Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on noirkittymews.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Google Analytics & Demographics
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” and its “Demographics & Interests Reports” to collect information about the use of noirkittymews.com. Information collected includes how often users visit this site, what pages they visit and when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to noirkitymews.com. Demographics looks at the age, gender and interest categories of the site’s users and visitors to better understand its audience. We use the information we get from Google Analytics and Demographics only to gain insights and to improve the functionality of noirkittymews.com. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.
