Why we collect this information

We collect this information to analyze and improve the content of this website.

For example, if we notice that our website is mainly visited by people who use computers with the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, then we know that we need to write more tips about Windows 10 in the future.

For example, if we find out that your visit to a page on this site is limited to less than 15 seconds, then we know that the information on the page is not what you were looking for, not relevant, or just not good enough. In the future, we can improve that article or change the information.

Advertisements

Like many websites, this website uses advertisements from Google Adsense to earn money to keep this site running and to pay our bills.

If ad personalization is turned on, Google will use your information to make your ads more useful for you.

For example, a website that sells laptops might use Google's ad services. After you visit that site, you could see an ad for laptops on a different website that shows ads served by Google.

If ad personalization is turned off, Google will not collect or use your information to create an ad profile or personalize the ads Google shows to you. You will still see ads, but they may not be as useful.

Google Adsense uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common uses of cookies for advertising are to target advertising based on what's relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

But:

These cookies contain no information that personally identifies you to Google.
