Our website is packed with terrific articles, photos and video - and we don't want you to miss out on anything you'd really enjoy.
To make sure that doesn't happen, we use technology that notices which kinds of story you and other visitors like to make sure we produce and give extra prominence to similar stories.
Recommended contentWhen you read an article, you'll see a list of top stories on the right. We try to make sure this list of stories is as relevant to you as possible.
And of course, if you don't want us to recommend stories like this, you can easily turn this off. Turn off
We want your views and insight on the issues that matter to you and you can leave comments under most articles, though sometimes - such as stories about court cases and other sensitive content - we don't allow comments.
We use a system called Pluck to allow commenting. To leave a comment, you need to register via Facebook. We want our readers to feel safe and comfortable when using the Get Hampshire site and we think asking people to sign in with Facebook will help that.
If you're using a shared computer to comment under an article, remember to log out of Facebook as well as logging out of the Get Hampshire site when you've finished.
Like all major websites, we use web analytics software from companies like Omniture and Google to see where on our site people go and how they got here.
We don't use this information to recommend content to you as an individual. But it helps us understand what types of people come to the site (for example which country they are from), how they get here, where they go once they've arrived and how long they stay.
We use this information to help us decide when to update the site and what sort of content is popular - so we can provide more of it. Again, it uses a cookie to keep track of everyone's use.
We do not charge users for the high quality journalism we publish. Instead, our website relies on advertising to stay in business.
We carefully select advertising partners that we think will interest you - but not all adverts are relevant to everyone, of course, so we try to work out which ads you'll want to see.
None of your personal information is ever shared with advertisers.
