There are many different ways you can use our services – reading our publications, searching through our publications, and sharing information with other people. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then learn about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to Internetpress, so whether you are new to Internetpress or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, and which publications you might like.
Unless you purchase something from us, your visit to Internetpress is anonymous. We do use the Google Analytics service to track how many visits we get, where the visits are from, and our pages you visit, but the user of the browser remains anonymous to Internetpress.
However, like most publishing businesses, we depend on selling space on our pages to advertisers. We use Google Adsense as our source for advertisement revenue. Google has a sophisticated advertisement service that involves measurement and collection technologies that are made available to their advertisers and Internetpress. Those technologies will collect and store information in your web browser. That information is used for creating feedback for Google’s advertising customers. To learn what information Google collects, please visit google.com and read their privacy policies.
We also use Google’s Custom Search Engine services. It involves placing some code on one of our web pages that presents a text box for you to search the content in our website. This code interacts with Google’s computers to provide you with a capability to search our website. That interaction does involve reading your seach queary so the search engine can provide you with search results.
We collect information in the following ways.
We collect information about the Intenetpress services that you use and how you use them, like when you visit a particular page at our website, when you leave to visit an advertiser's website, and when you use the sharing buttons (Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Reddit for example). This information includes:
Device Information. We collect device-specific information (such as your operating system version, and unique device identifiers, but no mobile network information such as a phone number).
Log Information. When you use our services or view content provided by Internetpress, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes details of how you used our service, such as your search queries, Internet protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL, and cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
Location Information. When you use Internetpress services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies, supplied by Google, to determine location. But what we get is just a name of a town, city, or country. We do not collect, nor do we know, any personal residential addresses unless you have provided a delivery address when you purchase something from us.
Cookies and Similar Technologies. We and our partners use various Google technologies to collect and store information when you visit Internetpress, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with advertising space that we offer to advertisers. We use the Google Analytics service to help us analyze the traffic to, from, and within Internetpress' website only.
We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect, improve, and to develop new services. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant publications, search results, and advertisements.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we and Google collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can click on the upper-right hand corner of an advertisement to control what appears in that adspace.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by Google or advertiser through Internetpress. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, the custom search engine could be affected.
Many of our pages use social networking technologies to let you share information with other people. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including Google. The social networking service you subscribe with may provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.
