Privacy Policy and T&Cs

The fun stuff

TOPIA is committed to providing readers with a website that respects their privacy. This page summarises the privacy policy and practices for worldoftopia.com

Information collected in emails and web forms

Our website does not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, or email address. This information is only obtained if you provide it voluntarily, through contacting us via email or through an online form. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organisation, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.

Information collected automatically

We log http requests to our server. These logs capture computer information and navigation data. Some of the information collected does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your domain name or IP address, may identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your internet service provider. If this concerns you, you may wish to ask them about their policies and practices.

While we make no attempt to link the information captured to the identity of individuals, our logs do identify the following:

  1. The internet domain and IP address from which you access our website;
  2. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  3. The date and time you access our site;
  4. The pages you visit; and
  5. If you linked to our website from another website, the address of that website


A cookie is a small piece of text information that is sent to your browser when you access a website. Your browser will return this cookie information to the domain where the cookie originated. The length of time that the cookie will reside on your machine will depend upon the specific set-up of the particular sites you visit. If you are concerned about the use of cookies, you can refer to the help information in your browser software for information on how to disable cookies. If you wish to delete cookies from your machine, consult your browser’s help files for instructions on how to do so.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to interpret our server logs, via cookies (described above), which you may disable. For more information about Google Analytics security and privacy, please see their website.

The pixel

We are trialling the Facebook pixel on our website so that, when it comes to ads, we can give you more of what you want. For that, we have implemented a JavaScript code that enables Facebook to track your user actions to show you the good content you are interested in. After that, Facebook deletes your data again. The collected data is anonymous as well as inaccessible and can only be used for ad placement purposes. If you are a Facebook user and you are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account. You can opt out and delete the cookies.

Our website contains links to other sites and embedded content (videos, images, articles, etc.). We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other websites and encourage you to examine each site’s privacy policy and disclaimers and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability, and correctness of material and information found. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
