When do I collect information and what information do I collect?
I collect your name, email address and other information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter or comment on my blog.
I also collect information about visitors who comment due to my Akismet anti-spam service.
This information includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
You have the option to have your details stored to avoid having to re-enter them every time you comment.
If you later wish your email address to be deleted, contact me via my contact form and I will remove it within two weeks.
Do I use ‘cookies’ or pixels?
In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, to store information for things like shopping carts, to provide anonymized tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics (read how this works) and to keep track of advertisements such as Mediavine (more on that below).
As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others.
The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. I suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
I also use the following pixels for ad targeting:
- Facebook Pixel (for Facebook ad targeting): Read how the Pixel works
- Pinterest Tag (for Pinterest ad targeting): Read info about the Pinterest tag here
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (most likely to be embedded You Tube clips.).
Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you visited the other website.
Third party disclosure
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties.
Third party links
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third party products or services on my website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
Mediavine Programmatic Advertising
As a Mediavine partner, I am required to display the message below in its entirety. Some information may be repeated from what I have already mentioned above.
The Website uses Mediavine to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website. The cookie may collect information relating to your use of the Website, information about your device such as the device’s IP address and browser type, demographic data and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site.
The Website may collect IP addresses and location information to serve personalized ads and pass it to Mediavine. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. You may also visit http://optout.aboutads.info/#/ and http://optout.networkadvertising.org/# to learn more information about interest-based advertising.
