devahead BLOG aims to be a resource about software development focusing mainly on Android and Adobe Flex, but also on any other technology interesting for the present and the future of software from a developer’s point of view. The posts will be supported as much as possible by examples and source code to strengthen the knowledge about the discussed topic.
This blog is maintained by me, Andrea Bresolin. I work as an Adobe Flex and Java developer on enterprise applications. I’ve been reading information on many different blogs for a lot of years and I found many of them really useful to solve problems and to learn something new. I think that now it’s time to contribute also on my own to share my knowledge and experience, hoping that it will be useful to other people as well. For more information about me, you can visit my profile on LinkedIn.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on www.devahead.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed.

DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (for example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
