Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we, our partners, and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when website are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

Both website and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

Cookies are used for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the “like” or “follow” button on a post, for example).

Many of the cookies are only set if you are a registered user (so you don’t have to log in every time, for example), while others are set whenever you visit the website, irrespective of whether you have an account.

For more information on the choices you have about the cookies used, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

User Sites

In addition to the cookies set on this site, cookies are also set for the Site Stats feature. This tallies the unique numbers of visitors to a site, as well as the number from specific geographic locations. A visitor is counted when we see a user or browser for the first time in a given period.

Advertisements from Third Parties Through Ad Programmes

Some services may be ad-supported, showing ads on our sites. We may also choose to place ads on this site through an ad program in partnership with third party vendors. As part of the operation of that ads program, they use cookies to collect certain information. Advertising cookies enable them and their partners to serve ads and to personalize those ads based on information like visits to this sites and other sites on the Internet.

Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behaviour such as the length of time they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third party plugins.

Internal Analytics Tool

In order to better understand how services are used, we monitor certain user activities that take place within hosted sites, including page views and clicks on any links used when managing a site via our dashboards.

Each one of these actions is termed an “event.” Analytics events are attached to every account and are handled via a first party system that we (the website host) owns and maintains. In general, it records the following data for each event: IP address,  user ID and username, user agent, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code.

We uses this information to improve products, make marketing more relevant, personalize the visitor experience, and for the other purposes described in the Privacy Policy.

You may opt out of the analytics program through your user settings. By doing so, you won’t share information with the analytics tool about events or actions that happen after the opt-out, while logged in to your account. Note that opting out does not disable the functionality of the actions tracked, but for an event or action after you opt out, we will not have other data associated with that action or event in the analytics tool.
