What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

While we do not share your data with any third party, we do make two exceptions: 1) Information from any threats posted against anyone or any organization will be saved and reported to appropriate law enforcement agencies, and 2) Information gained about any illegal activities will be saved and forwarded to law enforcement agencies.

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.

Where we send your data

We do not send your data anywhere or to anyone. Our policy is to ensure the greatest degree of privacy possible.

Additional information

How we protect your data

The Scientology Money Project is self-financed and does not need to depend upon sales or advertising or any other revenue sources. While we do accept donations, donors receive nothing in return except our appreciation. We will never sell or share your data. Due to the sinister nature of the Church of Scientology, our policy is to never disclose your data to any third party. Alternately, if you choose to publicly disclose your personal data on this website you assume all liabilities for doing so. The decision to “go public” is an individual decision that only you can make for yourself. Please act in your own best interests and govern yourself accordingly.

What data breach procedures we have in place
We use a multi-layered security system based upon recommendations from WordPress. These are paid software security programs and are automatically updated. If security were to ever be breached, we would publish a public notice when we confirmed that a data breach occurred and provide the information we obtained.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive no third party data nor do we request data from third parties.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We use Askimet to filter out spam comments. Each and every post from a new poster must be reviewed by the site’s owner before it is approved for publication.
