Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on all our websites and how it affects you.
These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
Cookies are small pieces of data which are stored by a website through your browser, to enable an improved experience whilst using or browsing a particular website or to remember your preferences or navigation history/activity (such as pages you have visited within a particular site, language preferences or typical activity) at a particular site.
The Spin Castle website can operate without the cookies. If you wish you can turn off cookies. This will affect only voting and polls on the website.
By accessing, continuing to use, or navigating throughout Spin Castle website you accept that we will utilize certain browser cookies to improve the user experience which you receive with us.
Whether a cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First party cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other cookies are third party cookies. The Spin Castle website uses also third party cookies related with Google Analytics and AddThis. The third party cookies can be turned off the same way as mentioned in How can I prevent cookies being used on my browser? section.
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
