A visit to a page on the Punkpost website may generate the following types of cookies:
When you register for an account with Punkpost, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.
Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with and recognizes you on returning visits. It also allows us to associate any requests, posts, and comments you post with your username.
While you are signed into our site, we combine information from these cookies with analytics cookies, which can be used to identify which pages you have seen on Punkpost. For account security purposes and fraud prevention, if you register for a Punkpost account, information such as your device fingerprint, browser fingerprint, and IP address will be collected.
Without these cookies, you may experience difficulties using our site.
Every time someone visits our website, an “anonymous analytics cookie” is generated.
These cookies tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, how often they visit the site, how our website is being used, and helps us customize our website for you and enhance your experience.
Without signing into Punkpost, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals, only devices. Logging in is what allows us to associate the data gathered by the “anonymous analytics cookie” to the specific user data tied to your Punkpost account, such as your username and email address.
