Privacy Policy Update

As part of our commitment to privacy and transparency, we’re updating our Privacy Policy for Simperium.

“Your privacy is critically important to us.” These are the first words of our Privacy Policy, and words we live by when designing and building our products.

Starting on September 24, 2018, Simperium will be covered in our Privacy Policy for the products and services from us, the folks at Automattic. No more fragmenting: We’re retiring Simperium’s separate Privacy Policy — our privacy practices should be straightforward and easy to understand, so now you only have to understand one.

Here are some of the other updates you’ll see:

  • Our Privacy Policy includes real-world, concrete examples to give you a clearer picture of how we collect and use personal information.
  • We provided more information, in the Choices section, about how you can limit and control the data that you provide to us when you use our services.
  • There’s also added information about your data protection and privacy rights, how long we keep information, and how we handle transfers of personal data outside the EU.

Our new Privacy Policy will take effect on September 24, 2018. We’re announcing the update now, to give you time to take a look at it.

If you continue to use our services on or after September 24, 2018 you acknowledge that your use will be subject to our new Privacy Policy.

And we’d love it if you follow us on privacy.blog for more information about privacy and transparency at Automattic.

Although we updated the Privacy Policy, our core values remain unchanged: We strive to be fully transparent. We keep the data we have a reason to keep. And we are thoughtful about how we collect, use, and share personal information.
