Privacy Policy

In compliance with the EU GDPR, TecHLecToR (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the https://techlector.com website (the “Service”).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service.

What are cookies and why are they used in TecHLecToR.com

Cookies are small text files that a site, when visited, places on the user’s computer or on their mobile device through the browser. Using cookies will help the site recognize the user’s device on a future visit. We use the term cookie in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

It is important to note that the use of cookies does not collect personal data of the user, which remains anonymous for us.

You can configure your browser not to accept the use of cookies, in which case the customization of the experience will not be applicable, although it is still possible to access the content of our website normally.

On the Wikipedia page, you can learn more about what cookies do and how they work.

We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We use your Personal Information for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible at https://techlector.com

What kind of cookie do we use?

Cookies, depending on your stay, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first one expires when the user closes the browser. The second type expires when the purpose for which they are served is satisfied (for example, for the user to remain connected) or when manually deleted.

In addition, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as:

  • Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

  • Performance Cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit.

For example, in this type include:

    • Volume settings for VCRs or sound.
    • The video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.
  • Geolocation cookies

Cookies are used to determine which country the site or service is used. This cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help guide the content of your location.

  • Registration Cookies

They are generated when the user is registered or later opened their session, and are used to identify you on the web and services with the following objectives:

    • Keep the user identified so that if you close a web browser, service or computer and at another time or another day re-enter the service or web, will remain identified, thus facilitating your navigation without having to identify. This feature can be deleted if the user presses the “Exit” feature, so this cookie is deleted and the next time that you enter the site the user will have to re-authenticate to be connected.
    • Verify that the user is authorized to access certain services, such as participating in a contest.
    • In addition, some services may use third-party connectors such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google. When you enter a service with network credentials or a third-party identification system, you authorize the third party to maintain a persistent cookie that remembers your identity and guarantees access to the service until it expires. You may delete this cookie and revoke access to the service through third-party social networks or third-party identification systems by updating your preferences on the specific social network.
  • Analysis Cookies

Each time a user visits a site or service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics) generates a cookie on the user’s device. This cookie is only generated during the visit and will be used in future visits to anonymously identify visitors.

The main objectives are:

      • Allow anonymous identification of users browsing the website through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate number of visitors and their trend over time.
      • Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
      • If the user you are accessing is new or recurring.
  • Advertising Cookies

This type of cookie allows you to expand the information of the ads displayed to each anonymous user of TecHLecToR.com.

Among others, if you store the duration and frequency of the views, the interaction with them, the patterns and/or behavior of the user, which helps to establish an advertising interest profile. Thus, you can offer advertisements related to the interests of the user.

Advertising management tools ( AdServers ) from third parties are used for advertising management. These third parties can store cookies sent from TecHLecToR.com through users’ browsers and access the data stored in them.

Companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies.

TecHLecToR.com uses Google to manage these services. For more information, visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads.

  • Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used on the Site for the sole purpose of making it possible to browse the site and allow you to use its features. These are always first-party cookies, as they are conveyed directly by us on the Site. Some technical cookies are essential to offer you an optimal browsing experience or to allow you to authenticate on the site, for example, to make a purchase on the Site or enter in your reserved area (so-called browsing cookies). Browsing cookies are normally session cookies and therefore, once the browser is closed, they are automatically deactivated. Other technical cookies are used to allow you to store some of your preferences (for example, the language or country of origin) without having to reset them during subsequent visits (cd functionality cookies). For this reason, functionality cookies are often persistent cookies, as they remain stored on your computer even after the browser is closed until the expiration date provided for them or until you have decided to delete them. As required by current legislation on privacy, for the installation of these cookies is not required your prior consent. Of course, you are free to block the installation of technical cookies, by changing the settings of your browser (read paragraph E, No. 1 to know how to do). Consider, however, that by blocking the installation of technical cookies, or subsequently eliminating them, the ability to access the site, to use all or part of it.
