ForkF knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously.
The Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by us. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites.
In addition, we will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site.
By using the Service, you expressly relieve ForkF from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website.
Information Collected by Us
We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of the Service. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience.
We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with this objective.
We collect the following types of information from users of the Service:
1. Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you enter on the Service or provide to us in any other way.
For instance, we may collect information you provide to us if you register on the Service, contact us via email, or subscribe to our electronic newsletter.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.
- There’s no comment system, user registration on website is closed, and there’s no newsletter subscription form, so you can’t provide us your email address.
- We don’t sell or deliver anything, so you can’t provide us your credit card details and/or your physical address.
2. Automatic Information
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Service.
ForkF, and our hosting providers, automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on server logs, including:
- your IP address,
- cookie information,
- the page you requested,
- device and software characteristics (such as type and operating system),
- activity on the Service,
- ad data,
- referral URLs,
- device identifiers,
- other unique identifiers such as advertising identifiers (e.g., “ad-ID” or “IDFA”).
This traffic data is used to help diagnose problems with servers, analyze trends and administer the Service.
We may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit or use the Service anonymously. While we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
3. E-mail Communications
We are very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the “Sharing Your Information” section below.
We may send out e-mails with related news, or products, and respond to your feedback, questions or requests.
Currently we don’t collect your email address on ForkF.com, but we might consider it in the future.
4. Cookies and Similar Technologies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in the Service are visited and by how many people.
Our cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or your screen name or e-mail address.
The “help” portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies.
In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies such as web beacons or pixel tags, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, to collect certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Content, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Content was viewed.
More information about how you can opt-out is in “Do Not Track Disclosures” below.

5. Advertising And Google AdSense
We use third-party advertising companies, such as Google Adsense, to serve ads when you visit or use the Service.
These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits and use of the Service in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
In addition, we allow third parties to monitor the Service for the purpose of reporting traffic, statistics, advertisements, “click-throughs” and/or other activities.
You can also control the information Google uses to show you ads at https://adssettings.google.com/
6. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics (“Google Analytics”), a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses “cookies.” The information generated by the cookies about your use of the Service (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Service, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
By using the Service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
7. Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos from YouTube, images from Instagram, articles from other websites, etc.).
Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Do Not Track Disclosures
We may also use tracking technologies to collect information about your visits over time and across third-party websites or other online services.
If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies and to opt-out of most third-party tracking, you may go to:
Sharing Your Information
We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone and we will share your personal information only as described below.
Our personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of our business.
2. Business Transfers
If the Service was acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred.
3. Protection of ForkF
We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to:
- comply with a law;
- enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other policies;
- protect the rights, property, or safety of ForkF, our employees, our users, or others.
This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.
We allow for the RSS syndication of public Content from the Service.
Security of Your Information
1. Security Measures
We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures designed to help prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data security, and to use correctly the information we collect online.
These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store.
We’ve also added a SSL certificate on ForkF.com to make our website more secure.
2. No Security Guarantees
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile.
All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What Rights You Have Over Your Data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Please send an email to contact (at) forkf (dot) com if you need any request regarding the data we’re collecting about you.
