Welcome to the Start Shopping Privacy Policy.
When you visit or use our website you expressly consent to the collection, use, storage, processing, and disclosure of your information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

How we Collect and use Information
·
We collect words used in searches, ip address, location information based on ip address, browser user agent strings, a hashed version of your unique indentification number that our web server stores in a cookie in your web browser and we store your bookmarks and shops removed in our database.
·
The information we collect is not used to build profiles on people. The data we collect is anonymised so it cannot be traced back to an individual person or organisation.
·
The words we collect in searches is used to improve the search by fine tuning the full text search engine to provide better results for searches.
·
The ip address information we collect is stored for 24 hours and is used by us to help identify the source of any attacks that might occur against our website and our website infrastructure.
·
The location information we collect is the country and state where your ip address is located according to information from geographic ip address databases. This location information is used by us and our advertising customers for analytics tools so we and our advertising customers can see where in the world website and advertising traffic is coming from.
·
We collect information from browser user agent strings so we can differentiate between desktop browsers and mobile browsers and so we can see which browsers people are using to browse our website with so we can make any necessary adjustments to the code in our website so our website displays correctly.
·
We collect a hashed version of your unique identification number so we can provide a link between your web browser and the bookmarks and shops removed that are stored in our database. Without this hashed verion of the unique identification number the bookmarks and shops removed system would not be possible. The reason we store a hashed version of the unique identification number and not the actual unique identification number is so there is no way to identify who the bookmarks and shops removed belong to.
·
We store the settings located in the settings and theme page in cookies located in your web browser. This is so that your settings are saved so when you come back to our website at a later date the settings you set are still there so you do not have to set them again. If you clear your cookies your settings and themes will be set back to their default settings when you next visit our website.
Sharing of Information
·
We do not share search information that we collect with any other parties.
·
Information collected by the advertising system is shared with our advertising customers. We are not responsible for what our advertising customers do with this information.
