If I am just a site visitor reviewing information via an Internet browser, but I do not make use of the services available, will Nerdymates gather my personal data?

We do not collect the personal information of every Web visitor evaluating or accessing the information on our site. If you allow, we may put pixels or session cookies on your personal computer.

The Technologies Backing Nerdymates

We rely on a variety of technological resources, and this allows us to take full advantage of the innovative means in which people communicate.

Nerdymates make use of cookies: tiny packets of information that gets stored on your mobile device or desktop computer. We also make use of Pixels: tiny portions of code placed on our webpages. The use of pixels allows us to make use of site analytics tools so we can observe who is visiting the site, number of visits and page downloads. A separate server collects information. Cookies and Pixels are often used in conjunction with one another. The information we can gather from cookies use includes the specific time and date you access the pages on our site, links you choose to access, page views, and IP address assigned to your computer, laptop, tablet, or other mobile devices through your Internet Provider. The cookies Nerdy-Mates uses to deliver relevant advertisements and to record the efficiency and performance of our latest advertising campaigns include just some of the following: AdRoll, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Yandex.
