The privacy of readers visiting The Commentator is important to me. I fully respect and recognize the seriousness of the matter of personal information.
The Commentator does not collect personal information or require emails for comments. Selling personal information to third parties is not an issue.
As with most other websites, data is contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as Videotron, Bell Sympatico, AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited and which pages you visited on our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
I use third party advertisements on friendlymisanthropist.blogspot.com in an effort to support the site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on my site. In turn, it 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, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (for example, showing Montreal real estate ads to someone in Montreal) 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 my 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 my site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
