Privacy Policy

Privacy matters, but it may be confusing. Here, we explain our approach to privacy policy on Perspective IX (“we,” “our,” “us”) website and how it affects you.

Overview

We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed. Some 3rd parties like GoogleFacebook, and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, only the name and email address which you have used to subscribe to the newsletter are identifiable. We use this to deliver the newsletters to you. However, we do not sell or share this information with anybody else.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our website.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our website are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Social Networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so, we embed the code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

Cookies

Our website may use cookies to record user-specific information such as which pages the user access or visit or preferences or other information that the visitors send using their web browsers.

Furthermore, our website has advertising partners, such as Google AdSense and Amazon Associates, who may use cookies when you use our website.

These 3rd party ad servers or ad networks use different technologies to provide ads directly to your browsers. They automatically receive your IP address when you visit our website. Other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) may also be used by the third-party ad networks to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and/or to personalise the advertising content you see.

We have no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices. Our privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers’ respective websites.

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to discuss our blog posts and some web pages we use a discussion system called Disqus.

To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.

Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook, Twitter, and Google. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.

Disqus will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people

Updates to our privacy policy

We may update our privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version.
