For YOUR Eyes Only?!
'I'm Just Looking Thanks' and Frequent Visitors Alike
I use Google Analytics to collect non-identifying standard analytical log information, the number of visitors to each page within the site, details of visitor behavior such as which pages they go to, how they found the site (directly, search engine result, link from social media), and other random information. Data collected by Google Analytics about my website is retained for 50 months.
I use some Affiliated Marketing Companies
for my Resource Link and other pages, which are CLEARLY MARKED as
"affiliated link," indicating possible compensation if/when a sale is
made on that site after clicking from a link on my site. Once you click over to THEIR website; THEIR individual
privacy, terms and cookie policies will apply instead of mine, while you are on
Additionally, I use Google Translate, which provides the option of viewing my entire website in 103 different languages; and therefore some data is stored also by Google Translate (based on THEIR terms, privacy and cookie policies that take effect when you use the Translate language option); and over which I have no control or use of any of that information.
On sign up for my monthly update e-newsletter, I collect minimal personal information such as name and email address; which are used strictly to supply the either on-going or one-time info you requested on sign up and/or notify you of new offers and freebies now and then. I don't rent, sell or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses.
You can unsubscribe from my emails at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails; or by sending an email with a request to be removed from my mailing list, directly to [email protected].
You are entitled to access your personal information that may be retained by my website, and to request a copy please email a request to Andy B. All info is kept online and/or in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; regardless of where it is collected from worldwide, and it is stored in English. You may also ask that your personal information be deleted if it is being stored by my site using the same request link.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device each time you visit any website. Cookies do lots of things like remember your language or currency settings, reveal error messages when moving to different pages and generally improve the user experience. Cookies are sent back to the originating website on each visit you make after the initial one, or to another website that recognizes that cookie.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that allow website operators to link all your actions during a session; starting when you open a window on your browser and ending with all cookies being deleted when you close the browser window.
Third party cookies allow other sites/companies to track the success of/customize their application that is also present on my site; but I can't see or use any of this data and that company can't see or use any data that may be stored on my site. For instance, if you ‘share’ through Twitter or 'repost' on Facebook, cookies might be placed on your device from these websites, and THEIR policies will apply to them; but Twitter/Facebook will NOT have access to any data stored on my site nor will I have access to their stored data.
I use a combination of the above types of cookies but most of them are from other companies that I mentioned before; so any and/or all information is stored with those companies under THEIR terms and policies, unless I specifically stated different elsewhere on this website.
These Policies are current as of August 18, 2018 and will be updated as necessary. Notice via a post on the home page of my website with a link will signal any new changes after this date.
