  5. Advertising on www.astro.com

    www.astro.com is among the largest websites with free horoscopes on the web. We invest a lot of work to be able to offer our users astrology at a high quality level. We are happy about the many thousand people who visit our website every day. In order to offer our webservices, we need an appropriate infra structure, like web servers, etc. The returns we receive from advertising help us to finance our free horoscopes and astrology articles. It is important to us that people with a small budget can also have access to good astrology.

    We are aware that some people may find the advertisements irritating. Unfortunately, we are not able to see which adverts a visitor of www.astro.com comes to see. The ads are placed individually for each visitor of the website by Google syndication, depending on location, language and other factors. Astrodienst has no direct contact with the advertisers and does not select them. If ads appear which are inappropriate, their domain name (URL) can and should be reported to Astrodienst. Such advertisers will be added to a list of blocked domain names and will not appear again.

    Appearance of ads: The ads presented by Astrodienst have a little box upper left corner, and you can close a particular ad so that it does not distract you while reading the page where it appeared. These ads never cover any of the content on the page, and they do not create popup windows. Should other kinds ads appear on your screen while visiting astro.com, they might be created by other software (malware) on your computer. In such a case it is advised to use a search engine with keywords from the ads which appear, to get more information about this malware and how to get rid of it.

  8. Is there an app for iPhone, Android, other smart phones or iPad?

    No, and there is currently none in the pipeline. On smartphones a special web page is displayed, adjusted to the smaller screen. This browser-based strategy for mobile devices allows Astrodienst to serve all devices with a single edition of its software.
