Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in the server’s log files (strictly secured from public access). The information in the log files include your IP address (Internet Protocol), your ISP (Internet Service Provider), the type of the browser that you have used to visit our site (such as Chrome, Firefox, etc), the time you visited our site, which pages you have visited, and the amount of time you have been on the site or a specific page of it. Our website’s server receives and records information from your web browser when you interact with our website, including your IP address and cookie information. This information is used (only by the website and the server owner) for traffic analysis for optimization, fighting spam, malware and other security aspects of the site’s and server’s general health.

Generally, the server automatically collects usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Site. We use this data in aggregate form only, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally in any way. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often individuals use parts of this site so that we can analyze and improve them.

Cookies

This site uses Google Analytics to analyze traffic, make improvements, and keep the site in a good health. Google analytics uses first-party cookies to report on user interactions on Google Analytics customers’ websites. The IP addresses of all the visitors who are analyzed through Google Analytics on our site are automatically anonymized.

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites.

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.

Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products. Please see below for more information.

For other browsers, please consult the documentation that your browser manufacturer provides.

Although not recommended, you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on in your browser to opt-out from Google Analytics Cookies.

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 exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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

Advertising cookies

This site uses advertising cookies and may also use cookies for targeted ad serving (personalized ads), through Google’s AdSense, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site which uses Google Ads. The cookie, in some cases, is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The following paragraph explains how this is possible:

The ads served will be targeted based on your Google account information or your previous browsing history through the cookies. For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting New York, you may see New York hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site. The cookies use only “non personally identifiable information”. They do NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.

* The “personalized ads” are served only to users outside the EEA (European Economic Area).

You can also install a browser plugin from Google, to keep “ad personalization” always disabled: Chrome plugin | Firefox plugin | Internet Explorer plugin
