This policy outlines the various types of information that we gather about you and the way we use or apply this information:
We collect three different types of information about our visitors:
1. Information that you explicitly provide us. We have the ability to collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply us. As an example, if you chose to subscribe, your email address and name will be stored, as well as any comments, search terms used on the site, and any emails you send us. If you do not wish to supply certain information, we may not be able to provide you with some services that are dependent upon the collection of this information.
2. Information that is collected automatically. We collect information that is generated automatically as you browse through the Algorithmic Complexity site. As an example, to enhance your experience and gather important statistical information, we use a standard feature of modern web browsers called a “cookie.” Cookies are small files that your browser places on your hard drive. By showing how often and when people visit our site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. Another benefit of cookies are to prevent you from having to enter your preferences every time that you visit the site. We also collect information about your computer, your internet service provider, your operating system, screen resolution, and time you spend on the site. We use this information to improve delivery of content, accommodate a wider variety of users and computers, and measure traffic on our site.
3. Information from 3rd party sources. Algorithmic Complexity may obtain information about you from third party sources. We may combine the information received from them with the information we have obtained from you either explicitly or implicitly.
We will not sell or distribute any of the personal information you provide us. It is used to improve your experience, the site, and our goals. Any information used directly will be held anonymously.
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns about the privacy practices of the Algorithmic Complexity site please feel free to contact us.
