Privacy Policy

Last updated: 10 APR 2019

TehnoBlog.org (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates tehnoblog.org domain (the “site”). The following page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the site.

We use your Personal Information only for providing functionality and improving the site. By using the site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection And Use

While using our site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information (e.g. email address and name (name does not need to be real one, nicknames / aliases are fine)), that can be used to contact or identify you (e.g. while leaving or replying with your comment or using our site’s contact form).

Web Beacons

Web Beacon (or “web bug”) is similar technology like Cookies (see above sections), consisting usually of a small image (usually 1×1 pixel in size with .png or .gif file extension) or other files (usually javascript files with .js extension), that may be used for user tracking and behavior monitoring. Their sole purpose is to indicate if particular content is loaded and/or read. Our site uses web beacons for analytics purposes, and it may be also placed by our 3rd party content providers for tracking.

Data Logging And Processing

We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site (“log data”) from a mobile phone, tablet, personal computer, smart TV and other devices capable of web access (further: “device”). This log data includes information such as your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. Logs are kept for at least 3 months, up to 12 months, after which they are automatically purged.

In addition, we use third party services, such as Google Analytics to collect, monitor and analyze traffic. In case of Google Analytics, we do not process user data directly, neither we have access to any personally identifiable data (such as user’s google account email, IP address etc.).

In case of our own analytics and logging data, we have access to user’s IP address, coarse geo-location based on IP address (country/city only), and potentially other personal information such as email and username used during account registration (sign-up and sign-in) procedures.

In addition, our server software automatically logs all requests by design for security reasons in the form of date and time stamp, IP address and requested resource or page, which are archived and stored for up to several months, after which they are automatically deleted.

As explained above, we may keep analytics data for up to 26 months after which they are automatically deleted. Aggregated data that does not contain any personally identifiable information is kept indefinitely (such as total pages visits/views, duration of visits per day, week or month, etc.).

You can use below information to opt-out from our analytics program:

1. Opt-Out from our website’s internal analytics:
