Thank you for visiting www.ustimezonesmap.com (the “Site”). The Site is a privately owned Internet property. Each end-user visitor to the Site (“User”) agrees to the following Terms of Service in their entirety, when she/he accesses or uses the Site, accesses and/or views any media and/or other content featured on the Site.
We may amend these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion, without specific notice to our Users. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever you are accessing and/or using the Site.
The Site contains links to other websites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties including, without limitation, the Social Media Websites. The Site does not control the information, products or services available on/or through these third party websites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by the Site of the applicable website or any association with the website’s operators.
The Site does not claim any ownership rights and/or copyright in any third parties and/or User submitted content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your content. By making any content available to the Site you hereby grant a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform and distribute your User content.
The Site doesn’t collect and/or store personal information from the Users. The User doesn’t need a User account to access and/or use the Site.
The Site collects and uses non-identifiable information to analyze site activity, to serve ads and to improve the website by using Cookies. You have control over how this information is collected and used. You can find more information here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com and here: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions. Due to their core role of enhancing/enabling usability or site processes, disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain websites.
Session Cookies are also used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server’s pages. By default, web pages really don’t have any ‘memory’. Cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn’t have to remember or start navigating the site all over again. Cookies act as a sort of “bookmark” within the site. Similarly, cookies can store ordering information needed to make shopping carts work instead of forcing the user to remember all the items the user put in the shopping cart.
Persistent or tracking Cookies are also employed to store user preferences. Many websites allow the user to customize how information is presented through site layouts or themes. These changes make the site easier to navigate and/or lets user leave a part of the user’s “personality” at the site.
Cookies are NOT viruses. Cookies use a plain text format. They are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor are they self-executing. Accordingly, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks to execute and replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they fall outside the standard virus definition.
Cookies CAN be used for malicious purposes though. Since they store information about a user’s browsing preferences and history, both on a specific site and browsing among several sites, cookies can be used to act as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are well aware of this problem and routinely flag cookies as candidates for deletion after standard virus and/or spyware scans.
Most browsers have built in privacy settings that provide differing levels of cookie acceptance, expiration time, and disposal after a user has visited a particular site.
The Site also uses Google Analytics and Google Adsense services. For more information please visit: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/technologies/ads/, https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/ and http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
Google Analytics collects data about your traffic via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to data collected through the standard Google Analytics functions. The Site is NOT merging any personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product. The Site may use the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers.
The Site and/or third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as Google advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers together to collect aggregated statistics about the Site visitors so that we can better understand what areas of the Site are of interest to the User. This technology does not track any individually identifiable information, but rather records the User visit anonymously. The User can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features used, including through Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps or any other available means. The user can also use this Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on to prevent the data from being used by Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
