Who we are

WordPress Accessibility Day is a volunteer-led, nonprofit conference. Our website address is: https://wpaccessibility.day.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Speaker, Sponsor, and Volunteer Applications

We gather a variety of information from our forms, including E-mail, Name, Job Title, Company Name, Country, Time Zone, Online Profiles (WordPress.org, Twitter or LinkedIn), Personal Bios, and details of your talk.

This data will be kept for the purposes of communication between the Event Organizers & Speakers, Sponsors, or Volunteers. Some data will be publicly used through the website for listing purposes such as publishing lists of event speakers and talk descriptions, event volunteers, or event sponsors. Any published data will be cleared with you prior to publication.

Comments

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. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment if you have created one on the Gravatar website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Matomo Analytics

We track visits to our website with a free WordPress plugin called Matomo Analytics. All data collected is stored only within our own MySQL database, no other business (including Matomo and it’s team members) can access any visitor information, and logs or report data will never be sent to other servers by Matomo. The data we track is all anonymized and only provides a high-level overview of the pages visited and sources of traffic.

Analytics Opt-Out

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

Embedded content from other websites

Specific data like browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, etc might be collected by third-party services, such as Gravatar.com. You can read more about Gravatar’s data collection.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Speaker, sponsor, and volunteer applications are stored in a Google spreadsheet after they are submitted. Submissions are sent to Google Sheets using Zapier.

Email list opt-ins are sent to MailChimp, our email list provider. MailChimp is an Intuit company.
