Cookie Policy Update

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, today we released a significant update to our cookie policy on Automattic.com.

We released our first cookie policy in 2015, with the aim of providing our users and site owners more information about the cookies we set on our sites, and the information those cookies collected and used. This updated edition of our policy expands on our earlier work, including more detailed information on how and where we use cookies, with more specific examples. In addition, we provide more details on the third party ad partners we work with, and the operations of our internal analytics tool.

Finally, you may notice our new, attractive cookie notification banners.

Cookie Consent Banner

Our cookie policy ties in to these banners, explaining how they operate, and detailing the kinds of cookies that we place by default, as well as the cookies that we place only after a site visitor gives their consent.

We hope that you find this information useful, and for more details, check out the policy itself at automattic.com/cookies. This isn’t the end of the story – just an iteration – as we’ll continue to add more information as time goes on.
