Privacy Policy and Cookies

RXTVlog uses a small number of cookies in order to deliver services, allow you to share content on social media (if signed in) and to analyse traffic.

Your IP address and user-agent are shared with Google along with performance and security metrics to ensure quality of service, generate usage statistics, and to detect and address abuse.

This page contains information about why certain information is gathered and what it is needed for. This page will tell you how you can manage your settings with our partners and how to opt-out in line with GDPR.

Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user's previous activity.

Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items in a shopping basket) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited by the user as far back as months or years ago).

Google Analytics cookies: We monitor web traffic to the site in association with Google Analytics. Why is this needed? This information, for example, tells us which browsers are being used and where users are coming from. Also it records how many users visit the various parts of the site. This information tells us which browsers we need to work on supporting, where spam traffic is coming from and to see which content is generating the most interest - so we can focus our limited resources on the things that readers want to see. But we can't identify individuals with the information we get from Google.

Adverts
Adverts (where present) are provided by our chosen ad partners Google Adsense. These provide the website with income to cover running costs. We hate ads that autoplay or cover most of the screen and understand why you may use ad-blockers - as some websites are impossible to enjoy thanks to pesky adverts. RXTVlog will keep ads to a minimum and place them around, not half way in the middle of an article.
