Privacy Policy

At Tech Elucidations, accessible from techelucidations.com, one of our main priorities is the privacy of our visitors. This Privacy Policy document contains types of information that is collected and recorded by Tech Elucidations and how we use it.

If you have additional questions or require more information about our Privacy Policy, do not hesitate to contact us.

Do Note that this privacy policy applies only to our online activities and is valid for visitors to our website with regards to the information that they shared and/or collect in Tech Elucidations. This policy is not applicable to any information collected offline or via channels other than this website.

Consent
By using our website, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms.

We totally understand that as a user/reader of Tech Elucidations you trust our website when it comes to any personal information you share with us. The website’s Privacy Policy clearly states the three Ws of data collection, viz. what all user-related data we gather, why we collect it, and what we do with it.

Tech Elucidations is focused on breaking tech news, which effectively means we always strive to explore and highlight information we believe our readers should be made aware of. From smart tech products like smartphones and wearables to popular web services like Google’s YouTube and Gmail, our coverage spans any and everything related to technology. We also provide How to guides on some topics right now and will improve and expand our variety in the coming times.

Anyone who visits the site can easily search and access all available information. In addition, readers can also share their thoughts and opinions by commenting on news stories merely by logging in through Disqus (as we use Disqus Comments).

We have social networking accounts on micro-blogging site Twitter as well as Instagram and Facebook. Readers can follow us on these platforms to receive notifications, share any relevant information, and/or engage in an active conversation.

While we are already quite active on all social media platforms we have a presence on, in case you want to reach out privately, feel free to contact us through email

Information we collect

Currently, Tech Elucidations isn’t directly involved in collecting any personal user-data, but some third-party services or products it uses do gather information of users/readers who visit our website. So following is what you need to know in this regard:

Google Analytics: The statistics generated by Google Analytics – a popular web analytics service from Google – does require the service to fetch some user information, something it does using cookies. To know more about Google Analytics in this context, you can head to their Terms of Service page and Google’s generic privacy policy.

Google clearly explains how the company uses data when you use their products like AdSense or Analytics – click here and here for details.

Note 1: For revenue generation, we may go for online advertising on our website in near future. We will update the privacy policy as and when that happens. We are currently not using any of the ads network.

Note 2: However, we would like to share with you in advance that most ad vendors, including Google, use cookies in order to serve ads that are based on users’ prior visits to the website in question or other websites they’ve visited in the past.

Cookie policy.

A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website. The cookie may collect information relating to your use of the Website, information about your device such as the device’s IP address and browser type, demographic data and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
