Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets out how Digital in the Round (hereinafter known as “Website,” “we,” “us”) protects and uses collected information. The practices referred to in this Privacy Policy refer to any personally identifiable information, anonymous data collection, and reporting

The Information that We Collect

We collect personally identifiable information, including but not limited to your name and your email address. We do not collect any personally identifiable information unless you give your explicit consent. 

We collect non-sensitive data, such as your IP address. We use “cookies” to collate statistics on how you use our site. This is a standard practice that many commercial websites employ to monitor site usage. Our Cookie Policy explains this in more detail. 

We may collect non-personally identifiable, anonymous information like the number of website visits we receive. These statistics are used internally only and do not contain personal information. Nor can personal information be derived from these statistics.

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How We Use Collected Information

  • The information that we collect is only used for the purposes that we clearly state before we ask you to provide the information. 
  • We do not send promotional emails to your email address unless you have opted in for this service. We make it explicitly clear to you what you are signing up for. 
  • We use the information to customize and improve the user experience and to formulate relevant content for our readers. 
  • We may use the information in answering queries or providing feedback to you. We may also use non-personally identifying information to formulate surveys or questionnaires. 
  • To handle complaints or provide operational notices.

With Whom We Share Collected Information

We do not distribute any form of personal information. We do not rent, sell, or share the information that we collect. 

Your personal information may only be disclosed if the following conditions are met:

  • If we are legally required to do so;
  • To protect the rights and property of Digital in the Round;
  • Should our records show that fraudulent and deceptive activities are practiced, and we must notify the government;

All appropriate electronic and physical measures have been taken to prevent unauthorized access or the disclosure of your personal information.
