What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Email Addresses

When visitors subscribe to the Build5Nines Weekly newsletter or send us an email, we collect their email address and optionally their name. These are stored with the purpose of sending the email messages to the mailing list. The mailing list of email addresses is not shared with any third-parties directly, and is not sold either to spammers.

All email addresses can easily be unsubscribed, simply follow the unsubscribe links in the emails from Build5Nines.


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.

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

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.

Who we share your data with

When you visit a website in the network, there are website analytics being tracked for all visits. The purpose of the analytics is to get an idea of what content is being visited, and other normal analytics information so we can better author content visitors are interested.

These are the analytics tracking components that are embedded within content pages of the Build5Nines network of sites:

  • Google Analytics
  • Facebook Pixel

We reserve the right to change who we share your data with for the purposes of running the websites in the Build5Nines network of sites, and sending all email communications subscribed to.

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 (if any), 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.
