We may also collect information that you decide to provide to us (for example, you might type information into a web form or send us an email).

What We Do With Collected Information

Information is stored on servers or other storage devices owned by DreamHost, Inc., and may also be stored on computers or other storage devices owned by MathDetail. (See DreamHost's Privacy Policy.)

Information you decide to send us via email is stored on servers or other storage devices owned by DreamHost, Inc., and may also be stored on computers or other storage devices owned by MathDetail.

Any stored information may be used to help us improve our product, to help us understand the demographics and needs of our users, and to respond to comments or requests for support.

Personal Information

MathDetail will never attempt to determine your identity based on the information your web browser provides. However, we may attempt to contact you if you contact us first (for example, we may want to respond to your feedback or your request for support).

Information Collected by Third Parties

Each of these organizations may receive the same information described in the bullet points above under the section heading "Information We Collect".

We may ask your web browser to make a request to the server owned by CloudFlare in order to maximize the efficiency of MathJax, which we use to generate beautiful mathematical displays.

We may ask your web browser to make a request to the server owned by Ezoic in order to help us study how layout changes affect visitors' experience on our site (including, among other things, how users interact with advertisements).

We may ask your web browser to make a request to the server owned by Google in order to display advertisements, and in order to help us understand the demographics and needs of our visitors, and in order to help us understand how our visitors use MathDetail.

We may ask your web browser to make a request to the server owned by StackPath in order to maximize the efficiency of Bootstrap, which we use to generate the layout of MathDetail in a way that works well both on desktop computers and on mobile devices.

Information you enter into forms on a web page (for example, as part of the process of using one of MathDetail's calculation tools) may be visible to Ezoic, but is not visible to any of the other three organizations.

Use Of Cookies

A "cookie" is a small piece of information which a web site asks your web browser to store. Then, when you visit a web site again later, the web site may ask for the contents of the stored cookie, which the web browser provides.

Whenever you view a web page on MathDetail, your web browser will be asked to set cookies which can be sent back to web sites at the following domains:

We use mathdetail.com cookies to assign your browser an ID. If you visit more than one page on mathdetail.com, or visit the same page more than once, then this allows us to tell that it was the same person visiting both pages, as opposed to two different people visiting. This cookie doesn't allow us to know anything additional about you other than your activity on mathdetail.com. We use this information to help us understand how our visitors use the site, which allows us to improve our product.

MathDetail does not control StackPath LLC, but it is our understanding that StackPath LLC uses the bootstrapcdn.com cookies for approximately the same purpose that we use the mathdetail.com cookies.

MathDetail does not control Google, but it is our understanding that Google uses its cookies primarily to display advertisements to you (at our request, if you're on this site) that Google believes are more likely to represent products you may be interested in.

Other Information Sharing

MathDetail may share information collected by Google Inc. with Ezoic Inc., for the purpose of helping us study how layout changes affect visitors' experience on our site (including, among other things, how users interact with advertisements).

In the course of business, MathDetail may occasionally share other aggregate information based on information provided by many web browsers (for example, by stating the proportion of its visitors which come from certain countries). We may also occasionally share anonymous individual information (for example, "We have a visitor from Georgia who uses our site every day").
