Privacy Policy

At quickonomics.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Therefore we provide information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit quickonomics.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We do use cookies (such as Google Advertising Cookie) to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on quickonomics.com to support our site. For a list of certified third party advertisers, visit https://support.google.com/dfp_sb/answer/94149. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing more relevant ads based on specific sites you visited. You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings. To ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we will not serve you any personalized ads if you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, we may still use certain cookies to ensure proper functionality of our advertising features (e.g. to prevent fraud or enable frequency capping). You can find more information on cookies and how to disable them below.

Google Analytics

At quickonomics.com we use Google Analytics, a Google web-analysis service. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze your usage of the website. The information gathered by those cookies is generally transmitted to and saved on Google servers in the USA. For more information on how Google uses cookies and the data collected through them, visit https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/cookies/ or
https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ respectively.

Since we value your privacy we have activated IP-anonymization at quickonomics.com, which means your IP-address will be shortened (i.e. anonymized) by Google within member states of the European Union and other states that are part of the Agreement on the EEA. Only in exceptional cases the full IP-address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google may use the collected information to analyze your usage of this website and provide us with reports that allow us to improve your user experience in the future.

By default, all user-level and event-level data associated with cookies, user-identifiers (e.g., User-ID) and advertising identifiers (e.g., DoubleClick cookies) collected through Google Analytics will be automatically 26 months after the latest activity.

DoubleClick DART cookies

We may also use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx or by installing a simple browser addon (see: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/). If you are located in the EEA, we will not use cookies to collect your browser history, because we do not offer personalized advertising to users in this area.

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added. Alternatively, you can opt out of some third-party vendors’ uses of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.

Log Files and Backups

As with most other websites, we may collect and use the data contained in log files through our hosting provider. The information in the log files include information such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), the browser you used to visit our site, the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.  In addition to that we create periodic backups (daily and weekly) of our website, to ensure high availability and quick recoverability in the case of technical issues.
