Ads & Affiliate Programs
To maintain this site free of charge, I display advertisements on the website and participate in some affiliate programs. This does not affect the quality of my content. I may occasionally promote or endorse a product, business, or service on this site if I believe it will create value for readers. I may also receive products or services free of charge to review on the blog. I will ALWAYS share when a blog post is sponsored and/or if the product, business, or service I am discussing was given to me at no cost.
I will never share any personally identifiable information with a third party (with the exception of any service I use to manage a giveaway/contest/promotion). Unless I have your consent, you will never be contacted by any other party other than myself regarding this blog. The only exceptions are that I may need to disclose personally identifiable information (i) in response to legal process (ii) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or (iii) in the event the blog is purchased or merged.
Some of your personal information may be collected in the following ways:
by sharing your e-mail address when subscribing to the blog,
by sharing personal information in posted comments on the site,
by participating in a giveaway/contest/promotion where an email address is requested.
I use a web tracker to track website traffic and this tracker will collect some personal information which may include the operating system you are working on, the Internet browser you are using, and the screen resolution of your computer.
The email address you provide to subscribe to this website allows you to receive alerts of new posts. This subscription is entirely opt-in. I will not subscribe anyone to the alerts and you can opt-out any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link that is available at the bottom of every email.
The email address associated with your account when you comment on a post may be used in conjunction with contests and promotions hosted on the website to notify you if you have won.
If you choose to comment on posts through Twitter and/or Facebook Connect, I do not get access to your email address or personal information.
If you participate in a giveaway/contest/promotion I will not provide your email addresses to any third party but may contact you via the email address to distribute prizes.
Non-personally identifiable information (such as stated above) may be shared in aggregate form with advertisers, business, or marketing partners but your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed to them.
The ads appearing on my site are delivered to you by Google Adsense and other advertising partners. Information about your visit to this site, such as number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to you on this site. In the course of serving ads to this site, third party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. For more information about Google Adsense, cookies, and how to “opt-out”, please go to http://www.doubleclick.net/us/corporate/privacy
Any information you disclose voluntarily in the comments becomes public information. I will advise you to use your discretion in sharing information about yourself on the Internet, as I do. All information sharing is optional and done so at your own risk.
I will never censor comments based on political or ideological point of view or comments of a critical nature but I reserve the right to delete comments that are off-topic, “spammy” , abusive, use excessive foul language, or include personal attacks.
I will not remove comments by request. As a site user, you are responsible for your own communications and any consequences.
Every contest and/or giveaway is paid for by me, unless otherwise stated.
I cannot guarantee that my review of a product, business, or service will be “positive”. I promise to provide a fair and valuable assessment and review to my readers even if an item is received at no cost to me. I will always give my honest opinion.
