Information Collection and Usage
The sites use Google Analytics and Jetpack to gather information about site visitors, such as the number of visitors, general demographics, etc. Site visitors can also optionally provide his/her email address through an account on Disqus to leave a comment on the site, or to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email addresses are also collected through the contact form on the site.
With this information, I will strive to provide a better experience for site visitors. Non-identifiable, general information that is collected may be provided to companies, third-party advertisers, influencer networks, and similar organizations to provide better experiences in ads, sponsored content, et cetera, or to qualify for future campaigns. This information may also be provided to site readers and social media to share the general statistics and growth of the site (for example, I can say that I doubled the amount of readers on a certain day, had over a certain number of pageviews in a single day, etc.). Please be aware that services such as Google, Jetpack, and WordPress.com/Wordpress.org will also have access to this information since they are the ones who provide me with these services.
Third parties (such as, but not limited to, ad companies or affiliates) may also collect information from site visitors in order to provide things such as ads, sponsored post opportunities, services, or products; additionally, these third parties may place or discern cookies in the visitor’s browser. The third party’s site policies should be referenced to and adhered to for any concerns/questions.
