We recognise the importance of our visitors’ privacy and we aim to preserve privacy by all means. The information furnished herewith will inform you about the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use (operate) and visit this website, and how we safeguard your information. You can be assured that your personal information is never leaked or sold to third parties, and it is well protected by us.
Log Files. The same as with most other websites, we collect and use data contained in log files. The information in log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser used by you to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), your site visit time and the pages browsed by you throughout our site.
We also visualise third party advertisements here to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons, when they advertise on our site, that also sends information to these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) including your IP address, your ISP, the browser used by you to visit our site and, in some cases, whether you have installed Flash.
Such an application is generally applied for geotargeting purposes, e.g. showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York or showing certain ads based on specific visited sites (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART Cookies. We may also use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visiting a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). The cookie is used to serve your specific ads and your interests (“interest based targeting”).
The ads served are targeted on the basis of your previous browsing history. For example, if you are viewing sites for visiting Las Vegas, you may also see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as a hockey site. DART uses “non personally identifiable information”, which does NOT track your personal information, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
You have the option to opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising, by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, it can affect your ability to interact with our site as well as other websites and it may include the inability to login to services or programs, such as forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements a new cookie will be added.
