Data Collection and Storage
The types of data we collect include the visitor's browser and operating system (supplied by the user-agent header), an anonymized IP address, approximate city and country of origin, referring links, date and time of site visit, and pages visited. Cookies are used to determine if the anonymous visitor is a new or returning reader, and in the case of the latter, when they last visited the site.
Visitor data is stored on W3Counter's servers for 30 days, where it is accessible by the Nuco-Comic site team. We do not knowingly share this data with third parties other than W3Counter.
Use of Data
W3Counter uses the data it collects for Nuco-Comic to automatically generate informational graphs and reports. This information is only accessible to the Nuco-Comic site owners and is used to better understand what devices used to access this website, which channels generate the most site traffic, and general trends for new and returning readers. This in turn allows us to improve the site and find new ways to attract viewers.
IntenseDebate stores the email address of commenters who supply an email on the comment form or who authenticate using IntenseDebate, WordPress.com, or Twitter credentials, as well as the IP address of all commenters. These are viewable by Nuco-Comic's administrators when editing or moderating comments and are used only for blacklisting spammers and viewing recent logged in site visitors. Email and IP addresses are not publically visible and are stored on IntenseDebate's servers.
Changes to This Policy
Nuco-Comic's tracking code will respect your browser's Do Not Track setting (you'll get a message in the console if it's on). This should be all you need to opt-out of tracking scripts on Nuco-Comic. Opting out will not affect your experience of the website in any way, except psychologically. ;)
Alternatively, W3Counter and other Awio Web Services offer an opt-out form on their website that sets a third-party do-not-track cookie on your browser which will disable tracking services on all W3Counter-enabled sites, including Nuco-Comic. However, this preference will be voided if you disable or clear your cookies.
Double alternatively, you can use a privacy browser plugin, such as Ghostery, to protect your data on Nuco-Comic and other sites.
Nuco-Comic is owned by Brendan Blaber and the website is managed by his dumb little sister Plasterbrain.
