Resident Entertainment respects the privacy of all people who visit our website however when visitors come to Resident Entertainment we do collect some information which we use within Resident Entertainment. Some of the information we collect is as follows. We do also have some third party services which provide functions for our website which we will also detail below. We try our best to maintain the privacy of all our visitors and readers.
Information collected by Resident Entertainment
Our website is built using WordPress and as so, the comments that are left on any of our posts or articles do generate some information on the back end of our site. When an individual leaves a comment on Resident Entertainment we are able to see that individual’s IP address, email address and name provided to us along with the time and date for when the comment was left. At Resident Entertainment these details are recorded by us when a comment is left, but we do not use them for any marketing initiatives or share them in any way.
Comments are currently being handled by Disqus, please see below for information regarding your privacy with Disqus.
Subscribers and Newsletter members
These email addresses are on record with Resident Entertainment and will not be shared with or sold to any outside or third party organisation. Users are able to sign up and opt out at any time. We currently comply with the Spam Act 2003 (Australia). We have also implemented a double opt-in newsletter service, once a subscriber joins on our site they will need to confirm this by clicking on a link. Only then will they start to receive emails from us. Resident Entertainment is not interested in spamming people and we really try hard to respect everyone’s privacy.
Cookies and trackers on Resident Entertainment
Some people who reach out to us via our contact us form are asked to provide their name and email address. This is intended by us to be a private method of communication through email and the details provided will not be shared or sold to any third party.
Third Party Services
Google Analytics and Google Adsense
We use Google Analytics for collecting stats on our visitor numbers which we use to know if anyone is actually reading our site. On Resident Entertainment we also have display advertising which is generated by Google Adsense. Some of this is tracked by Google and while it is displayed on our site we do not choose what is displayed. These adverts are generated for visitors by Google based on the space we provide on the site for them to appear.
We may at times share our Google Analytics data with outside organisations who wish to advertise with us, but only on general terms. This would be such things as number of unique viewers to the site, number of page views, popular age groups (e.g. 13-25) and country of origin. These general stats may be shown to potential advertisers to prove our visitor numbers when Resident Entertainment needs to.
