The privacy of my visitors to http://beinghomeblog.com is important to me.
Following is information on what types of personal information I receive and collect when you use and visit the blog, and how I safeguard your information. I never sell your personal information to third parties:
As with most other websites, this site collects and uses 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, Verizon or Comcast, for example), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome), the time you visited my site and which pages you visited throughout my site.
Cookies and Web Beacons:
We also use third party advertisements on http://beinghomeblog.com to support the 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.
This site contains code which tracks visits for the purpose of retargeting for promotions and products on facebook.
I welcome your comments and questions on most posts. If not, I’ll close the combox. Please keep them positive and/or constructive. I reserve the right to delete, edit or decline to publish any comments not in keeping with the above. Please don’t waste your time by commenting for the purpose of offending me, my family or other commenters. Comments resembling advertisements or spam will be deleted. I reserve the right to block any commenters who have been offensive on this or any other website that I publish.
Ads and Ad Networks
In the sidebar and sometimes in posts, you will see ads by Google. I have very little control over the content of the ads but they should be loosely related to the content of my posts, so hopefully, you won’t find them offensive. If you do notice something inappropriate or offensive, please contact me. The ads help defray the costs associated with the site, so thanks for your tolerance of them.
Occassionally I include affiliate links in blog posts. If you make a purchase through a link, I receive a commission at no extra cost to you. Sometimes the link or coupon code will give you a discount on the product.
I belong to Amazon associates which is an affiliate network. If you click an affiliate link and make a purchase, I receive a small commission and you don’t pay extra…win-win! Again, any earnings help defray the cost of running this site. I also sell used books on Amazon in my store called “Being Home Books”.
Anytime I post a review of a product or book, it will be honest. If I have received a complimentary product or item, for the purpose of reviewing, the opinions will be my own and the circumstances will be fully disclosed in the relevant blog post.
