What information do we collect?

We don't collect any of your personal information unless you contact us through out contact form, e-mail or otherwise. We do, however, collect the non-personal aggregate information, such as your IP address (a numerical code that looks like 123.45.67.89 that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you connect to the internet), and if possible the domain name, as well as the type of browser and operating system that you use to access our website. If you clicked on the link to the Samarins.com website from another website, we also collect the address of that referral website.

How do we use collected information

We use this non-personal aggregate information to know where the visitor to our website come from and what technology they use; this helps us adjust our website design and other parameters to serve you better. For example, if our visitors use a specific browser, such as Internet Explorer 6, we test our design with the same browser to make sure our pages render correctly.
However, we do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.
If you contact us using our Contact form, we might use the information you provide to respond to your question or suggestion. We don't send regular newsletters and we do not share, sell or rent this information to any third parties, unless, of course, this will be required by law.

Links to Third Parties

The Samarins.com web site has some links to other websites. When you click on such links, including ad banners and other links, you will be accessing third-party websites that Samarins.com does not control or operate. These sites may collect anonymous and personal information by various methods, including the use of cookies. Of course, the privacy policies of these web sites may not be the same as that of the Samarins.com website and may not afford visitors and citizens the same level of protection. Visitors should contact these advertisers to verify the privacy policies of these web sites and their terms of use when accessing them and prior to providing any anonymous or personal information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Cookies are small pieces of information that a Web site transfers to a visitor's computer for record-keeping purposes while at the site. The use of cookies is an industry standard and you'll find cookies at most major Web sites. We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. We provide a lot of useful information on our website that requires a lot of work to write and research. To support our website, we use third party advertisements. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and/or web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google 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 (showing Canadian ads to someone in Canada, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

DART Cookies

We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google's DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ('interest based targeting'). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses 'non personally identifiable information'. It does NOT track your personal information. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting Google ad and content network privacy policy.
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to log-in to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
