These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

On the ducksite we use Alexa Siteinfo to analyse how visitors come on the website, which keywords they use on search engines to get a global ranking.
We use ofcourse Google Analytics for all statistics, how many people are online, which pages they visit, how long they stay on each page, whether they interact or not. It uses demography, gender, locations (using your IP-adres) and all info you set public to Google. We are using this to check which operating system visitors are using most often and where they are coming from and ofcoruse which pages, duration and interaction they do between those pages, to adjust the website.
We also have 2 visible visitor-trackers: Freecounterstat which shows you a number of total visitors the ducksite have visited; whos.amung.us/ which shows you a dotted map with online visitors.

You can choose to disallow these 4 tracking cookies on your first visit on the ducksite.

Cookies and Web Beacons and Sessions

Like any other website, ducksite uses 'cookies'. These cookies are used to store information including visitors' preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser type and/or other information.

We ask you to create an account (login) with only a username and a password to interact on the pages of duckfaucet. You choose whether or not to provide us your bitcoinadress, EC-adress, emailadress.
A cookie called ducksite will be downloaded on your device with 4 variables: username, datetime you were last on the website, your balance and number of competition points. No other info will be stored in that cookie.
This cookie will be used to logging in a next time on ducksite without putting in the credentials username or password. This is a strictly-necessary cookie you cannot opt-out when interacting on the ducksite. Allthough you can always delete this cookie (when leaving the website): in the menu under your username there is a logout-function that destroys sessions and this ducksite cookie.
Be aware this ducksite cookie is necessary when interacting with paid notifications.

Emailadress is necessary to provide when you claim a prize on the free competition on duckfaucet. We want to send you an email to inform you when prize is addedto your account.
EC-adress and bitcoinadress you want to provide to us when playing on the faucets (hourly faucet - duckfaucet) to get a payout on those micropayeers whom use these adresses to collect cryptocoins: Expresscrypto and Faucetpay.

Besides that cookie, we use sessions to store visitors preferences and interactions. Leaving the ducksite will destroy all sessions. You can always delete active sessions: in the menu under your username there is a logout-function that destroys sessions and the ducksite cookie.

Tracking & Marketing cookies on duckfaucet

There is a part on the ducksite, duckfaucet, located on the subdomain ducksite.be/duckfaucet/ where a visitor needs to allow tracking and marketing cookies to get access to it. The purpose of this subdomain is to play a game, partly created by us and partly offered by Third Party Sites with iframes technology. We can't block those iframes properly and access to this subdomain is useless if the visitor doesn't want to allow cookies from those Third Party Sites because he would be staring at a blank page if everything is blocked.
That's the main and first reason a visitor needs to allow those extra cookies.

A second and logical reason: a visitor wants to play the game to earn credits, our currency name is called duckies, which he can convert into real cryptocoins or euro and withraw to his wallets. We spend those credits on visitors in a mutual relationship: by displaying advertisements, we also earn credits on those websites of advertisers and Third Party Sites that we try to get paid out in cryptocoins or euros or dollars to our own accounts.
In short version: we want to make money showing advertisements and we only want to give money away for free to visitors who allow marketing cookies.

A visitor doesn't need to allow these tracking and marketing cookies when creating an account (login). He can always turn this option on and off at any time on his account or when logging in: every time a visitor logs in with his credentials (username and password) he needs to check to allow Tracking and Marketing cookies. Not checking = standard = disallowing = the visitor won't receive these cookies.
Allowing these cookies will grant access to the subdomain ducksite.be/duckfaucet/. Disallowing these cookies will block access to this subdomain by script but all other parts of ducksite are accessible.
