FreshGadgetNews.com is committed to protecting your online privacy while providing you with the most useful and enjoyable Web experience possible. While you can use many features of FreshGadgetNews.com anonymously, you are required to provide personal information to gain access to some of our premium content and services.
How we collect and use personal information
Registering for membership on FreshGadgetNews.com gives you access to all the site’s information and features. The only information required is your e-mail address, which is primarily used for user authentication. With your approval, we occasionally will send e-mail to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, and special offers from us. If you would rather not receive these e-mail notifications, you can simply indicate that preference either when you register or at any time you modify your account. In addition to receiving e-mail announcements, you can also sign up for daily e-mail newsletter.
If you enter a contest or respond to a promotion, we may ask for your postal address, e-mail address and phone number so we can notify contest winners and deliver promotional goodies.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocal) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on FreshGadgetNews.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
