Here at Sex Toy Nerds, respecting user privacy and personal data are very important to us. As citizens of the world, it frankly scares us how much data the average website collects and shares about its users. And as a result of this, we won’t collect or share any data about our readers that we wouldn’t want collected about ourselves.
Because, as much as we hate any sort of data collection practices, the truth is we do need to collect some basic data in order to make this website function. Here’s an overview of all the ways we can collect data, some important distinctions on data we’ll never ask you for, and what we do with the data we do collect.
Data we collect on Sex Toy Nerds
Cookies and Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and usage of our site.
Voluntary Information Collection and Use
While using Sex Toy Nerds, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information that can be used to contact you. This may include, but is not limited to, your email address.
Email address collection will always be opt-in. That is, we will only ever collect your email address when you explicitly give it to us in an email sign up form or contact form on our website.
We collect this information for the purpose of providing additional services related to our website, communicating with you, responding to your requests and inquiries, and improving our own services.
We may use your personal information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you. This collection will always be opt-in by default, and you may opt-out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.
Data we don’t collect
Cookies for targeted ads
A large part of the internet publishing industry is built on the back of personalized advertisements for readers. These ad display networks use multiple cookies to track user information and behavior across websites, with the ultimate goal of serving highly targeted and specific ads.
We find this sort of tracking to be invasive and inherently unethical. At Sex Toy Nerds, we will never use your personal data for the purposes of serving you targeted advertisements, and will not share your information with 3rd party ad networks that do.
Furthermore we know these ad display networks often serve shady or questionable ads to readers, and we don’t believe our readers should have to endure that sort of experience.
We take data collection very seriously. If you have found any of our policies above to be confusing or insufficient, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate and resolve the matter promptly. Please let us know if you have any questions!
