Each time a visitor comes to a WorldNetDaily.com site, our servers collect some basic technical information, including the visitor's domain name (e.g., whether the user is logged on to the internet from aol.com or whitehouse.gov), referral data (e.g., we record the address of the URL a user visited prior to clicking through to a WorldNetDaily.com site) and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform).
We also track the visitor's activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g., tracking where traffic comes from, and how traffic flows within the WorldNetDaily.com sites, etc.) We may merge information about visitors and visits into group data, which may be shared on an aggregate basis with our advertisers.
However, we will not disclose your individual identity or personally
identifiable data to any party.
When we do present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will
be able to identify you or contact you.
WorldNetDaily.com and cookies
for visitors. Cookies are used with our online polls to insure accurate results by allowing only one vote per computer on the current questions.
Other sites that place advertisements on our site, or which we may provide a link referencing an article that is available to view on WorldNetDaily.com, also have the ability to assign their cookies to you in a process that WorldNetDaily.com does not control.
Cookies cannot be used to identify individuals, only machines. So these advertisers will not know who a visitor is, nor will they have any personally identifiable information about a visitor.
