Soitsfun cookies, web beacons and other software

Hi, we are all about Soitsfun! You’re probably here because you’re interested to know more about how we use cookies, web beacons and other similar software. As a part of our commitment to upholding a high standard of transparency in our Privacy Policy, we’ve created this guide to explain the tracking options we use on our sites.

Just to be clear, our sites include all those that are owned and operated within Soitsfun Media Inc.  Soitsfun does not at any time share user information or email addresses to any third party subject to our Terms and Conditions.

What are cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies?

Typically, there are two types of tracking technologies we might use on our sites:

  1. Cookies: Surprisingly, are not the fun-type you eat; they’re actually a small data file sent from a server to your web browser or mobile device that is stored on your browser cache or mobile device. There are ways you can control your cookies preferences and set whether you want to accept or reject cookies (see what your options are below).
  2. Clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs: These are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the movements of web users between pages and websites. Unlike cookies, which are cached on a user’s computer, clear gifs, web beacons and web bugs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of a single pixel.

What do we do with these technologies?

We use these tracking technologies for a few general purposes like:

  1. To allow our sites to function correctly.
  2. To understand how our sites are functioning and to inform any improvements in performance and our services.
  3. To enhance your experience on our sites and provide functionality that means for example you don’t have to re-enter your details each time you engage with our sites or to record what purchases you’ve made on our sites.
  4. To gather relevant data that helps us deliver marketing and advertising content relevant to your interests.

What personal information do we collect?

  1.  Naturally we collect real name, user name, City, State/Prov, country, postal/zip code and email for identification and verification purposes.
  2.  Your location, city, Prov - State and Country is used for site personalization as well as delivery of activities and home events.
  3.  If you are a contributor or author with Soitsfun, then additional contact information is collected in accordance with media security and governace.
  4.  City, State/Prov, country or postal code is to deliver your content or select advertising that is relevant to your community.

We might sometimes partner with third-party services (ie: Google) who may use various tracking technologies to provide certain services or features on our sites, including online marketing or relevant on-site messaging. These third-party services use cookies to anonymously collect data and allow them to recognise your computer or mobile device each time you visit any of our sites ads. No personally identifiable information is collected by these cookies. The anonymous data they collect is kept separate from the personal information about you as a user that we collect.
