THIRD PARTY ADVERTISEMENTS
Nearly all websites store data about visitors in server logs.
This data includes an IP address — a unique number that is linked with an internet connection. Other details may include: the website a visitor came from (eg. Google), the pages they viewed, how long they spent on the site, which country they're in and the size of their screen.
This helps us to improve the content on our site. For example, if we see that a sizeable percentage view the site on a small mobile phone screen, we may decide to introduce pages that work better for them.
You are not personally identifiable to us purely from the data that is stored in the server logs.
PRIVACY OF THE ABOVE DATA
The only people with access to this data are the webmaster of the site and the technical staff of the web hosting company.
Ordinarily, no details that might help identify a visitor would ever be shared with a third party. An exception could be if a person was involved in posting abuse, attacking the hosting server or other illegal activities.
The logs are stored in a part of the web server that is password-protected. Currently the server is located in the USA.
