1. What are "Cookies"?

Cookies are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes.

A Cookie will typically contain the name of the of the domain from which che cookie has come, the lifetime of the cookie and a randomly generated unique number or other value.

You can check how cookies from this website appear by navigating to (i.e. Chrome browser) Settings > Advanced > Content settings > Cookies > See all cookies and site data > thejackhome.com (search in the filter)

2. Why do I use cookies and which services do I use?

Like most websites, I use cookies for analytical purposes through monitoring and analyzing web traffic and user behaviour.

For example I check where my visitors are coming from. This is useful to understand in which language I should focus on with my articles.
I also analyze which pages are visited and which are not, basically what the interests of my readers are. This helps me to focus on articles and subjects which are more relevant to you.

For the above mentioned purpose I use specifically a third-part partner which is Google and its Google Analytics service.

Google Analytics code is visible at the bottom of each page on this site (navigate through the source code) and it is enhanced with the anonymized IP parameter.
This integration shortens your IP address by setting the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. The full IP address is never written to disk in this case.

3. What type of data is tracked?

When you visit a page on this website, Google Analytics' tracking snippet processes this data and provide me with a set of useful insights, including:

  • the total time a user spends on the site
  • the time a user spends on each page and in what order those pages were visited
  • what internal links were clicked (based on the URL of the next pageview)

In addition, what the IP address, user agent string, and initial page inspection analytics.js does when creating a new tracker is used to determine things like the following:

  • the geographic location of the user
  • what browser and operating system are being used
  • screen size and whether Flash or Java is installed
  • the referring site

The above information are not shared with any other Google services nor with other third-part companies.
In particular Google Analytics Adverstising Features (which include above all Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographic, Interest Reporting, etc.) is completelety TURNED OFF.

thejackhome is completely ads-free.

4. Reject the use of cookies

Users who don't want their data collected with Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. This add instructs Google Analytics javascript code running on this website to prohibit sending information to Google Analytics.

To make use of this functionality, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.
