Cookies

To make this site work properly, many pages place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this.

What are cookies?

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.

How do we use cookies?

1. Forum.

 If you register with my satsig forum it uses cookies to enable essential functionality such as logging in and
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.

2. Adverts: Google Adsense, Infolinks etc

This site depends on third party advertisements for its income. These ads may appear on forum pages and many of the non-forum static html pages. These ads generate third party cookies. Ads from third parties 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 Until 24 Feb 2022 I configured it so that Google adverts should be non-personalised and based on the page context and not on your previous history with Google. Since 24 Feb 2022 I have implemented a new GDPR consent message allowing you the option to either consent to personalised ads or to configure your arrangement otherwise. I am able to specifically ban ranges of unsuitable categories of ads (for example, sex and sexuality, alcohol and gambling) 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/. If you see unsuitable ads from identifiable sources please tell me eric@satsig.net as I can block certain advertisers if necessary.

3. Social media icons.

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.

How can you control cookies ?

Using your browser, you can control and/or delete cookies as you wish or set your browser to prevent cookies from being placed at all. If you do this you may wish, for some sites such as this one to manually adjust some preferences for this specific site if you wish to see adverts and make use of forum membership functionality. Many pages will not work properly if you turn off javascript. If you have javascript turned off you need to enable it for this site to work as intended.

How we control cookies ?

Update Feb 2022:   Starting today, to comply with EU GDPR policies we use a free system, recommended by Google. I have replaced on my older cookie consent process and implemented the Google GDPR consent message software. This is now working. This new Google GDPR consent message process involves the initial display of a message asking for your consent to use your personal data to:
1. Personalised ads and content, ad and content measurement, audience insights and product development.
2. Store and/or access information on a device.
You may Consent or Manage Options regarding these consents.
