Privacy Statement

Privacy policy

Privacy matters, but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on and how it affects you.

Thankfully, because BeCyberSafe.com is a very static website without much interactivity, then this Privacy Policy is remarkably short - there's no "War and Peace" length text here!


Short version

  1. We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  2. We never sell information about our visitors to anyone.
  3. Some 3rd parties like Facebook may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  4. If you click on a link to certain vendors then we may receive commission for the referral. These vendors, and the company who manage this affiliate scheme (Skimlinks), receive small amounts of information about you from us.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.


Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This service records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous - we don't know who you are, just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people find our site, and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.


Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your web browser and allow websites to function. BeCyberSafe.com uses cookies as part of Google Analytics (see above) and, ironically, to keep track of your cookie preferences as well (yes we hate those cookie warning banners too!).

If you click on an external link to a product vendor then our partner Skimlinks may also (for certain links) place a tracking cookie on your computer and record your IP address. This is because we earn money through commission from referral fees. Their privacy policy is available here, and you can opt out of all their cookies globally (ie on all websites) via their optout tool.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

Social media websites provide the ability to share great content with your friends and other users. To help you take advantage of these services we include prominent web links for you to click and share our content to these sites .

Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, but only if you click a link to share the page. As our site is remarkably inoffensive we can't see that being an issue for any of our users.


Newsletter

If you sign up for our mailing list you consent to us sending you periodic newsletters. By signing up we will be able to see your email address but we receive no other information about you. Our mailing partner is MailJet who store (and thus will have access to) all email addresses - you can read their privacy policy here.

We will only use your email address for the purposes of sending you newsletters, from which you can unsubscribe at any time (follow the Unsubscribe link in the email). We will never share your details with anyone unless explicitly required for the purposes of sending the newsletters (for example if we change our mailing provider).


Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version.
