Terms and Conditions
I recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here are my terms and conditions that you agree to when you visit WhitneyKCole.com as well as information on how I safeguard your information. I never sell your personal information to third parties.
Analytics and Privacy
As with most other websites, data contained in log files may be collected for analytics purposes. I use Google Analytics to collect data about each visit, but your name or other personally identifying information will not be associated with the data that Google Analytics collects.
Any personal information, such as name or email, that I collect through a contact form or a subscription will not be shared or sold to a third party.
Cookies and Web Beacons
External Links and Advertisers
I may also use third party advertisements on my website to help support the site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this website, 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. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with this website as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
I may also may use affiliate links which means that if you purchase certain products promoted on my blog, I will receive commission on those sales.
External Links on My Portfolio
My portfolio contains links to articles I have written on other websites. Since my clients own those websites, I have no control over analytics tools they may use, advertisers, or third-party links. I write for reputable clients, but be aware that if you click on a link in my portfolio, you are leaving this website to visit one that I have no jurisdiction over.
