Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, allow our paywall and meter to function, and personalize content and other information.

GdGizmo.com doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the GdGizmo.com network (which encompasses GdGizmo.com and custom domains hosted by GdGizmo).

Some third-party services that we use to provide the GdGizmo.com Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Medium only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts and Pages on this website may contain affiliate links, meaning, I recommend products and services I’ve used or know well and may receive a commission if you purchase them too (at no additional cost to you).Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Here’s the cookies clause from Amazon’s Privacy Notice

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy & Cookies Policy applies only to the Services. The Services may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by Product Hunt. We are not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions expressed in such websites, and such websites are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy or completeness by us. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Services to another website, our Privacy & Cookies Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our Site, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Such third parties may use their own cookies or other methods to collect information about you.

Google Analytics

The World Wide Web is made up of two types of cookies: first and third party cookies. Google Analytics uses first party cookies to capture data about its web visitors.

Google Analytics uses four main cookies to capture the full picture of your customer journey:

  • __utma
  • __utmb
  • __utmc
  • __utmz

Each of these has a different role, as well as a different way of expiring. Every cookie, not only Google Analytics cookies, either expires when the browser closes or when it reaches its expiration date.

Who we share your data with

We don’t gather our website visitors data as members as www.gdgizmo.com does not offer a membership subscription.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

Information Disclosure

Gdgizmo won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: with your consent to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonomization when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

Data Storage

Gdgizmo uses third-party vendors and hosting partners for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run GdGizmo.com. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using GdGizmo.com Services, you authorize GdGizmo.com to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.

Changes to this Policy

GdGizmo.com may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here and we will archive former versions of the policy here.
