Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include a unique anonymous identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

We use “cookies” to collect information. We might also make use of these technologies to keep an eye on traffic, improve the Sites and make it easier and relevant for your needs. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; however, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service. In case the cookies are deleted by you or in case you set your web browser to decline cookies, some features of the Site might not work or perhaps may not work as designed.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses other tracking technologies or cookies to help us analyze how users interact with and make use of the Websites, compile reports on the Websites’ activity, as well as offer other services related to Websites activity and usage.

The technologies used by Google may collect information such as the IP address, time of visit, whether you’re a return visitor and any referring site. The Websites don’t use Google Analytics to gather info that personally identifies you.

The info produced by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.

We may partner with third-party advertising and marketing companies to better provide advertisements about goods and services that could be interesting to you. These advertisers may use cookies alone or perhaps in conjunction with some other tracking or web beacons technologies to collect info about you when you use our Site. They might collect info about your internet activities over time and across various sites along with other online services. They might make use of this info to provide you with interest-based advertising or perhaps any other targeted content.

These online advertising partners don’t have access to use your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or any other personally identifiable information from us. They may, nonetheless, use persistent identifiers to anonymously track your Internet usage across some other sites in their networks beyond our Site. While we restrict the further use of information, such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to identify you, unknown to us.

Third-party ad serving companies along with other unaffiliated advertisers, also display advertisements in our website. As part of their service, they might put a specific cookie in your computer or utilize other data collection and tracking technologies, to collect info such as the IP address, browser type, the server to which your computer is logged in to, the area code or zip code associated with your server, and whether you responded to a specific advertisement. We don’t control these third parties’ tracking technologies, how they could be used, or the pieces of information they may collect, and we’re not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of those third parties. Remember to visit the sites of those businesses at the links above to review the privacy policies of theirs. We might add or even change the list of third-party ad servers from time to time, and we encourage you to check the section for changes.

This site utilises caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.

Your device or browser may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Since a “Do Not Track” compliance protocol hasn’t yet been finalized, Picky Beast information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide to customers, will go on to operate as described in this privacy policy, whether or perhaps not a don’t Track signal is received.

DoubleClick Cookie

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our Service. Google’s use of the Double-click cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Service or other web sites on the Internet.

You may opt-out of the use of the Double-click Cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the Google Ads Settings web page: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).

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 same way as if the visitor has visited the other website

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
