We at HowToAvoid are very keen about user privacy. Our practices exclude any kind user targeting that may allow to personally identify an user.
Furthermore, we do not collect any personal information from our users. We may log visits for aggregate statistics and diagnosis only.
HowToAvoid does not require any user registration. Users can freely navigate all website pages.
Cookies are small text files that are stored in your electronic device when you browse the websites to help provide you with the best experience possible.
To change your choices regarding cookie permissions, please click .
You can switch off cookies in your browser by adjusting its settings to stop accepting cookies. However, doing so will severily limit the functionality of most of the world's websites as cookies are widely used in the majority of them.
These cookies are used to obtain visitor statistics such as: how many visits have we got in our website, what type of technology/device are they using (e.g. Mac or Windows, mobile or desktop, which helps identify possible working issues for particular technologies), how long is the visit to the website, what was the viewed page, etc.
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. However, neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
Please note that advertising helps keep our service free, and opting out of advertising cookies will not disable ads. The ads will just no longer be tailored to you and your personal preferences.
This also brings more difficulties to keep our service free, given the lower value of this kind of advertising. We fund our website by showing ads as you browse the website pages. These ads are usually managed by a partner specialized in providing adverts for multiple sites. These partners invariably place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visit so that they can personalize the ads to you, ensure that you don't see the same ads too often, and ultimately report to advertisers which campaigns are working.
