We like you all, so we wanted to let you know about some Privacy Policy changes


Every so often as we introduce new features and options on reddit, we revisit our Privacy Policy to clarify and update how we use your data on reddit. We care about your privacy, and we know you do, too.

We are changing our Privacy Policy to prepare for an upcoming mobile app made by reddit and to clarify how location targeted ads affect your privacy. The full text of the new policy can be found here. See the end of this announcement for the TL;DR version of the changes. We also made minimal edits to our user agreement to fix some typos and to make it apply to reddit apps.

This revised policy is a clear and direct description of how we handle your data on reddit, and the steps we take to ensure your privacy. Yes, we are going mobile, building an app that covers new ground and complements our site and other existing apps. No, it is not available yet, and we'll be sure to let you know when it is. We want everyone to feel comfortable using an app made by reddit, so we are building it with the same user privacy protections we have for reddit today. We do want to let you take advantage of all the great options mobile can offer, so you’ll have the ability to opt-in to more features. We will be collecting some additional mobile-related data that is not available from the website to help improve your experience.

As we did with the previous privacy policy change, we have enlisted the help of Lauren Gelman (/u/LaurenGelman) and Matt Cagle (/u/mcbrnao) of BlurryEdge Strategies. Lauren and Matt have done a fantastic job crafting and modifying the privacy policy.
Lauren and Matt, along with myself and other reddit employees, will be answering questions in this thread today about the revised policy. Please share your questions, concerns and feedback about these changes – AUA (Ask Us Anything).

The revised Privacy Policy will go into effect on May 15, 2014. We want to give you time to ask questions, provide feedback and to review the revised Privacy Policy before it goes into effect.

We allow ad buyers to tailor ads based on a user’s country or metropolitan area. We are now signaling posts that have location targeting on them. We are adding more information about how location targeting affects you in the privacy policy.

  • reddit has allowed ad buyers to tailor ads to your computer’s general location (your country or metropolitan area) as signaled by your computer’s IP address. We think this is a privacy friendly way to provide you with more relevant ads. We continue not to create or contribute to any profile that tracks you across the web.
  • We will let you know when an ad is location-based with simple icons (http://www.reddit.com/wiki/targetingbycountrycity). You should know that interacting with a location-based ad could reveal your computer’s general location (since some ads — like for a music venue in San Francisco — are only seen in some geographies).

We will be launching reddit Mobile apps. The information they collect will be governed by the same privacy practices governing the reddit website.

  • If you use the app without signing in to reddit, it will store your in-app activity, but not link it to your reddit account.
  • If you use an app while signed in to reddit, we will associate your app-based activity with your account as if you were browsing the reddit website.
  • As is the case with our website, we only use information collected via the app to provide our service, and we never disclose it unless required by law or in an emergency.
  • The app uses Google Analytics so we can learn how groups of users interact with it.
  • Deleting your reddit account may not delete the information collected by the app if you previously backed up the app’s information elsewhere.
  • A reddit app may also allow you to post to social media, including Facebook or Twitter, but reddit will not connect to the servers of those services, share information with those services, or post on your behalf.
