At CloseOpenHours, we truly understand how important online privacy is. We do everything we can to protect your personal information while using our website. In the interest of facilitating your data safety, we will outline everything there is to know about what data we collect from our readers and how we use said data.
Personal Data: Types and Uses
There are two types of personal data we may collect from our readers: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable information
Personally identifiable information is a type of personal information that can be used to identify you. In this category, we include your full name home and/or work address, email address, phone number etc.
We mostly need this information to stay in touch and communicate with you. Whenever you ask a question or want to reach out to our team, we will need your email address or phone number so that we can reply. We may also require personal information to verify your identity.
Personally identifiable information is highly sensitive and as such we are extremely careful about how we collect, store and use this information.
Non-personally Identifiable Information: Log Files
Unlike personally identifiable information, non-personally identifiable information cannot be used to identify you. Data that falls within this category includes IP, browser type, information about when you accessed our page, and where you accessed it from (general geographic area).
This information is recorded using log files. We use log files, and the information contained therein, for statistical purposes. They allow us to understand our main audience better. By knowing more about our audience, we can adjust our content to better suit your needs. Log files let us know when we should deliver content, what content you prefer, and how we should deliver it.
Cookies and Third Party Ads
You can turn off cookies at any time from your browser’s settings or options tab, depending on your browsers type. Bear in mind however that certain website features may require cookies to work properly, so by disabling cookies you may no longer have access to these features.
Never disclose personal information to someone you do not trust. Avoid offering personal information if you do not understand the purpose for which you are offering this information. Do not post personal information in the comments section of the website, or on social media. These spaces are public, and anyone will have access to your personal info.
