What data we collect from you and why we collect it

Email Communications

If you choose to identify yourself (or otherwise provide us with personal information) by contacting us using the email addresses published on this site:
  • We may collect (and will retain) any personally identifying information, such as your name, email address, and phone number, and any other information you provide. We will use this information to try to fulfill your request and may use it provide you with additional information at a later time, or for the purposes of our own analysis. We will not disclose such information to third parties, except as specified in this privacy policy or in the form of anonymized statistics.
  • If you request information, services, or assistance, we may disclose your personal information to those third parties that (in our judgment) are appropriate in order to fulfill your request. If, when you provide us with such information, you specify that you do not want us to disclose the information to third parties, we will honor your request. Note, however, that if you do not provide such information, it may be impossible for us to refer, respond to or fulfill your request. 

Cookies

"Cookies" are a type of file placed on your device to help websites remember who you are. This site does not use any cookies of its own, but the Google Analytics service and Amazon Associates program may place their own cookies on your device when you visit our site (see below).

Google Analytics

Like the majority of websites on the internet, we use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they came to our site from. This helps us to learn more about who comes to our website, what they do on it, and how we can make the website better and help more people find it.

Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information, and does not provide your IP address to us. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.

Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Amazon Associates

This site is a participant in the Amazon Associates affiliate marketing program, which means that we may receive a commission for any purchases you make on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, or Amazon.ca within 24 hours after clicking a link on our website. The Amazon.com company may place a cookie on your device when you visit our website even if you don't click on any links, and may be able to identify you by connecting you with an Amazon account you have previously signed into on your device, or one you sign into after following one of the links. Data collected and processed by Amazon is subject to the rules of the Amazon Privacy Notice.

Amazon also shares some anonymous information with us about people who click the links on our site, such as which products people click on links to, how many people click on them, what they end up purchasing on Amazon, and how much they spent. For example, we may be able to see that ten people clicked on a link to the book Star Wars: Tales from Jabba's Palace, and that two of them bought it, one of them bought Yoda: Dark Rendezvouz instead, and one bought an iPhone and an $80 case of wine. However, Amazon does not tell us who any of these people are, and does not provide us with their names, contact information, or IP addresses.

We may use this anonymized data to track and optimize our earnings, which helps the site's creator to make a living.

Our Host's Servers

Just like almost every website on the internet, we assume that if you visit our site your web browser automatically sends the servers that host our website information such as the:
  • name of the company that is providing your internet access;
  • current Internet Protocol (IP) address of the device you are using (this does not usually tell them anything about your physical location beyond what city or country you are accessing the internet from);
  • type of browser software and operating system you are using;
  • date and time you access our site; and
  • web address of any site where you clicked on a link to get to this site.
That company, 50webs, does not provide any of this information to us, and we have not been able to determine how they handle such information. However, none of this information would normally reveal your personal identity.

Other Third Parties

Besides those listed above, this site does not allow or help any other third parties to collect information from you or place cookies on your device. For example, we do not allow Facebook to track your visits to this site (though if you follow a link from this site to Facebook another site that does allow Facebook tracking, Facebook might still be able to see where you came from).

Who we share your data with

This site does not sell your data or share your data with third parties for their own marketing.
We may entrust third parties such as email services, backup services, and Google Drive (Privacy Policy) with confidentially storing, managing, processing, or analyzing data that we collect. The activities of these third parties are governed by their own privacy policies.

How long we retain your data

Information you provide to us through contact forms or emails may be retained indefinitely for our records unless you request that it be erased. Information collected by Google Analytics and Amazon Associates may be retained according to those organizations' own privacy policies.

What rights you have over your data

You may contact us to request that we erase any personal data about you that is held within the control of this site. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes, nor does it include data held by third parties, over which we do not have control.

You may contact us with any inquires about your data or privacy by email at rd@yodasdatapad.com.
