Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Affiliates
Please use the following links to review privacy policies of Our major advertisers and traffic analysis companies:
PissedConsumer.com uses a software technology called "cookies." Cookies are small text files that We and certain third parties place in visitors' computer browsers to store their preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell Us Your e-mail address or other Personal Information unless You choose to provide this information to Us by, for example, registering at Our Site. However, once You choose to furnish the Site with Personal Information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
We use ads provided by third-party advertisers to support the Site. 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 (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including Your IP address, Your ISP, the browser You used to visit Our Site, and in some cases, whether You have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing real estate ads to someone who frequents realty sites).
You may adjust your browser to reject cookies from Us or from any other website. Please consult the "Help" section of Your browser for more information. However, certain areas of Our Site can only be accessed in conjunction with cookies or similar identifiers and You should be aware that disabling cookies or similar identifiers might prevent You from accessing some of Our content.
In addition to cookies, We also utilize MD5 hashing algorithms at the stages of registration and complaint posting. In the event a user decides to post a complaint on Our Site and chooses to provide his/her e-mail address, such a user receives a thank-you e-mail containing a link to the complaint. This link includes a hash which, provided that a user follows it, ensures that such a user has an option to log in and/or register automatically by utilizing data stored on Our server from such user’s initial visit. Thus, We make your experience of using Our Site more convenient.
