Your privacy is critically important to us. At 10up, we have a few fundamental principles:
- We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
- We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
- We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information on your website is shared publicly (or kept private), indexed by search engines, and permanently deleted.
- We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information.
- We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
Who We Are and What This Policy Covers
- Our websites (including 10up.com and EightDayWeekPlugin.com);
- Our other products and services that are available on or through our websites (including support requests for Eight Day Week at EightDayWeekPlugin.com); and
- Other users’ websites that use our Services, while you are logged in to your account with us.

Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services and Solutions, to communicate with you, or to make our Services and Solutions better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
- Eight Day Week Contact Form: We ask for basic contact information in order to follow up on any requests for help or more information. Specifically, we ask you to provide a name, email address, and information about your request. You may also opt in to receive other news and information directly from 10up, but we do not require that.
- Communications With Us (Hi There!): You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with our engineering team on GitHub, or email us.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
- Log / Analytics Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information.
How And Why We Use Information
Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:
- To further develop and improve our Services and Solutions—for example by adding new features that we think our users will enjoy or will help them to streamline their print workflow in WordPress;
- To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users adopt our Services and Solutions, which helps us improve Solutions like Eight Day Week and make them easier to use; and
- To communicate with you, for example through an email, about offerings by 10up we think will be of interest to you, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date on 10up and our products.
Legal Basis for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that: (1) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or (2) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or (3) We have a legitimate interest in using your information–for example, to provide and update our Solutions, to improve our Solutions so that we can offer you an even better user experience, to safeguard our Solutions, and to communicate with you, to better understand user retention and attrition, and to monitor and prevent any problems with our Solutions; or (5) You have given us your consent–for example before we request permission before sending you news and information not directly related to Eight Day Week.
How We Share Information
We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
- Third Party Vendors: We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us. This group includes vendors that help us provide our Solutions to you (like postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us communicate with you), and those that help us understand and enhance our Solutions (like analytics providers), who may need information about you in order to, for example, provide technical or other support services to you. We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments in order to share information with them.
- Legal Requests: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
- To Protect Rights, Property, and Others: We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 10up, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
- With Your Consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction.
- Aggregated or De-Identified Information: We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Solutions.
- Published Support Requests: And if you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
Information Shared Publicly
Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your public profile, Articles and Print Issues, other content that you make public using Eight Day Week, and your “Likes” and comments on other websites, are all available to others. Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.
How Long We Keep Information
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it–which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information–and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to one of 10up’s websites, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to 10up’s websites and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites. After the thirty days are up, the deleted content may remain on our backups and caches until purged.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:
- Limit the Information that You Provide: If you contact us, you can choose not to provide certain pieces of information on the contact us form.
- Opt-Out of Electronic Communications: You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us. Just follow the instructions in those messages. If you opt out of promotional messages, we may still send you other messages, like important Eight Day Week update changes or legal notices.
- Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies: You can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies before using 10up’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of 10up’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
- Request access to your personal data;
- Request correction or deletion of your personal data;
- Object to our use and processing of your personal data;
- Request that we limit our use and processing of your personal data; and
- Request portability of your personal data.
If you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, scroll down to How to Reach Us to, well, find out how to reach us. EU individuals also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.
