If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Privacy Policy

Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I make money based on the success of my advertisements on this website.  

What Does Google Analytics collect?

When you click on one of my blog pages, some data about you (nothing personally identifiable, more like stats that are compiled to help drive my content) is collected.  For example, the “analytics” let me know when people visit my blog, what types of technology they use to access it (i.e. your cell phone or iPad), what part of the country people are from who it on my page, what search terms were used to find this blog, how long you stayed on my site, and more.

What Do I Do With Your Data?

Like millions of other website owners who utilize Google Analytics, I utilize your data to help me determine what type of content you would like to read about.  If I provide content that you need, my sales increase.  Specifically, I run reports from the analytics platform to help target your needs. 

All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Want to Opt Out?  You can also opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.

What Companies Do I Represent?

Other than the combined data I do not use your information for anything else.  It is not sold or manipulated in any way.  Bottomline, I do not know who you are, and I will not track you down.  In fact, you know far more about me than I know about you.

But, if you have any questions or want more information regarding this, please comment on one of my posts, and I will be in touch.

Thank you for your support!

🙂 Mamma
