To cover the internet-lawyer statement:
We do not collect any personal information about you. This may change in the future (we’d like to set up an e-mail list to let you know when we post fresh content), but right now we collect no information that could identify you personally (such as your name, e-mail, telephone number, etc.)
Through connecting our site with Google, we do collect information about you that is non-personal. Some examples are:
- Details about your demographic (age, gender, etc.)
- Where you’re connecting to us from
- General connection info (such as time of access, time spent on the site, pages visited, if you’ve connected before, IP address)
- Terms that you searched to find us on Google
Currently, we do not collect cookies. (If you’re wondering whether we’re girl scouts trying to sell you baked goods, ‘cookies’ are small text files that your own computer stores when you visit certain websites. These store your actions and options selected on each site, which the website can use to give you a better user experience). We also do not use Web Beacons (another form of collecting information).
Collection of Information from Children
This site is not aimed at children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect information from children.
If you are under 13 years old, please do not use the site or send us any information. Instead, try a much more fun website called Kongregate – it’s got great free games!
How we use your information
We try to use any of the information we collect to both improve the Appliance Analysts website, and improve your user experience with us. We will never use your information for anything other than improving our quality.
Some examples of ways we may use your information could be:
- Identifying our biggest demographics, and tailoring our content accordingly
- Reviewing what pages our audience like the most, and trying to replicate that quality on lower-performing pages
- Investigate any suspicious activities that could be a threat to our website (like a lot of connections from what seem like spam or malicious sources, rather than from normal readers)
- Disclosure of Information
As we do not collect personal information, we also do not disclose personal information.
We may disclose non-personal information if we believe it will help us improve the site. For example, getting third-party experts to help us analyse our website data, so that they can provide us with suggestions on how to further improve the website.
Comments and other Public Information
We have included a comment system on our posts, because we want to encourage user participation and discussion. Please remember that these comments are public, so make sure you don’t write anything that you don’t want to be public.
If for any reason you are receiving correspondence from us that you want to stop, just send me a quick e-mail at [email protected] and I’ll personally make sure we aren’t sending you anything you don’t want.
Are you a California Resident?
The state’s civil code (Section 1798.83) demands that we disclose any personal information we share with third-parties to any user who requests to know that information. We do not currently share or collect any personal information, but if you want to be sure, shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] and I’ll check and clarify for you.
