Nerd Vittles Privacy Policy

If you visit Nerd Vittles, we obviously know where you came from and what pages you accessed on our site. Every web server captures logs of this information including ours, and we do not share this data except in the aggregate using tools such as Google Analytics. This helps us educate ourselves about topics of interest to you and helps us plan future articles. If you don’t want us to know you visited, don’t visit. It’s as simple as that.

You do, however, have control over cookies stored on your own computer by us. A cookie is simply a technology for remembering something about you. Without cookies, a website is like a goldfish who loses its memory every time you visit a new page. Once you visit a new page, it doesn’t remember who you are.

Cookies can be a good and a bad thing. Without any memory, a website can’t do a lot of stuff. But it also means it can’t track you. Some websites use cookies to remember what you do on the website, and to target ads at you. And some websites share their cookies, so that ads on one website know what you liked on another. This has scared a lot of people. If you click on a link that goes to a site not controlled by Nerd Vittles, that site may or may not adhere to our privacy policy. They probably have their own.

So… Cookies aren’t automatically good or bad, but it’s worth understanding what you can do about them.

Well over 90% of websites use cookies. You can turn them off on the Nerd Vittles site completely or surf the web elsewhere which is a bit like banning all music to prevent another Justin Bieber song from playing. That’s your call to make.

A better option would be to turn off 3rd party cookies, which will stop most websites from sharing information about you. Some browsers – like Safari – do this automatically.

We hope this brief explanation helps clarify our privacy policy and what options are available to you. If you have further questions, send an email to support [at] nerdvittles.com, and we’ll get back to you with a prompt response.
