1. Who’s Who and What This Privacy Notice Covers
Our website, http://www.kizillab.org is a non-commercial, educational website that informs the public about our academics endeavors.
2. Information We Collect About Visitors to Our Users’ Sites
We collect information about visitors to our website in a few different ways–we collect certain information that the visitors provide to the site and we collect some information automatically.
Information a Visitor Provides to a Site
We’ll start with information that visitors provide directly to the site, which primarily happens when visitors type into a text field, like a comment field or a sign-up form.
Here are the most common ways in which a visitor directly provides information to a site:
- Follower and Subscriber Information: When a visitor signs up to follow or subscribe to a site, we collect the sign-up information requested by the site, which typically includes an email address.
- Site Comments: When a visitor leaves a comment on a site, we collect that comment, and other information that the visitor provides along with the comment, such as the visitor’s name and email address.
- Crowdsignal Survey Responses: When a visitor completes a poll, quiz, or other type of survey prepared by a user, we collect the visitor’s responses to those surveys, and other information that the survey owner requires for a poll/quiz/survey response, like an e-mail address.
- Other Information Entered on the Site: We may also collect other information that a visitor enters on the site–such as a contact form submission, a search query, or site registration.
Information We Automatically Collect from the Site
We also automatically collect some information about visitors to the site. The information we automatically collect depends on which of our services the site uses. We’ve listed examples below:
- Technical Data from a Visitor’s Computer and Etcetera: We collect the information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available about visitors to a site, such as the IP address, browser type, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information.
- Visitor Interactions: We collect information about a visitor’s interactions with a Site, including the “likes” and “ratings” left by visitors to the site using WordPress.com or Jetpack.
- Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of a visitor’s device from the IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, tally for our visitors how many people visit the site from certain geographic regions. If you’d like, you can read more about the Site Stats feature for WordPress.com sites and Jetpack sites.
- Jetpack Site Activity: We collect visitor activities related to the management of the site, such as login attempts/actions and comment submission and management actions. For more information, please see the Jetpack Privacy Center.
3. How We Use Visitor Information
WordPress.com uses information about site visitors in order to provide service to users and their sites. Users may use these services to, for example, create and manage their site, flag and fight comments from spammers, and collect information through polls, quizzes and other surveys. kizillab.org is a non-commercial, non-profit website and does not engage in any commercial activity.
5. Other Tools
Ad networks and analytics providers may set tracking technologies (like cookies) to collect information about visitors’ use of a Site and across other websites and online services, such as a visitor’s IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used by those companies to, among other things, analyze and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content, and deliver advertisements that may be more targeted to visitor interests. For more information about how to manage and delete cookies, visit aboutcookies.org, and for more information on interest-based ads, including information about how visitors may be able to opt out of having their web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit aboutads.info/choices (US based) and youronlinechoices.eu (EU based).

8. Cookie Information
The Cookie Widget
- Hiding the banner – The banner can be set to be dismissed in one of three ways: when a visitor specifically clicks the button, when a visitor scrolls, or after a specific time. The minimum length of time is 3 seconds, and the maximum 1000. Once the banner is hidden, a technical cookie named eucookielaw is set, which prevents it from being displayed to the same user again for 30 days.
For members of the WordAds program, EU visitors must click the “Close and accept” button in order for their ads to be personalized on your site. Such ads return a higher revenue rate to be shared with you. Keep this in mind when deciding how to hide the banner.
- Banner text – The banner will display a default cookie notification message, which can be customized if required.
- Policy URL – By default this creates a link to the WordPress.com cookies policy. Should you wish to link to your own policy, you can do so by adding a page to your site, and inserting the link in the field below “Custom:”. After inserting the link you will be able to select the custom option.
In addition to the widget, you can also visit the link: WordPress.com cookies policy.
