Cookies and Web Beacons
Like most websites, this website utilizes cookies to enhance the visitor experience.

Information We Collect About You
Comments – If you leave a comment on one of our posts, we collect your name, email address and, potentially, your website as well as the comment itself. Your name and a link to your website (if applicable) as well as your comment are posted for other visitors to read. Your email address is stored in our system but not posted or shared in any way.
Opt-In to newsletter – We have an opt-in feature that you may select to be notified of future posts. The email address you provide is stored in our system and is shared with our third-party email service in order to deliver the newsletter to you. Otherwise, we will never share or sell your email address to anyone. If you later decide to opt-out of the newsletter, your email address remains in our database, but we will not send future mailings nor will we share or sell your email address to anyone.
Contact Form – If you contact us via our contact page, we collect your name, email address and comment. We will never publish or share that information without permission.
We utilize Google Analytics to provide traffic analysis of our website. For more information about how they use and secure your data, please visit “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” (located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/).
We utilize Google Adsense to place advertisements on our webpage. We have found that they provide the most useful general advertising for our readers, but you should be aware of the following:
- Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visit to our sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
- You may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings (see the bottom of that page for links for opt-out).
- We are compensated by Google for the advertising on our website but make no endorsement of the products advertised.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Specific product mentions will always be noted as an “affiliate link”. We often have an amazon advertisement running on our website as well which also works as an affiliate link. Note that your prices are not impacted by utilizing the affiliate links, but we are paid a commission for any purchases you make.
We do not currently work with advertisers other than those listed above. In the event we do work with such advertisers in the future, we will disclose that relationship in this policy.
Other Product Links
From time to time, we will mention other products in our posts. When we do so, we will clearly disclose any relationship with the vendor and any compensation we might receive. Our comments about our experiences will never be affected by those relationships, but we believe you should know of any connection we have.
Other Disclosure of Information
- In the event that I sell any or all of my business to the buyer
- Where I am legally required by law to disclose your personal information
- To help with fraud protection and reduce the risk of fraud
