Privacy Policy

It is Historic Mysteries’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website and/or app.

Privacy Policy for Website and App Users

Like most website operators, Historic Mysteries collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Historic Mysteries’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Historic Mysteries’ visitors use the website and/or app.

Historic Mysteries also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the website. Historic Mysteries only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that the commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Historic Mysteries choose to interact with the website and/or app in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who sign up for our website to provide a username and email address. We collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with our site. Historic Mysteries does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. We will only disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena or court order, or when Historic Mysteries believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Historic Mysteries, its authors or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Historic Mysteries and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our site. We primarily use the website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Historic Mysteries takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that is stored on a visitor’s device, and that the user’s browser provides to the website and/or app each time the user returns. Historic Mysteries uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of our website and/or app, and their preferences. Historic Mysteries users who do not wish to have cookies placed on their device should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using this website, with the drawback that certain features may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Google and Other Ads

Ads appearing on our website and/or app may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your device each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your device. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Historic Mysteries and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


Historic Mysteries may receive compensation from the companies whose products we review or advertise.
