Information Collection and Use

We collect personal information when you register on our site and / or when you sign in to your account. The information collected includes your username, your e-mail address and a password. They are used to identify you on the site, secure your account to ensure the confidentiality of your information, and communicate with you as part of our services. Depending on your use of the site, other information will be associated with your account: favorite keywords, sources and products followed, etc. None of this information is shared with a third party.

In addition, whether you are logged in or not, we automatically receive and store anonymous data from your computer and browser, such as your location (country), your configuration (device type, browser type) and the pages you visit on our site. This data is collected via Google Analytics and used to measure traffic on the site and improve the quality of our services.

Finally, third-party sites indexed by ComicArtTracker can also collect information as soon as you view images they host. They can store them in a cookie, combine them with other information that you could have provided elsewhere on other sites, and use them to provide you with personalized content outside of ComicArtTracker (see following chapters).

Analytics Cookies

Analytics Cookies collect anonymous information about your use of ComicArtTracker, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, Analytics Cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on ComicArtTracker and help us record any difficulties you have with the Site. Analytics Cookies allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use information from Analytics Cookies to analyze traffic on ComicArtTracker, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information. By disabling these cookies, site traffic analyses will no longer be as relevant.

Other Third-Party Cookies

Certain sites referenced by ComicArtTracker (auction houses, dealers, artists, etc.) may create their own cookies as soon as you view an image of one of the products they offer. ComicArtTracker has no control over third-party cookies and can not block them on its own, but it is possible for you to setup your browser to ask it to block any third-party cookie (see next section). It will have no negative effect on ComicArtTracker
