Cookies policy

WebSpellChecker LLC (“WebSpellChecker”, “we”, or “us”) and our third party partners, such as our advertising and analytics partners, use various technologies to collect information, such as cookies and web beacons.

What types of technologies do we use?

Cookies

We use cookies to make interactions with our products and website(s)(”Services“) easy and meaningful. We use cookies (and similar technologies, like HTML5 localStorage) to keep you logged in, remember your preferences, and provide information for future development of WebSpellChecker.

A cookie is a small piece of text that our web server stores on your computer or mobile device, which your browser sends to us when you return to our website. Cookies do not necessarily identify you if you are merely visiting WebSpellChecker; however, a cookie may store a unique identifier for each logged in user. The cookies WebSpellChecker sets are essential for the operation of the website, or are used for performance or functionality. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device. If you disable your browser or device’s ability to accept cookies, you will not be able to log in or use our website to manage the Services.

Third-party cookies

Please note that third parties (including for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies on our Services.

We have little control over these “third party” cookies, so we suggest that you check the respective privacy policies for these external services to help you understand what data these organizations hold about you and what they do with it.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics as a third party tracking service, but we don’t use it to track you individually or collect your User Personal Information. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how our website performs and how our users, in general, navigate through and use the website(s). This helps us evaluate our users’ use of the website; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance.

Google Analytics gathers certain simple, non-personally identifying information over time, such as your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring and exit pages, time stamp, and similar data about your use of our website. We do not link this information to any of your personal information such as your user name. We will not, nor will we allow any third party to, use the Google Analytics tool to track our users individually; collect any User Personal Information other than IP address; or correlate your IP address with your identity. Google provides further information about its own privacy practices and offers a browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics tracking

Certain pages on our website may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. While we try to minimize these third party cookies, we can’t always control what cookies this third party content sets.

How do we use them?

  • Where strictly necessary. These cookies and other technologies are essential in order to enable the Services to provide the feature you have requested, such as remembering you have logged in.
  • For functionality. These cookies and similar technologies remember choices you make such as language or search parameters. We use these cookies to provide you with an experience more appropriate with your selections and to make your use of the Services more tailored.
  • For performance and analytics. These cookies and similar technologies collect information on how users interact with the Services and enable us to improve how the Services operate. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how visitors arrive at and browse our products and website to identify areas for improvement such as navigation, user experience, and marketing campaigns.
  • Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They remember the websites you have visited and that information is shared with other parties such as advertising technology service providers and advertisers.
    Social media cookies. These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our websites or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social media site. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting/advertising activities.

How can you opt-out?

To opt-out of our use of cookies, you can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of our Services. WebSpellChecker and our third party partners also collect information using web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”).

Many browsers include their own management tools for removing HTML5 local storage objects. To manage “flash cookies” please click here.

You may be able to opt out of receiving personalized advertisements as described in the Privacy Policy under “Your Choices.”

You will not be able to opt-out of any cookies or other technologies that are “strictly necessary” for the Services.

Tracking

Do Not Track is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our website beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking, which you may opt out of here. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection on our website for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser’s Do Not Track setting.

If you are interested in turning on your browser’s privacy and Do Not Track settings, the Do Not Track  website has browser-specific instructions.

Updates to this Policy

This Cookies Policy may be updated from time to time. If we make any changes, we will notify you by revising the “effective starting” date at the top of this Policy.If you have any questions about how we use cookies, you can contact us at privacy@webspellchecker.net.
