Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 16, 2022

TheBeardedDragon.org understands that you want to know how the information about your visit is used. This page reflects TheBeardedDragon.org's privacy policy and explains how TheBeardedDragon.org gathers and uses information.

The following sections outline what information and how TheBeardedDragon.org collects information from our visitors.

Information You Share

The following describes how we deal with information you give us.

Automatically Generated Content

Portions of TheBeardedDragon.org may include services and features that require you to input information or data. While these pages do collect data, the data is only used to generate the content on the site (such as quiz/test results, correct code, images, etc.). We do not permanently store any of this data as it is not saved on the server. We may, however, choose to save usage volumes and averages based on a whole of all users for statistics. For example, we may see that 85% of users miss the same question on one of our website quizzes and use this information to re-write the question to improve clarity. You can choose not to provide certain information, but this may prevent you from being able to use these features/services.

Selling/Listing Items for Sale

Our website may occasionally include pages that allow individuals to advertise on TheBeardedDragon.org. Using these services will require you to create an account. The information within this account is used only to identify you as the account creator and to expedite your user experience from within the account management section. We will not sell or give out any of your private account information to third parties. You can choose to close your account at any time and request your account be permanently deleted from our server by contacting us through our contact us page.

Referrer, Browser, & Device Data

We receive and record certain types of information when you interact with our site. Examples of this information include browser cookies and IP addresses. This information is not used to identify individuals, but is instead used to save user preferences. For example, if you choose to view the non-mobile version of our site on a mobile device, our website will record your preference so you can browse future pages without having to re-specify which page version you want to view.

Navigation information may also be recorded and saved in log files for website analysis, advertising, and website statistics. Again, this information cannot identify individuals, but is instead used for statistic purposes.

3rd Party Cookies

TheBeardedDragon may use 3rd party services for analytics and advertising purposes. Below describes these services and how they are used.

Google Analytics

TheBeardedDragon uses Google Analytics to analyze web traffic and to help understand how visitors use and navigate our site. Google Analytics uses cookies and browser data to collect details about your visit such as visited pages, visit duration, device, and/or geographic location. Our site also may enable Google Advertising tracking which helps us understand how visitors interact with advertisements on our site. This service collects additional details about your visit such as demographic data and browsing habits.

Why we use this data

This helps us to understand how visitors use and navigate our site. For example, we can identify pages that have less than average visit duration and work to improve the content for that page.

Google Ad Cookies

TheBeardedDragon may display third party advertisements within the content of our pages. Third party vendors, such as Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's previous visit history. Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to server ads based on your visit to TheBeardedDragon.org and/or from other sites on the internet. You may opt-out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings and updating your preferences.
