We collect the minimum amount of personal information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us. We do not sell or give any of it to third parties.
We use common internet technologies like cookies and server logs and collect the same basic information that most websites collect, which include browser type, referring site, additional websites requested, date and time of each request, and IP address. We use this information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
For users with an account, we collect a user or display name, email address, and password. Your user name is used to identify you to others on Turkopticon, and your email address is used to communicate with you for purposes such as account confirmation or notifications. We will not send you anything else via email without your express consent.
A cookie is a small piece of text that our web server stores on your computer or mobile device, which your browser sends to us when you return to our site. Cookies do not necessarily identify you if you are merely visiting Turkopticon; however, a cookie may store a unique identifier for each logged in user. The cookies Turkopticon sets are essential for the operation of the website, or are used for performance or functionality. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device. If you disable your browser or device’s ability to accept cookies, you will not be able to log in or use Turkopticon’s services.
We use Google Analytics as a third party tracking service, but do not use it to track individual users or visitors. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how our website performs and how our users generally use our service with the goal of improving content and website performance.
Google Analytics collects certain information over time, such as your IP address, browser type, screen size, internet service provider, referring and exit pages, and timestamps about your use of Turkopticon. We do not link this information to you or your account in any way.
Please refer to Google for further information about the data collected and its own privacy practices. You may also use this browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics tracking.
We do not respond differently to an individual's Do Not Track browser setting. With the exception of Google Analytics (which you can opt out), we do not track your online browsing activity over time on our own service or any third party services nor do we permit any third-party services to track your activity on our site.
Turkopticon takes all measures reasonably necessary to maintain data integrity and accuracy, and to protect your user personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during its transmission and after we receive it. Unfortunately, no method of transmission, or method of storage is 100% secure, and thus, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
