Information You Voluntarily Submit

We may collect personal information from you such as your name, email address, and your website information. This happens, for example, when you voluntarily submit your site to us for a link exchange or a directory submission with this information.

Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent.

For this, we use Google Analytics, which when you visit our site, logs your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, the dates or times when you accessed our website, as well as your general location. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked and the length of time you remain on a particular page.

Advertising and Cookies

ScarySites.net derives part of its revenue from third party advertising companies, which serve ads when you visit our Web site. We currently use both Google Adsense and sometimes Amazon.com affiliate links for this purpose. These third-party companies may use nonpersonal identifying information about your visits to this Web site in order to provide advertisements that may be of interest to you.

This information is gathered in the form of cookies or Web beacons that third parties may place and read on your browser.

How Cookies Work

A cookie is collected when you visit a Web site. The cookie itself contains no personal identifying information, but it does enable us and advertisers to track user traffic patterns.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. Also see the following: Our Cookie Policy.

The Double Dart Cookie

In addition, we participate in the Google Adsense program in which we use Google as a third party vendor to show ads on our site. Google uses cookies to serve the ads. Specifically, Google uses the double click dart cookie to show you ads based on your visits to this site and other sites you have visited. What this means is that a cookie is placed on your browser that keeps track of sites you have visited to get a better estimate of your interests so that we can better serve ads based on your interests. Like other Web browser cookies, no personally identifying information is collected, other than your IP address. For more information of the dart cookie visit Google ad and content network privacy policy. For more information and to opt out of Google's use of the dart cookie visit Ads Settings.

ScarySites.net does not secretly collect personally identifying information about you (such as your name, email address, etc.) except when you knowingly provide such information during the site submission process. This information is used to contact you if there is a need for a revision to your site submission and to let you know where to find your link.

The websites linked to by ScarySites.net are developed by people over whom ScarySites.net has no control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. It is important that you preview their Privacy Policy and remove any cookies from your computer if you have any concerns.
