Like many other Web sites, our site makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
We may also use other advertising networks (other than Google AdSense), whose privacy policies will always be listed on their respective sites. Most of these companies belong to the Network Advertising Initiative. Our visitors may opt-out of behavioral advertising methods by visiting networkadvertising.org.
Google Analytics is a free service provided by Google Inc. for gathering statistical information about visitors to a website. This information generally includes IP addresses, geographical location of the IP address, pages visited, how the visitor arrived at the webpage and computer information, such as the operating system and browser used. Google Analytics is implemented through a cookie, which is placed on the visitor’s computer coupled with code in the webpage, which collects visitor data and relays it to Google’s servers for processing.
Our visitors can opt out of Google Analytics by using the opt-out service provided by Google: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
