The privacy of our visitors is important to us.

We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Below is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit PfRC, and how we safeguard your information. We will never (what never? no, never!) sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as Deutsche Telekom or Kabel Deutschland), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Safari or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once during your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements here to support our site and generate a bit of revenue. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers information including your internet protocol address, your service provider, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash player enabled or not. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing Stuttgart real estate ads to someone in Stuttgart, z.B.) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

Cookies

We also may use cookies for ad serving through our affiliate programme, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using certain advertising protocols. This cookie is used to deliver ads specific to you and your interests. The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Azerbaijan, you may see Baku hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). Cookies use non-personally identifiable information. It does NOT track personal information about you, so I am told, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by reviewing the Google DoubleClick/AdSense privacy policy.

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in anti-viral, ad-blocker or firewall programs. This can affect, however, how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.  Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

And the copyright boilerplate:

Many images posted here are found elsewhere on the internet and I do try to give the proper attribution to artists and those with visual ingenuity, but should any readers find something miscredited or misrepresented, please contact me for redress. Equally, many images posted here (and the accompanying ramblings, in the main) are my own creations that maybe used in whatever way one sees fit by non-corporate persons (my own works usually have the naming convention of ending in –sm), providing that one try to reciprocate with attribution and citation. The name “perfect for Roquefort cheese,” incidentally, comes from the 1998 Mystery Science Theater 3000 lampoon of the 1958 Jack Arnold film The Space Children, where an extra-terrestrial blob telepathically influences the dependents of a rocket research facility on a desolate beach, much to the dismay of their parents. The children discover a real-life cave, with the aside affirmation, “that will be perfect for our delicious Roquefort cheese.”

Thanks for visiting and any crumbs left about won’t offend.
