Privacy Policy

DinoChecker complies to all UK national laws and requirements for user privacy. Below, we outline how we use and protect any information that you share when contacting us via email from this website, and our use of cookies.
Your details
Your name (so we know what to call you) and your email address (so we know how to contact you) are required when you contact us via email, but only if you need a reply.
In these days of serial spammers, we need to protect our inbox from the deceased King of Burkina Faso, fraudsters posing as banks, and potion-peddlers who reckon they can make our appendage strong enough to poke a rhino's eye out, so precautions have been taken.
If you don't need a reply you can make a name up. You can make an address up too, but make sure it roughly resembles a real one or our system just won't let it through. And beware of using silly words (like: kyfvrure@bgkhfcnjkdsr.cojh) because they won't get past our "gobble-de-gook" filters. Emails containing the words "invoice", "hot moms" or "page rank" will be immediately sent to the pits of hell by our email guardian. And anything we consider to be racist, sexist, exessively profane, hateful or in poor taste will be forwarded to the relevant authorities.
How we use your info
We don't need your details for anything other than replying to your queries if you have asked us to do so, or for sending a quick "thanks" if you have suggested an entry, made a page edit or answered an FAQ, and once we've done that your details will be deleted. Rest assured, we do not "harvest" email addresses. We will never sell, distribute or lease any details you send us to a third party for any reason, nor otherwise release your details unless we are required by law to do so, and have put in place physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure any information we do receive.
About cookies
A lot is being made of the use of "cookies" these days, but not the delicious double chocolate chip hazelnut ones that we love so much. A cookie is a small text file that a web browser places on your device, for example, to remember which pages you have visited so future visits load faster. We're obliged by law to tell you that we use cookies for our hit counters and analytics—the things that compile site stats, such as which pages are the most popular on any given day—but there's nothing sinister going on.
A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personally identifiable information about you. But if you are still worried, you can easily modify your browser settings to decline cookies and it won't affect your visit to our site much. Ironically, if you disable cookies your browser will store a cookie to tell it not to store cookies. Go figure.
Third Party Cookies
Third party vendors (namely Google) use their own cookies when serving ads to our site to increase ad relevancy. You can view Google's partner privacy policy here, and opt out of their use of cookies by editing your ads settings here.
Links to other websites
Our website contains links to other websites which may be of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site we have no control over the destination website or its content. They were perfectly safe the last time we checked but we cannot be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites. They are not governed by our privacy policy. They have to write their own.
