Privacy & Disclosure
Your privacy is very important to me! Which is why I want to make sure you understand exactly how my site works and how it involves your privacy and data usage. Please read below for details — and excuse the legal jargon!
To put it simply – I only collect what is necessary to run my site well. This means that any info that is collected helps me better provide content that you would like. (Which is what we both want!)
If at any point, you need me to delete any data that may be stored through any of your comments or interactions on the site, please email me: jennifernicely at jennifernicely dot com
Here is the info that we may collect and how it is used:
Information You Voluntarily Submit: You may voluntarily submit information when you leave a comment or fill out a contact form. This information may be stored on the site, but is not used in any other way, unless it is to respond directly to a comment or message through the form.
Automatically-Collected Information: We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Website. For example, when you use the Website, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
Personal Data: While using the Website, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Data"). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:
* Email address
* First name and last name
* Cookies and Usage Data
We may use your Personal Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link in any email we send.
Cookies: We may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Website. If you’d like to opt out of cookies, you can adjust your browser settings.
My affiliate partners track info so that my site can remain relevant to readers.
The Website currently uses Google Analytics, which tracks how users interact with and use the site. It provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics. Again, this is all a part of helping me create content best suited to you.
I will always disclose when I use affiliate links, have been given a product, or paid for a post. This complies with the FTC and is also simply the right thing to do.
If you have any questions about this, please message me! Know that your privacy is important, and that I collect as little as possible to run my site and keep readers and writers happy and engaged. :)
