We use your IP address to gather broad demographic information for use in our statistics system, this allows us to tally the number of visitors per minute/hour/day/week/month/year etc.
We use both an external Google solution and our own system to display ads on the site. These ads may contain cookies designed to track pageview, click count and IP information purely for statistical monitoring purposes.
Our online surveys may sometimes ask visitors for contact information (like email address). They also use IP and Cookie status information to detect whether a reader has voted more than once (prevent abuse).
Presently ISPreview has three external relationships with other sites, including Google.com for advertising (see 'Advertisers' above), Thinkbroadband.com for one of our broadband 'Speedtest' services and Samknows.com for our 'Broadband Coverage Checker'. The Speedtest includes a requirement for users to enter their postcode and phone number - these details are NOT shared with or sold on to third parties outside of ISPreview/Thinkbroadband and instead collected to help build a geographic map of broadband performance/speed around the UK. Similarly the Broadband Coverage Checker requests either a postcode or phone number, however neither are retained by the remote server past your initial service.
