Guesser operates a website located at https://guesser.com (the “Website”). Like most website operators, we automatically collect Non-Personal Information of the kind that web browsers and servers typically make available each time you use the Website. This information includes the type of internet browser, operating system, and language preference used by the visitor, as well as the referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Guesser’s purpose in collecting this type of information is to better understand how visitors use the Website so that it may improve the user experience. From time to time, we may disclose to others or publish Non-Personal Information in the aggregate, such as by compiling statistics and publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.
We do not use Google Analytics or any other third-party service to track the activities of visitors to the Website.
Certain visitors to the Website may choose to interact with Guesser in ways that require us to gather Personal Information, for example, by signing up to receive email notifications, purchasing a package of live election results from us on our Website, or contacting us with an inquiry. The amount and type of information that we gather on these occasions depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Guesser collects Personal Information only to the extent that it is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Visitors to the Website can always refuse to provide Personal Information that is requested of them, although it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities on the Website.
