Your privacy is incredibly important to me, and I recognise that privacy of your personal information is important. No personal information is ever given to third parties.

(a) Collection of Information.  I only collect personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc, when voluntarily submitted by visitors. For example, mailing information is required to award giveaway prizes to winners, but this information is never used or sold for any additional purpose beyond fulfilling the prize. Personally identifiable information is used solely to address your specific request and is not sold to third parties or market researchers.

(b) Distribution of Personally Identifiable Information. We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorised transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. No information will be provided unless I am asked to give it for legal purposes.

(c) Commitment to Data Security. Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only I personally (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information.

(d) Cookies and Web Beacons. I may use third party advertisements on the Blog. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our 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 ads to someone in New York, for example) 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 our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security.

(e) Children. I do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If I become aware that I have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, I will delete such information from all records. Competitions and giveaways are open to all over the age of 16 as long as those aged between 16-18 or those living with parents have their permission to give out their postal address if they win and are due to be posted a prize.

These policies are subject to change at anytime.
