What Personal Information Might We Collect?
During a visit to WideShut.co.uk we may in various instances ask you for personal information about yourself, this may include but is not limited to: Name/Username, Email Address, Facebook Page. This may be taken during the commenting process, account registration process, Facebook “liking” or similar. We will never pass on this information to third parties and will only use it internally in the context explained when disclosing said information.
In addition to any information you disclose to us, we use standard website tracking services that may collect certain “non-personally identifiable information” such as your Web Browser software, Operating System, Screen Resolution and Country of Origin. This information may be used internally to measure our growth and to make your visit to our website easier. For example, if a lot of users have a certain screen resolution then we will optimize the site to reflect this. We do not have the capability to combine this information with personal information. In other words we do not know that X User with X IP Address and X Web Browser, is Joe Blogs on Facebook or website User Blogs234.
Third Party Advertising:
We use various third party advertising companies that serve advertising banners and links to you when you visit the website.
These may include, but are not limited to Popunders, Banners and Contextual Links. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, a third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique “cookie” on your browser. Cookies can be deleted from your browser at any time. They are only permitted to track “non-personally identifiable information”.
WideShut.co.uk does not explicitly endorse any of the corporations, products or services advertised through the website.
We work with a series of reputable advertising companies, but in some rare instances a dangerous advert may unintentionally get through the filters. WideShut.co.uk and the Advertising Company will work hard to remove such an advert and report it to the appropriate authorities. If you see a suspicious advert (blocking access, asking for details, installing spyware) inform us immediately and we will take it down. Unfortunately these things do happen on the Internet. It’s the nature of the beast.
We hope this does not disrupt your viewing pleasure and are open to any suggestions you may have regarding web user privacy. A good way to ensure online privacy is to regularly delete cookies, use a throwaway email address, browse with a proxy ip address and logon with an alias name or nickname rather than you birth name.
