We like privacy around here. In fact, Dominik constantly keeps telling us how important it is that our antivirus and VPN software is up to date. With that in mind, we figured we’d go over some of your data we collect and how it helps expand our services to you and other users.

Knowing how you navigate our site and what interests you on it lets us update and upgrade sections accordingly, as well as introduce new features that we previously handn’t thought of. While most website owners approach site design from an outside perspective, we tend to look at it from the inside. Once our users have arrived on a certain page on BrightSideofNews.com, where are they heading to next? Which sections of our site are the most interesting and helpful to them? Are there parts of our website that make our visitors’ experience more difficult due to lack of accessibility, and can be improved upon in this regard? Keeping a close eye on what you do while you’re on our website answers all of these questions and more, resulting in an even better site down the line. That’s right: by simply browsing through our website, you are helping us improve it and make it easier to find for those in need of help?
As you browse our website, you might notice that a website called ShareDF is a prominent part of our set-up. While we’re all about Tech News, ShareDF is all about manuals, and while the two aren’t mutually exclusive, the latter is growing to become the best manual repository for consumers, professionals and alike!
To this end, we share some of the visitor information we’ve gathered with our partner website, ShareDF. This information only includes Non-personal identification information outlined above.
