Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy pertains to the information collected from users of the Cornucopia Website, nuco-comic.com (hereafter Nuco-Comic), and details the nature, storage, and usage of this information.

Data Collection and Storage

Nuco-Comic uses the privacy-compliant, open source analytics software Piwik to gather certain non-personally-identifying data about Nuco-Comic visitors. This data includes info supplied by the user-agent header, the anonymized IP address, duration of site visit, referrers, date and time of site visit, country of origin, downloads from the site, and language preference.

Use of Data

Piwik uses the data it collects for Nuco-Comic to automatically generate informational charts and reports. Usage information is only accessible to the Nuco-Comic site owners and is used to better understand our visitors, the devices used to access this website, which channels generate the most site traffic, whether new readers are accessing the site, and general trends in readership. This in turn allows us to improve the site and find new ways to attract viewers.

User data logs are permanently deleted from the Nuco-Comic database after 180 days.
