I made this page to demonstrate to you that your privacy is important to me. Read on and I’ll discuss the type of information that www.freecellphonelocator.net collects from its visitors and why it does so.
Routine Information Collection – First of all, you should know that pretty much all websites, including this one, keep track of some basic info that is associated with the computers used to visit websites. They are often just keeping track of information about the computer that was used to visit the site. Some examples of the types of data that websites might collect are the IP addresses that the visitor came from, how the visitor found the website, which web browser the visitor viewed the website with, whether they had ever visited the website before, what the screen resolution for the computer that the visitor used was, what time the visit was, and more.
This website uses server log files as well as Google Analytics to collect and store the abovementioned information. You can learn more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data by clicking here: How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps.
Now, before you go put on your little “tin foil” hat and get all worried about big brother watching your every move, you should know that this information can’t be used to find out your personal identity. It’s mostly used to help the designers of websites optimize their site for the types of visitors they get as well as for other administration and maintenance purposes.
I have no interest whatsoever in collecting data such as your home address, what your name is, how many kids you have, where you work, who you’re married to, etc. I may, however, be interested in knowing things like whether you visit my website through Firefox or Internet Explorer because if I find out that most of you are visiting through Internet Explorer, I may want to take extra precautions to make sure that my website displays perfectly in that browser. If you choose to provide me with personal information about yourself, I will never sell or share your information without your permission.
Another example of the type of information I might be interested in is what country that the majority of my website viewers are from. This type of information could help me to provide content that is specifically applicable to the types of people who are frequenting my site.
Hopefully you’re starting to see the picture here. Okay, if you’re clear so far, let’s move on.
In other cases, tracking mechanisms such as cookies, as well as scripts, and/or web beacons may be used by various advertising partners or other third parties to track information about website visitors. In cases like these, the information collected can be used to display advertisements that particular website visitors might find more appealing or interesting. Sometimes the data collected may be used to ensure that I get credit for the sale of a product or service (and paid a commission) should you happen to click on a link that was displayed on this website and you ended up buying something on the website that the link took you to. You should know that this type of tracking is handled directly through the advertisers or third parties and consequently, these actions are subject to their individual privacy policies.
You can go to the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website where it’s possible to opt out of several of these cookies in one handy location. Note that it’s not possible to opt out of “all” cookies here. If you would like to visit that website, simply do so by clicking here: networkadvertising.org/choices.
Need More Information? – I hope I have done an adequate job of clarifying how various tracking mechanisms may be used on my website but if you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Simply send me an email by clicking on the tab that is labeled “Contact” located at the top right section of my website (on mobile devices the contact link may be found at the bottom of your screen).
