Adsense privacy policy

Post by morinn on Fri Mar 14, 2008 8:13 am

With the new AdSense terms & conditions changes
made last week, one of the requirements is that all publishers have a
posted privacy policy in place that advises visitors specifically about
cookies and web beacons. Here is an AdSense-friendly version of a
privacy policy that JenSense readers are welcome to use on their own
sites. Obviously, replace ___.com with your own website name and/or
URL. And you may need to tailor bits of it to suit your site - if your
site targets a specific country, you can change the ISP and city
examples with ones in your own country.
Privacy Policy for ____.com
The privacy of our visitors to ____.com is important to us.
At _____.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information
is important. Here is information on what types of personal information
we receive and collect when you use visit _____.com, and how we
safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to
third parties.
Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in
log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet
protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or
Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet
Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you
visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal
preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing
you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our
features, such as forums.
We also use third party advertisements on ____.com to support our
site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and
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 Flash
installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing
New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or
showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing
cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or
third-party cookies in your 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.
Donít forget you now need to have a privacy policy on all
your AdSense sites, this isnít something that is optional, and when you
agreed to the new terms, you agreed to do this too. I donít know how
strict they will be policing this new change to the terms, but it is
always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to protecting your
AdSense account. You donít want a black mark against your account
because you havenít done this, I will be making the changes to all mine
this week.

What's a privacy policy? Same thing as a TOS??? scratch

Anyway, it's always recommended to play safe with google... & actually StatCounter & other tracking services also use cookies as well... & they should also be included in the Privacy Policy! Razz
