The privacy of visitors to our site is important to us.


I recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information I receive and collect when you use and visit my site, and how I safeguard your information. I do not sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files

As with most other websites, I collect and use 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 or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit my site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited my site, and which pages you visited throughout my site. This helps us understand what content is valuable to you as well as our audience.

Your E-mail Address

This is a free content site. I do not require any information from you (not even a user name or password). I do not sell any information from our site to any outside party. The only e-mail sent from my website is in response to an inquiry that you may send us or as a result of joining my double opt-in e-mail list. If anything comes to your attention which could potentially be a violation of this policy, please let us know immediately so that I can investigate it and try to correct it.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Advertisements

I use third party advertisements to support my site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on my 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 advertisements to someone in New York, for example), or showing certain advertisements based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking advertisements to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off my cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in internet security programs. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with my site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to log in to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

By using third-party advertising companies to serve advertisements when you visit my website, these companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Balanza & Beyond uses Google for advertisements.
