PRIVACY POLICY

Don't worry. We've got you covered.

General

This site is all about fun. You might fool someone by using fakewindowsupdate.com but we don't fool you. We don't collect any private data or store anything on your computer.

So here is what we do and why we do it.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files which are transferred from our websites, applications or services and stored on your device. We use cookies to help us provide you with a personalised service, and to help make our websites, applications and services better for you.

Our cookies may be session cookies (temporary cookies that identify and track users within our websites, applications or services which are deleted when you close your browser or leave your session in the application or service) or persistent cookies (cookies which enable our websites, applications or services to “remember” who you are and to remember your preferences within our websites, applications or services and which will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser or leave your session in the application or service).

We use following cookies:

Google Analytics cookie
Google Adsense cookie
Amazon cookie

Server-Log-Files

When you go to a web site, web servers log your interaction with the site in something called a log file. There is no way to get around that. Standard log files like ours contain basic information like what time what pages were viewed, and the IP address of the visitor. We use this information to administer the site and in case of security issues. We make no effort to identify IP addresses with individual users. It is our policy to delete log files after a six months period or sooner. All log file information collected by fakewindowsupdate.com is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party unless we are required to do so by law.

Amazon

We are part of Amazons Affiliate Program. If you buy something from Amazon using one of the links on fakewindowsupdate.com we earn a fee for that.

Google Analytics

Like millions of other websites, we use Google Analytics on fakewindowsupdate.com. Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about our visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.

We do this to know where our users come from and how long they stay for.

We use the anonymize_ip function to hide your IP from Google (and from us), so there is no chance to indentify you.

You can check the Google Analytics Terms of Service here.

If you still feel uncomfortable you can also opt-out by using this link. Be aware that this only works on fakewindowsupdate.com.
There is also a browser addon you can install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
