PRIVACY POLICIES

By visiting and using the website, you accept and agree to be bound by this privacy policy. Your continued use of the website after posting of any changes to our Privacy Policy constitutes your acceptance of those changes and updates. You must not access or use the website if you do not wish to be bound by this Privacy Policy.

If you become an email subscriber to this blog, I will never sell your contact information.

Because this blog uses an ad company (Monumetric) to place advertisements throughout this website, it is important to let you know the following:

  • Third party vendors use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website or other websites.
  • Users may opt out of Google’s personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings. You may opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info. For third party ads, you may visit those advertisers’ websites to opt out of the use of cookies for personalized advertising (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability) or by visiting www.aboutads.info

You have likely experienced this thousands of times before (Facebook is King at this), but I will get in trouble if I don’t include this disclaimer.

Thank you for visiting! If you ever find that the ad placement is interfering with your ability to enjoy the content on this site, please feel free to let me know by sending me an email at [email protected]
