COLLECTION OF DATA
Registration of a user account on this site requires only a valid e-mail address and a user name that has not been used already. You are not required to provide any other information if do not want to. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the e-mail address you provide and other information you provide may render you personally identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on UK VoIP Forums intentionally (depending on choices you make during the registration process, or on the way in which the site is configured) or unintentionally (such as, but not limited to, subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a third party). As on many web sites, the site admin may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this site (if it is the site admin’s policy to display advertising) is set forth below.
USE OF DATA
You should be aware that when you access or use our website, we may collect information from the devices you use to access or use our website by using “cookies”. If you’d like to learn how to manage these cookies and choose whether or not to receive information of different types, please see the section "Controlling My Cookies" below.
WHAT ARE COOKIES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to the devices you use to access online information. Your browser makes these cookies available every time you visit the website again, so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on your device.
COOKIES THAT ARE NEEDED TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE YOU HAVE ASKED FOR
Some cookies are essential to help your devices download or stream the information, or so you can move around websites and use their features. Without these cookies, content, products or services you’ve asked for can’t be provided.
Here are some examples of essential cookies.
IMPROVING YOUR BROWSING EXPERIENCE
Cookies allow the application or website to remember choices you make, such as your language or region and they provide improved features.
Here are a few examples of just some of the ways that cookies are used to improve your experience on our applications and websites:
We like to keep track of what information and links are popular and which ones don’t get used so much, to help us keep our information relevant and up to date. It’s also very useful to be able to identify trends of how people navigate (find their way through) our information and when and where “error messages” may originate.
This group of cookies, often called “analytics cookies” are used to gather this information. The information collected is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person’s activity. Analytics cookies are used to improve how an application, a website and its pages work.
Our applications, web locations, websites and communications you get from us also contain small invisible images known as “web beacons” or “pixels”. These are used to count the number of times the page or email has been viewed and allows us to measure the effectiveness of the communication.
We also use “affiliate” cookies. Some of our web based information will contain promotional links to other companies’ sites. If you follow one of these links and then register with or buy something from that other site, a cookie is used to tell the other site that you came from one of our sites. That other site may then pay us a small amount for the successful referral. For more information, see the Internet Advertising Bureau’s guide about how affiliate marketing works.
HOW WE SHOW ADVERTISING AND MARKETING THAT IS RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS
We sell space on our website to advertisers. The resulting adverts often contain cookies. The advertiser uses the browsing information collected from these cookies to:
It’s easy to choose not to receive behavioural advertising and manage your cookies if you want to.
CONTROLLING MY COOKIES
Various browsers have different ways to let you delete cookies or limit the kinds of cookies that can be placed on your computer. When you choose your browser, you may want to consider which suits your privacy preferences best.
To check out the settings in a browser, use the “Help” tab or look under “Tools” for settings like “Options” or “Privacy.” From there, you may be able to delete cookies, or control when they can be placed. Some browsers allow add-on software tools to block, delete, or control cookies. And security software often includes options to make cookie control easier.
If you disable cookies entirely, you may limit your browsing experience. For example, you may need to enter information repeatedly, or you might not get personalized content or ads that are meaningful to you. However, most browsers’ settings will allow you to block third-party cookies without also disabling first-party cookies.
HOW CAN I SEE AND MANAGE MY COOKIES IN MY BROWSER?
Virtually all modern browsers allow you to see what cookies you’ve got, and to clear them individually or clear all of them. To find out how to do this go to aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
HOW CAN I CHOOSE NOT TO RECEIVE ONLINE BEHAVIOURAL ADVERTISING AND OTHER TRACKING COOKIES?
In addition to the controls available on your computer, there are other ways of choosing not to receive Online Behavioural Advertising and other tracking cookies.
Please note that most of these choices work by setting a cookie that overrides the behavioural advertising cookie. If you clear all your cookies, you will also clear these opt-out cookies, therefore changing your preferences. In this instance you would need to choose again.
