Privacy & Cookie Policy

This page explains the POMEDOR website's Privacy Policy. By continuing your visit, you agree to the policy described below.

What personal information do we collect about you?

We gather two types of information from you:

  • Information you actively give us, which includes content you post or messages you send us. We use this information to deal with your requests and never share it with anyone outside of the POMEDOR team.
  • Information your web browser gives us, such as your computer's IP address, your city and your screen size. We also monitor your use of the website by seeing which pages you visit and how long you spend on them. We use Google Analytics (just like nearly everybody else), which is a service provided by Google, so that we can measure how effective our website is at giving you the information you're after.

How we use cookies

"Cookies" are small files which your web browser transfers to your computer when you visit a site. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as providing information to the owners of the site.

Like many websites, we use cookies to help us monitor your use of the website. These cookies are used by Google Analytics so that we know when you've visited one page and then another. We also use cookies if you login to our website with your username (or email) and password.

What cookies do we use?

Each cookie has a unique name which you can use to identify where it came from.

  • Some features of our site use Javascript. We set a has_js cookie if you have javascript enabled, so we can give you the best possible experience.
  • Google Analytics uses cookies with the following names to monitor visitors to our website, so that we can improve the experience for all users: _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmz. Read more about the Google Analytics privacy policy here.
  • If you login to our site we will also store a cookie so that we can identify you as a logged-in user.

Please note that there is a difference between cache and cookies. Even with cookies disabled, websites use cache to store files such as javascript, css or images to make loading time faster. Read more about cache here.

How we protect your privacy

We do not engage in any marketing or advertising practices and we never share personally identifiable information with those outside of the POMEDOR team.

We share anonymous website usage information with Google Analytics as listed above.

Disclosure of your information

We may disclose information in special cases when we have reasons to believe that disclosing said information is:

  • Reasonably necessary to comply with the law.
  • Necessary to protect our rights and those of our users.

The information contained on your profile page on the website is publicly accessible. By filling in those fields, you give us your consent to display it. The POMEDOR team does not sell nor use this information for any purposes other than those stated above.

We will never ask you for your banking information

If you are asked by someone on the site or from the POMEDOR team for your banking information or for payments, do not provide it and please contact us immediately. We do not sell products and do not require payments of any sort.

There are always risks when using the Internet

Posted information

Remember that while we do the best we can to protect your privacy, we cannot garantee you the information you post on this site is 100% safe. All information that is posted publicly can be read and harvested by spammers. We protect your displayed email addresses so that computers cannot read them and sell them to advertisers - but we cannot prevent humans from doing so.


While we are using some techniques to secure your password on our database, it is your responsibility as a user to make sure that it is strong enough and remains secret. Strong passwords usually contain at least one lowercase character, one uppercase character, and a number. Special characters can also be used to increase the security. Using a dictionary word -in any language-, as well as a word followed by a number, is not recommended as hackers can use dictonary attacks to access your account.

How you can manage your privacy

Do not give information you do not wish to share. Once something is posted on the Internet, it is nearly impossible to go back and erase every trace of it. Be careful with what you share about yourself. Websites that require sensitive information, such as banking websites, use special protection to prevent hackers from accessing it. These websites are accessed through https and have a special symbol (usually a lock) in the address bar.

One quick and easy way you can tell your browser not to remember cookies/cache/history for a session is to use the private browsing option. It usually comes in the form of "New private/incognito tab" or "New private/incognito window".

Although using cookies helps us to improve our site, you do not need to accept our cookies in order to visit the POMEDOR website. The majority of web browsers allow some control of cookies. Find out how to change cookie settings in your browser.

Below is a list of the most commonly used browsers with links on how to disable cookies for those specific browsers:

Microsoft also has an interesting page providing tips on how to stay safe on the Internet.

This privacy policy is based on information that can be found on the Versantus website. Some of it was changed and content was added in order to better match the POMEDOR website's policy.
