Privacy Policy

2014 - reading the sign

At Skipology.com I consider the privacy of my visitors to be extremely important. This privacy policy document describes in detail the types of personal information collected and recorded and how it is used.

Log Files

Like many other Web sites, Skipology.com makes use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Cookies

First Party Cookies

These are cookies that are set by this website directly.

Google Analytics: I use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on Skipology.com. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of Skipology.com and is not tied to personally identifiable information. I therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service at http://www.google.com/analytics/privacyoverview.html


Third Party Cookies

These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on Skipology.com. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site that allow visitors to share content onto social networks together with content embedded from social networks. Cookies are currently set by Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, YouTube and Vimeo. In order to implement these buttons and embeds, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Skipology.com.

You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

Skipology.com has no access to or control over these third party cookies.
