Information Collection and Usage
The sites use Google Analytics and Jetpack to gather information about site visitors, such as the number of visitors, general demographics, etc. By visiting the site, information such as your general location and demographics will be collected in order to ensure the best user experience. However, no personal information will be collected.
Site visitors can also optionally provide his/her email address through an account on Disqus to leave a comment on the sites, or to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email addresses are also collected through the contact form on the site. However, none of this information is personally identifiable by the sites.
Third parties (such as, but not limited to, ad companies or affiliates) may also collect information from site visitors in order to provide things such as ads, sponsored post opportunities, services, or products, in addition to information collected that is necessary to run the site (such as information collected through plugins); additionally, these third parties may place or discern cookies in the visitor’s browser. The third party’s site policies should be referenced to and adhered to for any concerns/questions.
No personally-identifiable information will be shared with others unless required by law and/or if I believe there is something concerning in its nature. If that is the case, then I have the full rights to contact the proper authorities. Your information will never be sold to third-parties.
The sites never knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If I become aware that this information has been collected, then I will take the proper steps to get this information removed. If you would like your information to be removed, please contact me directly at email@example.com.

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.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

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/.
