Information We May Collect

At The Mattress Authority, we collect both personally-identifiable information and non-personal identifiable information from our readers. Below, we explain exactly what each type of information entails, and how we collect it.

Personally-Identifiable Information

Personally-identifiable information is the type of information that helps us identify you as an individual. Personally-identifiable information includes: full name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number, workplace, and gender.

Acquiring Personally-Identifiable Information

We do not, usually, collect personally-identifiable information. The reader’s permission will be asked beforehand, in case this ever happens. Personally-identifiable information only needs to be collected when a user comments or posts on our forums, when they create an account on The Mattress Authority, or when they sign up to receive our newsletter.

Using our comments section does not require your personal information, since the section is public. Whenever you leave a comment, you should not provide your physical address, full name, e-mail address, phone number, or current location.

Non-Personal Information

With non-personal information, we cannot identify you as a user. This type of information is also known as “log files.” Log files are created every time you visit The Mattress Authority. These files include: IP address, date and time of access, browser type, and the last page you visited on our website.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

We will never share information related to any of our users with a third party. The only exceptions are situations in which we are required by law to do so, or situations in which we notice a user performing suspicious activities that may or may not be deemed illegal as well.

Data Protection

There are places on our website where you can input your personal or business information. This information includes name, address (both physical and e-mail), and so on. Any decision to provide such information is entirely voluntary. We strive to make our services available without the need for personal data from our users. Moreover, we forbid third parties to send information to the physical address, e-mail address, phone number, or fax number of any of our users that they may find on our pages, as long as the user has not requested it specifically.

The Mattress Authority uses cookies in order to track the website’s performance, make sure we provide optimized content, and that our readers are satisfied with the content we provide. However, cookies do not collect personally-identifiable information, so they are not harmful to the user.

Users who prefer not to visit websites that use cookies can disable them for this website in the privacy settings of their preferred browser. However, keep in mind that when cookies are disabled, the website may not work as well. If you choose to re-enable them, go back to the privacy settings.

You might also find ads on this website. These ads come from our advertising partners, so whether they use cookies or not is not our choice. When an advertiser uses cookies, they do so to identify your computer and collect information that will help them provide you with targeted ads in the future. These cookies are not covered by the present privacy policy, which only covers the cookies used by this website directly.
