Data Collected & How We Use It
We do not directly collect or store any of your personal information when using our Sites. We do not even generate web server logs as we do not want to directly have any form of your personal information such as your IP Address.
However, we are a business that operates by providing free content supported by advertising. As such, our Sites use Google AdSense to sell and display advertising and collect relevant information to support that goal. In addition, we use Google Analytics to track where you go on our Sites so we can view generalized statistics such as how many people read a particular article or visit the site in general.
This works by embedding special HTML code provided by Google into our Sites which allows Google to collect information about your browser, platform, IP address, and the page you are visiting to push relevant advertisements to the page and track a page view for visitor statistics.
In addition, some of our Sites support the capability to comment on an article. We leverage the popular Disqus service to provide this functionality. As such, Disqus may see your browser, platform, IP address, and the page you are visiting when they are serving up the comments for an article. Any time you comment on an article you are also using the Disqus service who operates the comment capability end-to-end. Your comments and personal visit information are never stored on Advanced PC Media LLC servers.
