Third party disclosure and collection of information
This site uses a number of third party tools in order to operate. Google’s Adsense network is installed and utilizes cookies and other information Google has collected to display Adsense advertisements. A cookie called the DoubleClick cookie is utilized throughout the Adsense network, Google’s websites, and Google’s network partners. This cookie may track users across many sites in order to display targeted or interest-based advertising.
Social media widgets are also present on this site. They allow you to share information about this site on social media, but also may gather information about you as you visit this site according to their respective policies.

Google analytics is utilized on this site to determine data such as page views, popular posts, inbound links, and other information to better understand the traffic we receive and enhance the user experience. The vast majority of the websites on the internet use Google analytics with demographic and interests reports enabled that track users across the web and report demographic and interest-based information to the sites using them. However, we respect your privacy and do not believe those measures are important for us to know so we do not subscribe to that more detailed level of reporting. To learn more about Google analytics go to Google Analytics’ privacy page.
How can I block tracking from ads and analytics across the web?
At reviewtechnica.com we think privacy is important. Because tracking from advertising networks, social networks, and internet companies is so ubiquitous, we suggest using tools like DoNotTrackMe and Disconnect in your browsers. If you use track-blocking tools and opt-out of interest based ads wherever you can it will help reduce tracking online.
