Privacy Policy

This is the Privacy Policy page of this blog where it will explain to you how your data are being gathered through various means. In most cases, your data are being gathered by a third advertising companies. The reason why they have to gather data from your visit is to obtain information about your interest but limited to your name, email or any confidential details that you have.

As the author of ‘howtogetridofhousecentipedes.blogspot.com’ blog, it is my own responsibility and duty to protect your privacy at all times as you browse the contents of this blog. Thus, the following are the services that I use on how your data are being gathered;

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a tool that most Bloggers use to track the number of their visitors. If you are also interested in using this tool then you can visit their site here.

What this tool does is it automatically records data such as the following;

1. Internet Protocol (IP)
2. Type of Browser
3. Internet Service Provider (ISP)
4. Referring Site
5. Exit and Entry Page
6. Date and Time of Visits
7. User’s Activity
8. Demographic Location
9. etc...

Since Google Analytics are being continuously improved, there are plenty of data being recorded by this tool on your visit. If you wanted to know more about these data then it's best to visit Google Analytic's website. Or, you may also want to visit Google Analytics' Privacy Policy page.

Google Webmaster Tool

Similar to Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tool has its own Search Analytics that collects basic information. But unlike Google Analytics, it only collects very few data which as the number of clicks, demographic location, device used and search terms.

Google Webmaster Tool isn't really intended for gathering information about traffic and visitors. It is a tool used by website or blog owners to find errors and fix them.

Automatically Generated Cookies

Most websites today are actually using Auto-Generated Cookies. Before we proceed, what exactly are cookies?

These are small files that are automatically created and stored on your computer’s temporary folder. Now, what the cookies does is that they collect data basing on your actions towards your visit into the site. On this case, you are interested about House Centipedes so this means that the owner of the cookie-file generated particularly by the third party ads will provide a Centipede related advertisements.

If you don’t trust those cookies to be somewhat malicious, there are three choices that you may want to do. First, browse the suspected cookie file from your OS system way through the temporary folder. You can open the file from a Note Pad to check the information that has been stored but in most cases the information are encrypted. If this is the case then you may proceed to the second step. You have to visit the owner of that particular cookie that you would like to investigate then contact the administrator or support. Your last option would be to block the ad responsible for generating the suspected malicious cookie.

Google have a good and clear discussion about cookies on this site. I suggest that you read it to learn more about cookies.
