Legal Basis for Collecting and Processing Your Data under GDPR
Under GDPR we collect and process personal data either through active consent because you allowed us to or because we had a legitimate interest to contact you, for example, if you are an advertiser who contacts us to ask for advertising rates and we reply we may email you in the future with similar offers and services.
IP addresses and Cookies
We may collect information about your computer for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us: to estimate our audience size and usage pattern; to store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our site according to your individual interests; to speed up your searches; and to recognise you when you return to our site.
Please note that some advertisers, including Google, display advertising on our website that use advertising cookies. Some of the ads you may see are targeted based on your interests or other content you have viewed online, ultimately leading to a more relevant advertising experience. This type of behavioural advertising is generally targeted towards groups of users with similar interests.
Such online advertising helps support the free content, products and services we provide to readers.
Some of the ads you see on our site are provided by other organisations that use their own cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once. The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write to these cookies.
