INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We do not ask you or anyone else to give us any personal information in order to use Virus.com.
We do collect anonymised information to provide a better service to all our users – from improving our less popular pages to tracking the commissions that allow the site to operate as a free resource.
The only instance when we do collect personal information – specifically, your name and email address – is if, and only if, you might submit a review of one of the Software providers listed on our Site.
We collect information in the following ways:
Every time anyone visits our Site, we collect anonymised information about that visit. Like most big websites, we do this through Google Analytics software to better understand how people use our site. While we do not use Google Analytics to collect any personally identifying information (such as name or address), we do collect the following kinds of information:
- The pages you visit on Virus.com
- How long you spend on each page of our Site
- How you got to our Site
- What kind of device you were using
- Your home country and browser settings such as language
We use this information to better understand our customers and their needs in order to improve our service.
This information is anonymized and cannot be tied back to any individual. Nevertheless, we never share it with anyone outside of Super Source GmbH unless specifically required to by law.
This anonymized analytics information is stored behind secure log-ins that can only be accessed by Super Source GmbH employees using their official credentials.
Cookies and similar technologies
Like most websites, Virus.com puts small files (known as ‘cookies’) onto your computer to collect information about how you browse our Site.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not, and by allowing us to earn commissions.
A cookie does not give us access to your computer or any information about you. You can choose to accept or decline cookies through your browser settings. Look at aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance about how to do this.
We may implement third party advertising or other content on the Site that may use clear gifs or other forms of web beacons, which allow the third party content provider to read and write Cookies to your web browser in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Site.
Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow a third party to collect information about you through their browser Cookies, even when you do not interact with the button.
Information collected through web beacons and buttons is collected directly by third parties, and Virus.com does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
