ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Learn How to Build a Computer collects certain information from and about its users three ways: using Google Analytics, directly from our Web Server logs, and with Cookies.
1. Google Analytics
Learn How to Build a Computer uses features of Google Analytics. Google Analytics does not store any visitor specific data and we will not use visitor specific data in any way related to Google Analytics. We use this information to better understand our users and do not at this time use any targeted advertising. Statistics such as IP Address, pages visited, demographics, location, and other basic user information is reported for us to better make informed decisions about how to make our site more relevant and easy to navigate for our users. Google offers an opt-out installation that works with your browser if you do not want your data reported through Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/ and we encourage anyone using our site to opt out if they are so inclined.
2. Web Server Logs.
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
- Your Internet protocol address.
- The kind of browser or computer/smartphone/tablet you use.
- The number of links you click within the site.
- State or country from which you accessed the site.
- Date and time of your visit.
- Name of your Internet service provider.
- The web page you linked to our site from.
- Pages you viewed on the site.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
Learn How to Build a Computer reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to our website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Any information that you enter into a contact form that is submitted is saved into our website database and is used to communicate with you via email about the message you’ve sent.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you’ve left comments on this website, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
Learn How to Build a Computer has the discretion to occasionally change this privacy statement at any time without notice. When we do, we will also revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy page; such changes shall then be effective immediately. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
