The privacy of the visitors to yuprocks.com is of utmost important to us.
The text below details what types of personal information are received or collected when visitors arrive at yuprocks.com, and how we protect the information collected. Yuprocks.com will not sell, give away, or distribute any of your personal information to third parties.
As with most websites, yuprocks.com collects and utilizes the data contained in server log files. Information provided in log files includes the following:
- visitor IP (internet protocol) address
- visitor ISP (internet service provider)
- the browser used to visit yuprocks.com
- the time the visit occurred, and which pages were visited/viewed
Third party advertisements are displayed on yuprocks.com to support site hosting costs, and provide a small offset to the large amount of personal time invested by the site owner. Yuprocks.com uses Google Adsense for its ad displays, as well as small, private text links to our sponsor websites on specific pages. Advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as 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 (i.e., showing Wyoming mineral collector ads to someone in Wyoming) or for tailoring ads based on a visitors recent site traffic (i.e., recently visited sites about rocks and minerals will generate ads related to that topic).
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in most virus protection programs. However, this may affect how you as a visitor are able to interact with websites, and could prevent login to services, programs, forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not result in opting out of advertising programs. Unless the visitor has settings that disallow cookies, the next visit to a site running advertisements will result in the addition of a new cookie.
