In this section of the BestJuiceMakers website, we will let you know exactly how we collect personal data from our users and what happens to that data. We strongly encourage you to send any questions regarding this policy to our team via the contact page or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We will also discuss how each type of data is collected and how you can opt out of sharing different types of personal information.
Lastly, we will deal with the ways in which we use said data and why we find it necessary to collect it from our users.
Types of Personal Information
The two main types of information all websites collect are personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information?
Personally identifiable is generally the information everyone has in mind when they think of websites collecting user data. It is information that can be used by itself or together with other information to personally identify a specific user.
Therefore, personally identifiable information is highly sensitive. Examples of personally identifiable information include your full name, home address, work address, phone numbers, email address, SSN or birthplace and date of birth. In short, any information that is specific to you and you alone.
Because this data is so important and sensitive, BestJuiceMakers will collect as little personally identifiable information as possible. Personally identifiable information will be collected only as necessary. We will never collect personally identifiable information unless we absolutely need it.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information?
Non-personally identifiable information falls into many categories. Non-personally identifiable information is the most common type of information collected online. It is information that cannot be used to identify you, either by itself or together with other information.
Non-personally identifiable information can be split into a few groups, based on their use. We will describe each category in the section below. Note that this list is not exhaustive. It describes the categories of non-personally identifiable information collected by BestJuiceMakers.
Functional user information is information that needs to be collected from our users in order to display the website correctly. In this category, you can find information such as browser type, operating system information, hardware information (i.e. whether the device you are using to access a website is a computer or a mobile device) and information about the software necessary to display website information correctly.
BestJuiceMakers also collects some information from users to for marketing purposes. The information collected relates to users’ browsing history, internet searches and topics of interest. This information is used by third-party providers to display content that would suit the interests of the user.
Statistical information is general information about our users that help us better understand our readership. It relates to the content of our website and how our users interact with it. For example, we note which pages on BestJuiceMakers have been visited most often, for how long and what pages users went to afterwards.
This information is internally, to help us improve our content and website to better serve the needs and interests of our readership.
Note that our website, BestJuiceMakers, is part of the Amazon Affiliate Program. As an Amazon affiliate, we may share some non-personally identifiable information with Amazon of the type described in the marketing information subsection above.
