A visit to Impose Magazine may generate cookies in the following ways:
Anonymous analytics cookies
Third party advertising cookies
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organization generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. We anonymize the ip address such that we cannot use them even in our analytics services to ever use them to track an individual.
We primarily use Google Analytics and Quantcast for this purpose, looking at general statistics, and have links below with instructions of how to opt out of tracking on both.
A lot of the advertisements you see on the Impose Magazine are provided by other organizations. Some of these organizations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These organizations may use their cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to the Impose Magazine.
On some ads or creatives, other organizations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customize the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organization access the data in cookies we use on our website.
For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on the Impose Magazine, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
No, we have server logs that record ip address specifically for server operations and we store anonymized ip data with browser information for every hit specifically for statistics and operations, but never store anything personably identifiable. Our server logs are removed after 15 days. No other personal information is stored.
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the Help option in your browser for more details.

If we do have a data breach, post a link to the incident report on our social media channels within 72 hours (but like we said, we really don’t store anything that’s personally important or related to anyone. You could see how many times our article on Run the Jewels was viewed for a month.) We’re just required to put what we’ll do in those situations. Normal incident reports have time and details, what the exposure was, how it was blocked and what steps we’re doing to mitigate any future situations. And if we were a bank instead of media player, we’d do a really good job at those things.
