Google Analytics

This site does NOT use Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping companies to understand how you use their site and ways to learn how they can improve your experience.  For more information on Google Analytics cookies, see the official Google Analytics page.

Google Adsense

The Google AdSense service we use to serve advertising uses a DoubleClick cookie to serve more relevant ads across the web and limit the number of times that a given ad is shown to you. For more information on Google AdSense see the official Google AdSense privacy FAQ. We use adverts to offset the costs of running this site and provide funding for further page development. The behavioral advertising cookies used by this site are designed to ensure that we provide you with the most relevant adverts where possible by anonymously tracking your interests and presenting similar things that may be of interest. In some cases we may provide you with custom content based on what you tell us about yourself either directly or indirectly by linking a social media account. These types of cookies simply allow Google to provide you with content that may be of interest to you. There are ways to block ads. Using Duck Duck go for example will block ads. However many sites solely rely on Adsense revenue, or as an additional supply of revenue to stay in business and may disallow you access to their site if you ad block. Our settings chosen in Google Adsense will allow you to consent to personalized ads or choose your own preferences. This dialogue box will come up from Adsense when you access the site.

Google Adsense was set to Non personalized ads setting in the EU to fully comply with EU law. You can also always shut off cookies, and/or use ad blocking. We do not target the UK or EU but have settings put to the non personalized setting as per Google Adsense EEA UK guidelines. This is done in case we do happen to get visitors from time to time from the EU, UK. Your use of the site in the EU, UK, is up to your consent to use cookies or not use the site. Be aware that we do not advertise in the EU or UK. Updated: We have now initiated the option provided in Google Adsense for you to decide on exactly what ad preferences you prefer and a dialogue box will come up allowing to select your choice for yourself. Please select your option upon arrival to the site. Consent, Do Not Consent, Manage Consent

California Consumer Privacy Act

Bitbetbuddy has checked the radio button to restrict data processing to California residents as a courtesy even though we do not do business there, or target California in any way. However since we may get unsolicited visitors from California from time to time via search engines this restricted setting has been set anyhow. Updated: Although we believe that this site does not currently apply to the requirements for needing to use a CCPA message, none the less in respect of California law, we chose to click on this option in Google Adsense allowing for California residents to opt out regardless. Adsense will show this option to California residents should they happen to find our site online.

Restricted data processing

You can choose from two options for your account for users who Google determines are in California. If you don’t make any changes, data processing won’t be restricted and personalized ads will continue to show on your site. Learn more

Don’t restrict data processing
When you choose don’t restrict data processing, there is no change to the way Google uses data. Google will continue to show personalised ads to eligible users in California. Personalised ads are based on a user’s past behaviour such as previous visits to sites or apps, or location.
Restrict data processing
When you choose restrict data processing, Google restricts how it uses certain unique identifiers and other data. Google will only show non-personalised ads to eligible users in California. Non-personalised ads are based on contextual information, such as the content of your site or app. Learn more
