What data is collected and stored
Some very basic visitor metrics, including anonymized ID, date, referring URL, and target page for each unique visit, are collected using the GDPR-compliant plugin Statify. This data is stored in the site’s database for 30 days. We also collect the date and URL of certain posts and pages accessed by visitors in order to better keep track of useful redirects and 404s. This data contains no user information and is stored in the site’s database for 7 days.
