Privacy Policy

The privacy of visitors to is important to us.

Listed below are details of what types of personal information we receive and/or collect when you use or visit Compulincs and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Cookies / Web beacons

We use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you an advert once in your visit or the ability to access some of the website features.

We also use third party advertisements on Compulincs to support the site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and/or web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Adobe Flash Player installed.

This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing London airport adverts to someone in London, for example) or showing certain adverts based on specific sites you have visited (e.g. showing car adverts to someone who frequents car sites).

DoubleClick DART Cookies

We may also use DART cookies for advert serving through Google DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve adverts specific to you and your interests (i.e. ‘interest based targeting’). The adverts served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Scotland, you may see Scotland hotel adverts when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about football). DART uses non personally identifiable information.

It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone numbers, passwords, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt out of this interest based advert serving by visiting Google Ad Policies.

You can also opt out of the interest based advert serving of many third party advert servers and networks simultaneously by visiting NetworkAdvertising. Opting out of a network does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the network from which you opted out will no longer deliver adverts tailored to your Web preferences and usage patterns.

You can also choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your web browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opting out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the adverts, a new cookie will be added.

Contact forms

In order to prevent spam on our contact form, we use Google’s reCAPTCHA v2 service. This service is mainly used to distinguish between a submission made by a normal person and one made by automated processing (bots).

This service may include the transmission of your IP address, and possibly other data, that is required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to work.

You acknowledge and understand that the reCAPTCHA v2 service works by collecting hardware and software information, such as device and application data, and sending these data to Google for analysis. The information collected in connection with your use of the service will be used for improving reCAPTCHA and for general security purposes. It will not be used for personalized advertising by Google.

Your use of Google’s reCAPTCHA v2 service is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
