How this website treats personal data


This site uses cookies, small text files that are placed on your machine to help websites distinguish you from other users and provide better user experiences. Generally, cookies tell a Web server that you have returned to a specific page. In doing so, cookies retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymized traffic data to third-party applications like Google Analytics.

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish, and might prefer to disable cookies on this site and others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. You can delete all cookies already on your computer and can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. Doing this, however, may require manually adjusting some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functions may not work. To disable cookies, consult the Help section of your browser or check the About Cookies website for guidance.

Alternatively, you can control some third-party cookies by using a privacy enhancement platform such as WebChoices: Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Choice Tool for US or Your Online Choices: A Guide On Behavioral Advertising.

Third-party vendors also may use cookies on this website, which might include persistent cookies to help this website improve visitor experience, manage site content, and analyze traffic. Such information is shared externally only on an anonymous, compiled/group basis. This website also uses a third party to send email to registered followers.

ChromoChallenges doesn’t share personal information with third-party companies. Only ChromoChallenges admin can access cookies created by this website.

Third-party companies, however, may use traffic info to this and other websites to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services you might find interesting. If you do share personal info with third-party companies, that might be shared with others.

Similar to cookies, Log Files may be used. Log Files, typically used by site hosting companies, merely log website visitor internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and, possibly, number of clicks.  This info is used for site admin purposes and to analyze traffic needs. IP addresses and other such info are not linked to any info that is personally identifiable.

Similar to cookies, Web Beacons may be used. A web beacon is a small graphic that monitors/collects certain info about web page viewers, and/or web-based document or email message. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or email, including HTML-based content, can act as a web beacon. Web beacons may be used to count visitors to web pages or to monitor how traffic uses the website, and may be included in email messages to count how many messages sent were actually opened, acted upon, or forwarded.

Similar to cookies, this website might include Embedded Content (e.g. videos, images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites acts in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor interactions with embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
