What information we collect: Unless specifically and explicitly communicated otherwise, the only information or data point we collect is IP address, which the EU considers to be personally identifiable information, and can can be used for ad targeting purposes. By clicking the 'Got it' button on the cookie consent banner on the homepage, you are consenting to and agreeing to the collection of this information. Depending on the information and/or services you request, you may be asked to provide your name, email address and other information. In addition to the information you knowingly provide, PaliMedia collects the domain names and IP addresses of its visitors, along with usage statistics (e.g., types of web browsers and operating systems used) and browsing history. This data is used to more efficiently operate PaliMedia's business, promote our products and services and administer the Website. Palimedia may combine this information with the personally identifiable and other information it collects.
This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customize your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.
What are ‘cookies’?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately.
Site performance cookies
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:- volume settings for our video player
– whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first
– video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser
Anonymous analytics cookies
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’.These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to the website, we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.
When you register with the website, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username.
If you have not selected ‘keep me signed in’, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer.
While you are signed into either of the sites, we combine information from your registration cookies with analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen on the website.
Other third party cookies
On some pages of our website, other organizations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customize the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organization access the data in cookies we use on our website.
For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on the website, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
