As a fellow Internet user myself, I (Barzrul) totally respect your online privacy. So it goes without saying that I’m fully committed to safeguarding your online privacy while you’re here at Barzrul.com website.

And that’s precisely why I’ve decided to include the following, which discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.

Log files

Like most standard websites, Barzrul.com uses log files. These include: Internet Protocol addresses (IP addresses), browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Web cookies and beacons

Web cookies (also known as HTTP cookies, or just cookies) are parcels of text that are sent by a server to a Web browser, and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. In other words, a cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer that is tied to information about the user.

Web beacons are objects that are embedded in a webpage or email that are invisible to the user, but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. Other names are web bug, tracking bug, tag or page tag.

Barzrul.com does use cookies. Additionally, some of my business partners (for example, advertisers) may use cookies and web beacons as well. This site has no access to, or control of advertisers’ web cookies or web beacons.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. Please check your browser’s help section for instructions on how to do this.

DoubleClick DART cookies

Barzrul.com also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Malaysia, you may see Malaysia hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about football).

DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ads/

You can choose 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.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added. If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.

Measuring our visitors

I measure visitors to Barzrul.com website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at my site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous, so I don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited my site.

The information I collect from analytics helps me understand what parts of my sites are doing well, how people arrive at my site and so on. Like most websites, I use this information to make my website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics here https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 or opt out if you wish here https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Social networks

My social networks provide social buttons and similar features which I use on Barzrul.com such as the “Like”, “Tweet” and “+” buttons.

To do so I embed code that they provide and I do not control myself. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. I do not have any access to that information, nor can I 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 my website is remarkably inoffensive I imagine this is not a concern for most users.

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to discuss Barzrul.com articles, I use a discussion system called Disqus.

To do so, I embed code that Disqus provide and I do not control myself. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like I do. They also remember who you are if you login into any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.

Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.

Disqus will know what pages you viewed in my site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so I do not imagine this is a concern for many people.

Links

Barzrul.com contains links to other websites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. I encourage you, when you leave this website, to read the privacy policy (or privacy statement) of each and every website you visit, as this particular privacy policy applies solely to this particular website.

Advertisers

I use outside advertising networks and companies in order to display ads on Barzrul.com. These ads may contain cookies and/or web beacons in order to collect data in the ad serving process. These such cookies and/or web beacons are collected by the companies and/or advertising networks, themselves. I do not have any access to this information.

Affiliates links

Barzrul.com may contain affiliate links through products that we recommend. If you purchase those items through our links, we will earn a commission. You will not pay more when buying a product through our link. In fact, we oftentimes am able to negotiate a lower rate (or bonuses) not available elsewhere. Your support in purchasing through these links enables us to continue to offer you lots of free stuff.

Updates to this policy

I may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version.
