Private Information

We consider publication of certain information to be a privacy violation. Information that we consider to be private include:

  • Social Security or national ID numbers (e.g. passport).
  • Credit card numbers.
  • IP addresses.
  • Unlisted/non-public physical addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers.
  • Birth dates.
  • Passwords.
  • Unauthorized, private nude images.

If you find private information published on a WordPress.com blog, you can report it from the abuse form.

Examples of information which we don’t consider private are:

  • Photos of people (with the exception of the above).
  • Publicly available physical addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers.
  • Names.

Contact information for domains

All domains require valid contact information, but you can purchase private registration so it does not display to the public.
