To make this site work properly, many pages place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
staying logged in and to post messages etc. By registering you are also giving explicit permission for those cookies to be placed on your computer.
This site depends on third party advertisements for its income. These ads appear on all forum pages and many of the non-forum static html pages. These ads generate third party cookies. Ads from Google may use information (which does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide personalised advertisements about goods and services which hopefully will be relevant and of interest to you. GDPR: Within the EEA I have configured it so that Google adverts should be non-personalised and based on the page context and not on your previous history with Google. I have specifically banned a range of unsuitable categories of ads (for example, sex and sexuality) from appearing on this site. If you would like more information about Google cookie practice and would like to know your options in relation to not having information used by Google, click here http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
Social media icons. Some pages have small icons allowing you to associate and interact with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube etc. These links create third party cookies, similar to Google above.
To comply with Google and EU policies we use a free system, recommended by Google, called Cookie Consent by SilkTide, available under GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE v3. This should, when you initially come to the site, display a cookies notification bar across the lower edge of the screen. Relevent static html pages on the website need amending and I am working to complete this. All the YaBB forum pages have been done using a single template.
"Satellite Signals", "SSL", "SatSig" and "Ivsat" are TradeMarks.
