What personal data we collect and why we collect it

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.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Cookies are small files that are created on your hard drive through your browser to enable us to recognize your browser and remember certain information. Cookies generally do not contain any personally identifiable information.

FrontierProtocols uses cookies for several different purposes:

  • Security: To improve the security related to logging into the site, and to protect the website more generally.
  • Authentication: To identify when you visit and how you navigate our site.
  • Status: To identify whether you are currently logged in to the site.
  • Advertising: To serve advertisements that are relevant to you.
  • Analysis: To analyze the performance and use of our website.

We use third-party service providers to serve ads or help us better understand our visitors. These third-party providers may store cookies on your device.

Most web browsers give you options to refuse to accept cookies, as well as delete cookies that have already been created on your browser.


One of the third-party tools we use to understand our site visitors better is Google Analytics, which is used to measure traffic and usage trends for the site. Google Analytics uses cookies to gather data. Here is the privacy policy for Google:

Email newsletter

If you sign up for our newsletter, your email information will be stored with a third-party email provider called Aweber. This third-party provider will store data related to your email subscription, including your email, IP address, user-agent, and information about whether you opened different newsletters. Here is the full Aweber privacy policy:

You may unsubscribe from these emails at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom of the email. We periodically delete all data and information stored about unsubscribed users.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
