The privacy of our visitors to https://www.politicspoliticalforum.com is important to us.

At Political Forum, Live Political Chat and Blogs discussing political and social issues., we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit https://www.politicspoliticalforum.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

  • 3rd Party Cookie Info

    Cookies To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

    What are cookies? A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the 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?

    Measuring our visitors

    We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

    The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

    You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

    Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

    These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

    To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

    Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

    Forum & Discussion

    To allow visitors to discuss our blog articles and some web pages we use a discussion system called Vbulletin.

    To do so we embed code that Vbulletin provide and we do not control ourselves. Vbulletin anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Vbulletin service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.

    Logging in to Vbulletin can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Vbulletin will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Vbulletin activity may be personally identifiable.

    Vbulletin will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.

    How to control cookies

    You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
