Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy outlines the type of personal information that may be collected as a result of your use of this site and how that information may be used.

I may collect and use information about you that I obtain from log files, information submitted by you via forms, and other information made available through third-party tools such as Google Analytics, including Demographics and Interest Reporting. This may include information such as when you accessed the site, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser used, Internet Service Provider (ISP), location, referring/exit pages, pages visited, demographic, age, interests, and other information. This information may be used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site, and to perform other user analysis.

I reserve the right to use Google Analytics to collect data about traffic to the site including data about traffic via the DoubleClick cookie in addition to data collected through the standard Google Analytics implementation. I reserve the right to use Google Display Advertising and Google Analytics features implemented based on Displayed Advertising (e.g., Remarketing). You can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using Google’s Ads Preferences Manager. I may use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show these ads on sites across the Internet. I and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to this site and other sites.

I may use cookies to store information about visitors’ preferences, record user-specific information, customize site content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser. Some of my advertising partners may use cookies and/or web beacons on the site. I have no access to or control over the cookies that are used by third-party advertisers. You should consult the respective privacy policies of third-party ad servers such as Google for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices. This privacy policy does not apply to, and I cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers.

I may update this Privacy Policy at any time by posting an updated version of this page.

By using this site, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, and you agree that it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically to maintain awareness of any modifications. Your use of this site following any modifications to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.
