Log Files

Like many websites, ArticleThirteen utilizes log files. These files do little more than record website visits, typically a routine practice for hosting firms and a component of their analytics. Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), date and time stamps, referring and exit sites, and click counts are all contained in the log files. This data is gathered for demographic research, trend analysis, site administration, and user movement tracking. IP addresses and related information are not linked to any information that personally identifies individuals.

Cookies & Data

We employ cookies on ArticleThirteen.com. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive, helping us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors. For example, you would save time while on our site when we used a cookie to identify you and eliminate the need for you to log in with a password repeatedly. To improve our users’ experience on our site, we can also track and target their interests thanks to cookies.

There is no connection between using a cookie and any personally identifying information on our website. Only when you voluntarily provide any personal information—for example, by entering your email address to sign up for a newsletter—is it gathered.

Through the settings of your web browser, you can turn off cookies if you so want. Detailed information about cookie management for specific web browsers can be found on the browsers’ respective websites.


ArticleThirteen offers a newsletter to which users may subscribe voluntarily. This service is provided through MailChimp. To subscribe, users must provide their email addresses through the subscription form available on our website and confirm their subscription through a double opt-in process. ArticleThirteen does not share this information with third parties.


Through the settings of your web browser, you can turn off cookies if you so want. Additionally, the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string are organized to assist in spam detection. An anonymized series created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to determine if you are using it. Following the approval of your comment, your profile picture becomes visible to the public in the context of your comment.

To help prevent spam, we utilize a service called Akismet on ArticleThirteen. Comments submitted through this service are not stored on our servers unless flagged as false positives. In such cases, we reserve the words long enough to improve the service to avoid future false positives. To understand how Akismet processes your comment data, click here.
