We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any other service provider from whom you request services. If you visit a third party site, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information.

Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
