5. Flag Counter

The Flag Counter is a service of Boardhost.com, Inc. On this website we use the “flag counter” to show the national and regional flags of every user visiting our web site.

Flag counter service is a simple image. When an image loads from our server, the visitor's web browser automatically provides Bradhost Inc. with certain information including the visitor's IP address, the URL of the referring page (where the image was placed), and the user-agent string of the visitor (which ordinarily contains the type and version of a visitor's web browser and operating system). However, the information we log is limited.

When a Flag Counter image is loaded, our service queries a third-party company's database which is locally hosted on our servers (no information is transmitted to the third-party company). This allows us to determine the country and/or region most likely associated with a particular visitor's IP address, at which time that country and/or region is added as a visit to the counter. 

To prevent a returning visitor from repeatedly adding to a counter's statistics, a combination of the visitor's IP address and the particular counter's username are converted to an encrypted hash (which we cannot reverse), and then the hash itself is placed into a filter (for up to seven days after which it is erased). This method allows our counters to operate without the use of cookies. 

Provider is Bradhost Inc., 308 E. Burlington St. #158, Iowa City, IA 52240. For detailed information about Bradhost’s privacy policy: https://flagcounter.com/privacy.html
