Hi, Welcome to Internet Safety and Privacy where you will find information, guides and resources to help keep you safe, and protect your privacy online. Many people purchase security software to protect their computer systems and while this is an essential part of a responsible protection strategy; software does not even cover half the potential threats that are out there. Software alone cannot block some of the most dangerous online threats. Only by being aware of the threat and understanding how to avoid it can we begin to approach complete protection.

Use of Cookies

The internetsafetyandprivacy.com website uses “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example if you personalise internetsafetyandprivacy.com pages or register with the internetsafetyandprivacy.com website or services a cookie helps internetsafetyandprivacy.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and so on. When you return to the same internetsafetyandprivacy.com web pages the information you previously provided can be retrieved so you can easily use the internetsafetyandprivacy.com features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the internetsafetyandprivacy.com services or web pages you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Internet Safety and Privacy secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Internet Safety and Privacy secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment protected from unauthorised access use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites it is protected through the use of encryption such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
