During the course of any visit to Soviet-Empire.com, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Cookies are frequently used by websites to store information on your computer like previous session and login data, so that it can be accessed on subsequent visits. Soviet-Empire.com automatically checks for a cookies left on your last visit and can use this cookie data to facilitate use of the discussion board, such as keeping your account logged in.

Use of Cookies & IP Addresses by Third-Party Services

Cookies may be set and IP addresses logged by some advertising services and other third-party services that we use. If you choose to block cookies from these services it should not affect the functionality of the Soviet-Empire.com discussion forum. The third-party services we use are listed below, with an explanation of what we use them for:

  • Quantcast - for publicly displaying statistics about how many visitors come to our site and which parts of the world the most visitors come from. You can see this information on our Quantcast.com profile.
  • Google Analytics - for gathering statistics on our website's traffic flows and information such as which web browsers they use and what screen size they have. This helps us develop and improve the website. The information is aggregated so it cannot be linked to any individual user.
  • Google AdSense - to display advertisements on our site. These advertisements help pay to run this site. Allowing AdSense cookies might mean you get shown more relevant advertisements.
  • Infolinks - to display in-text advertising to visitors that are not logged-in to a forum account. On Infolinks' website you can read their "Learn more about Infolinks" page.
  • VigLink - for creating affiliate links for us. What this means is that if for example, a user links to a product on a commercial site like Amazon.com, we will earn a small commission if a user clicks the link and then buys that product. VigLink's service does not change the user experience on our site, but it does help us pay to run the site.
