Wide Open News follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and are a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Like any other website, Wide Open News uses ‘cookies’. These cookies are used to store information including visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.
We take all precautions to ensure the protection of your personal data. Nevertheless, we are unable to guarantee security due to fact that there is no totally secure way to transmit data over the internet or electronic storage.
Adding security for kids to use the internet is also one of our priorities. We encourage parents and guardians to watch over, engage with, and/or supervise their children’s online activities.
No Personal Identifiable Information is intentionally gathered by Wide Open News from children under 13. We highly recommend that you get in touch with us right away if you believe your youngster submitted this kind of information on our website.
