We may utilize Google Analytics on our site to track analytical data to determine how well our web pages are working. Google collects your browsing data while on our site as well as usage of cookies and your IP address. You have the option to opt out through Google. Analytical data gathered through Google Analytics is used internally for our own marketing research.
We also collect server logs for site statistics through our hosting provider. These logs provide us with your IP address, page visited, time and referring URL. Our web site and online services may also utilize third party applications to provide additional services (such as embedded fonts and customer support scripts). These services may have their own tracking procedures in place that Digital Berean has no control over. You are encouraged to visit those third party sites to obtain their privacy policies. We may also utilize online ads on the site to help generate revenue to run the site.
Basically, we use the information you supply and the information from your activity on this site to provide this service. We will not sell or give away your information to others except where required by law or where necessary for our services to work properly.
By providing your email address to us, you allow us to routinely send you email notifications related to activity and your account on Digital Berean as well as contact you to tell you about new services or new resources. You also allow us to store your personal contact information such as your email and name in our database indefinitely. You have the option in your account to disable email notifications.
We make every effort to secure your personal data and usage information in our online databases. For example, we encrypt your password. However, note that our services are run by a third party hosting provider and we make no guarantees either implied or actual to the safeguarding of your data that you provide to us. To sum up, there is no way to make an impenetrable database from hackers and prying eyes.
