What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Media uploads are disabled for visitors. If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
This site uses Google Analytics to track visitor statistics. Here’s what you need to know:
- No Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is sent to Google Analytics.
- IP addresses are anonymised and are not recorded.
- We comply with any Do Not Track browser settings (though these are browser dependant)
- You can also opt out of Google Analytics tracking using this browser plugin
Where we send your data
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, the timestamp of an event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Advertisements on vBrain.info are paid for in full by the advertisers. This does not in any way, shape or form, constitute an endorsement of a given company or product. It´s an advertisement, treat it as such.
Some of the ads displayed on vBrain.info contain a tracking code, in order for the advertiser to track where link clicks originate. vBrain.info does not send any Personally Identifiable Information to any advertisers.
No other data is sent to any other 3rd party.
