Privacy Policy Statement

This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes what cookies are and how and they’re being used by the linuxcapable.com website (“Website” or “Service”) and any of its related products and services (collectively, “Services”).

This Policy is a legally binding agreement between you (“User,” “you,” or “your”) and this Website operator (“Operator,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Suppose you are entering into this agreement on behalf of a business or other legal entity. In that case, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this agreement, in which case the terms “User,” “you,” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority or disagree with the terms of this agreement, you must not accept this agreement and may not access and use the Website and Services.

It would be best if you read this Policy to understand the types of cookies we use, the information we collect using cookies, and how that information is used. It also describes the choices available to you regarding accepting or declining the use of cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data stored in text files saved on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”).

Session cookies are temporary cookies used during your visit to the Website, and they expire when you close the web browser.

Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences within our Website and remain on your desktop or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for you while visiting the Website and Services.

Cookies may be set by the Website (“first-party cookies”) or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the Website (“third party cookies”). These third parties can recognize you when you visit our website and when you visit certain other websites.

What Types of Cookies Do We Use?

Necessary Cookies

Necessary cookies allow us to offer you the best possible experience when accessing and navigating through our Website and using its features. For example, these cookies let us recognize that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access the content.

Functionality Cookies

Functionality cookies let us operate the Website and Services in accordance with the choices you make. For example, we will recognize your username and remember how you customized the Website and Services during future visits.

Analytics Cookies

These cookies enable us and third-party services to collect aggregated data for statistical purposes on how our visitors use the Website. These cookies do not contain personal information such as names and email addresses and are used to help us improve your user experience of the Website.

Social Media cookies

Third-party cookies from social media sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.) let us track social network users when they visit or use the Website and Services or share content by using a tagging mechanism provided by those social networks.

These cookies are also used for event tracking and remarketing purposes. Any data collected with these tags will be used in accordance with our and social networks’ privacy policies. We will not collect or share any personally identifiable information from the user.

How are Cookies Used For Advertising Purposes?

Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Although we do not use cookies to create a profile of your browsing behavior on third-party sites, we do use aggregate data from third parties to show you relevant, interest-based advertising. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. You can opt-out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your cookie settings. Opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit, but, instead, opting out will result in the ads you see not being matched to your interests. This implies that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests by those specific cookies.

How to Delete Cookies?

If you don’t like the idea of cookies or certain types of cookies, you can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and not to accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this, visit internetcookies.com.

Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or do not accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features the Website and Services offer.

We do not control third parties collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. In addition, most web browsers provide help pages relating to setting cookie preferences. More information may be found for the following browsers here:

Some of the tracking technologies we may use do not participate in the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This means you will not be opted out by following the instructions above. Instead, click on the following link to get more information about how to opt out of that tracker’s cookies: Twitter. Certain choices you make are both browser and device-specific.

Changes and Amendments

We reserve the right to modify this Policy or its terms related to the Website and Services at any time at our discretion. We will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page when we do. We may also provide notice to you in other ways at our discretion, such as through the contact information you have provided.

An updated version of this Policy will be effective immediately upon posting the revised policy unless otherwise specified. Your continued use of the Website and Services after the revised Policy’s effective date (or such other act specified at that time) will constitute your consent to those changes.

Acceptance of Policy

You acknowledge that you have read this Policy and agree to its terms and conditions. By accessing and using the Website and Services, you agree to be bound by this Policy. If you do not agree to abide by the terms of this Policy, you are not authorized to access or use the Website and Services.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Users who register on our website (if any) also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any information you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Cloudflare Service

This website is behind the Cloudflare reverse proxy service. By using this site, you agree to all the terms of Cloudflare’s privacy statement, which can be found here.
