Privacy policy page

Hello! This page was added because apparently Google says I must. But quite honestly I don't understand exactly what it is they want me to do.

I don't personally collect any information. Of course, if you send me an email or comment on my blog I will have whatever information you included with that.

I don't personally set or leave cookies - I don't know how and don't see any reason to do it. Other scripts on my site like Wordpress may, and maybe Adsense does too. You would have to ask Adsense though to know for sure.

According to Jennifer Slegg/Jenstar (thanks Jennifer!) I should write this:

The privacy of visitors to is important to me.

At , I recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information I receive and collect when you visit, and how I safeguard your information. I never sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files

As with most other websites, I collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons*

We do use cookies** to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

* I have no idea what a 'web beacon' is either.

** I don't leave cookies myself - I don't even know how to - but maybe adsense or scripts used on my site like Wordpress do.

If 'europeforvisitors' (nice site by the way - you should visit it) will forgive me for paraphrasing his site:

'As a not extremely technical type of woman with limited time, working in a room in my basement, I don't even know how to spy on you. When I hear the term 'privacy issue,' I think of an open bathroom window facing the street.'
