specific websites (or “microsites” as they’re sometimes known) include those that start with globalreportingcentre.org/, followed by the name of the project. For example, globalreportingcentre.org/turning-points or globalreportingcentre.org/reputational-attacks. Our only other project-specific website hosted at a separate domain is milliondollarmeds.com.
We use Cloudflare Web Analytics on all of our websites. Cloudflare Web Analytics automatically collects certain pieces of personal information, such as how you use our websites (including which pages you visit), the country you’re located in, and the type of device you’re visiting on.
This information gives us a general sense of how many people are visiting our sites, what they’re engaging with, and where they’re arriving from — such as a media partner’s website or a social network.
On our main organizational website, we use the following WordPress plugins that may share your personal information:
We use select features of Jetpack to optimize our website. One feature we do use collects personal information when a user tries to log in to our website’s back-end administration area.
Data Used: In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
Data Synced (?): Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.
Embedded content and external links
Our websites may also contain external links to other websites. We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites or services.
Content delivery networks
Our websites often use content delivery networks (CDNs) to load third-party libraries, such as React, Tailwind CSS, or Chart.js more efficiently. We also use CDNs (specifically Jetpack’s) to cache and serve images and static files more efficiently. CDNs are commonly used across the internet, but we ultimately have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party sites or services. For more information on CDNs, visit cloudflare.com/learning/cdn/what-is-a-cdn.
Personal information may be collected using the following, or similar, technologies:
“Cookies,” which are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit allaboutcookies.org.
“Log files,” which track actions occurring on our websites, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
“Web beacons,” “tags”, and “pixels” which are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
‘Do Not Track’
Please note that we do not alter our data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser. There are however free applications and web browser extensions available that automatically block data collection from most sites, including ours.
These include DuckDuckGo, which is available at duckduckgo.com/app. Some web browsers, such as Firefox (mozilla.org/en-US/firefox) and Brave (brave.com), also block trackers and enable privacy-focused settings by default.
