PaganPath Cookies Policy

The Official Cookies Policy 

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a tiny piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you will be able to access Member Only areas such as the Academy, and you can post messages in the forum, and view exclusive downloads.  We do not use cookies to track your interests or to collect demographic information!  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Some of our partners may use cookies on our site (for example, our chat software). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

We partner with social media services only to provide easy login and registration using your Facebook or other social media credentials. When you use the social media login options, only the minimum information necessary to provide this service is exchanged (name, username, email address).  These parties do not have access to any other information from PaganPath, or any personally identifiable information, and we do not require further information from your social server (and we do not post to your Facebook wall!).

Your privacy is extremely important to us, and you can review our Privacy Policy Here

And now the explanation in non-lawyer language . . .

~Cookies?  Are they Yummy?

PaganPath uses several tools to help understand how you use the site to make it better for you.  These tools, such as Google Analytics and our chat service, use 'cookies', which are very small text files placed on your computer.  These cookies collect standard internet log information such as your browser and IP address.  This is required so we know which menu options and areas of the site you can access, and so you don't have to log in every time you go to another area of the site.  PaganPath does make yummy cookies!

For example, when you log in, PaganPath uses cookies to identify that you are a Member, and allows you access to the Academy, private forums, your private message system and your profile.  It also makes it possible to show your previous shop orders, test and exam scores, points accumulated for prizes, etc.

On our administrator end, we only see a summary of all users and visitors, with pie charts of which browsers are used most often, the countries visitors are coming from, and screen resolutions.  This helps us find out if we need to make the site more accessible for mobile devices, or if we need to add language translations, worldwide shipping options, etc.

When you order from the shop or become a dues-paying Premium Member, you will enter information such as your full name and address.  Your financial information is stored securely at PayPal, not at PaganPath.

Cookies are not dangerous, they are simply small pieces of text.  They are not computer programs, and they can't be executed as code.  Also, they cannot be used to disseminate viruses.  Microsoft Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox browsers allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives.

Cookies can be stored on your computer, but they cannot access the hard drive - so a cookie can't read other information saved on the hard drive, or get a user's e-mail address etc.

~How to Toss Your Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies through your browser settings.  Of course, this will disable many of your functions on the site, but if you wish to view the site as a visitor (non Member) without the features available to you through your account (Academy, Forum posting, etc.) you can do so without cookies anonymously.  This is also useful for other sites that do not have yummy cookies.

Check your browser for specific instructions, but generally, most browsers operate in a similar way:

Firefox: Tools > Options > Privacy > Remove Individual Cookies
Select the cookie you want to remove or click the button "Remove All Cookies" to toss them all!

Internet Explorer:  Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Browsing History
Select from "Delete" or "Settings" to customize or toss your cookies.

Google Chrome:  chrome://settings/
Privacy > Content Settings > Cookies
Select from the available options.

You may also be able to access cookies information for individual sites by clicking on the "info" or "secure" icon in the URL field of your browser.
