Here at MalaysiaExplorer.net, the privacy of our visitors is of utmost importance to us. We do not share, sell or trade your information with anyone. We understand your personal details should be treated with respect and care so we implement security and company policies to maintain privacy as a fundamental aim. Below you’ll find some details on the kinds of information that is received and collected when you visit our site, how we safeguard that information and what you can do to opt out if so desired.
None of the information collected by MalaysiaExplorer.net is personally identifiable, which means, for example, that although our advertising partner may serve ads specific to your interests, your personal details will never be tracked. This includes your name, email address, physical address and telephone number.
Most all websites collect and use the data contained in so called ‘log files’ in order to monitor bandwidth usage and visitor numbers. The information contained within our log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your operating system (such as Windows or Macintosh), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you subsequently visited on our site. This information is non-personally identifiable in that we see the pieces of data but in isolation and they are not tied to your name, email address, physical address or telephone number.
Cookies and Web Beacons
MalaysiaExplorer.net works with third party advertisers to help fund and support our operations. We only work with reputable advertisers with strict privacy policies of their own. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons through our site, to send back information including your IP address, your operating system, the browser you used to visit our site, and possibly, whether you have Adobe Flash Player installed. The most common application of this is to deliver geotargeted advertising that may interest you. For example, someone based in Seattle may be shown Seattle real estate ads, or someone who often visits motoring sites may be delivered car related ads.

DART cookies may be used on our site to serve ads through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer as you browse the web and view a site using DoubleClick advertising (or in some cases Google AdSense advertisements). Again, this particular cookie allows our advertising partner to deliver ads specific to you and your interests. The ads subsequently shown may be targeted based on your previous browsing history, for example, you may see a car related ad on a separate site if you frequent other motoring websites. Please note that DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT under any circumstances track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
