Who we are
What personal data we collect and why.
When you visit my site I automatically collect personal info such as,
- Your IP address (aka Internet Protocol addresses)
- Type of browser you use.
- Your ISP (aka Internet Service Provider)
- The time, date and length of your visit.
- The pages you visit on this site.
- The site you came from and go to when you leave the site
When you comment on this site I do ask for your name and email address. That is so I know the name of the person to replay to and if need be email you with a follow up if the answer cannot be covered in the comment area. When your comment publishes, it will show your name but not your email.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We may share your information that we collect with trusted third parties. You do have the right to opt out of the sharing of your personal data. Each third-party service provider’s use of your information is dictated by their own privacy policies. This website currently uses the following third-party service providers:
- Mediavine as noted in the advertising section below.
This third party list may be amended from time to time in this website’s sole discretion.
I may from time to time use anonymous data, that does not identify you alone to provide to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Such anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.
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.
