Collection of your personal data

We use Google Adsense to provide interest based advertisements for our users. Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on your prior visits to POST News or other websites. Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to POST News and/or other sites on the Internet. You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings. (Alternatively, you can direct users to opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.) If you do not opt out, Google will track your activity across various websites to provide advertisements that are relevant to you.

To gather metrics, such as pages viewed, operating system, browser and platform we use Paperclip. You can read their privacy policy here. Currently, they have no opt-out mechanism, but you can see your data on your dashboard.

We run interest based advertisements from Amazon, and use Affiliate links, which give us a small commission from the products you buy on amazon.co.uk within the 24 hours after you click on it, or up until you you click on someone else’s Affiliate link. Full details on commissions we earn are available here. Information on what we earn from Amazon bounties is available here. By continuing to use the website you agree to Amazon’s privacy notice.

When you submit your email to subscribe to our mailing list, it is sent to 1&1 Ionos, where it is added to a secure database. It will then be used for the purpose of keeping you informed of new articles and any activities relating to POST News. If your data is transferred abroad, it will be done so to EU standards.

We use Disqus to facilitate commenting on our articles. They will follow the do not track setting, if it is enabled in your web browser. You may also stop them tracking you by visiting their opt out page. By continuing to use this site, you agree to their privacy policy.

Under EU law, you are entitled to disable non-functional cookies, which can be done through our Cookie Policy. You may also disable tracking, which you can do through the third parties listed above. You have no entitlement to refuse functional cookies. However, you can disable these cookies through your web browser.

If you are a citizen of an EU member state, you may request your data by emailing our Privacy Desk. We will then send you all the data we have relating to you. You can request your data from Disqus by emailing them at privacy@disqus.com.
