Data Collection

Like most websites, LezWatch.Commercials collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LezWatch.Commercials also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This information is not used to identify visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Certain visitors to LezWatch.Commercials choose to interact with the website in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who leave comments are required to provide a display name and email address. In each case, LezWatch.Commercials collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the site. Information is not disclosed other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Comments: When visitors leave comments on the website, the collected data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string are saved in order to help spam detection as well as monitor and prevent abuse and harassment by visitors.

Cookies: Visitors who leave a comment on this site may opt in to saving their name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for convenience so that they do not have to fill in your details again when they leave another comment. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using this website, with the drawback that certain features may not function properly without the aid of cookies. For additional details regarding cookie consent notices, please refer to cookiechoices.org
