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 would visit the other website.
SiteStats of FlitterFever.com are gathered via WordPress and Google Analytics, with subservices of Jetpack and MonstersInsights. Website visitors can opt-out of tracking via an integrated link shown on our website. As a user of Google Analytics, we can only see anonimous information of users, expressed as numbers, so no names or place of residence of users for example, but only for example how many from country x and how many via desktop or mobile.
The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged by iThemes Security to check for malicious activity and to protect this site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information is retained for 14 days.
