I respect YOUR privacy

The following is for this site only – amckinnis.com – and is not intended to supercede any lawful privacy laws or regulations.  Any mentioned of “site” or “website” refers directly to amckinnis.com and not to any other website. First of all, by clicking through the website (and even without review this page) you are “accepting” my policy (that’s how most of the internet works).  If you have any problems or serious heartburn contact me via email amckinnis@gmail.com and let me know.

My privacy policy is fairly simple: This blog does not share personal information with third-parties without your knowledge, and in most cases, your consent.  Nor do we store any personally identifiable information about your visit to this blog.  We may track your browsing activity on this site, but will not be able to track you personally through your personal information.

Link:  What is Personal Identifiable Information?  

The internet is an interesting place, and once I release information, I am not responsible for republished content from this blog on other blogs or websites without my permission.

Other websites that may be accessible through this Website have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. If you click a link and your internet journey takes you any other website, I highly suggest a review of that website’s privacy policy. Basically, I can’t control what I don’t control – so you are on your own, once you leave this website and these webpages.

I do reserve the right to change this privacy policy without notice. I will do my best to keep all registered users up to date on any changes to this policy or any other Terms and Conditions for my website.
  

Links, Content, & Connected Material

LINKS: Certain links on this site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, you can trust that I only recommend products or services that add value (in my opinion) to my readers and clients. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

CONTENT: Some content on this site is written and produced by third parties (either individuals or companies), in many cases, this content will be their opinions and may not reflect my own. I believe in the ability of people to express their opinion (even if I don’t necessarily agree with it), therefore, in the cases of third party content, they own it, 100% – I’m only sharing it.

CONNECTED CONTENT: In the cases of connected content, if you click on the link, you take full responsibility of that action – I’m not responsible, so click wisely.

DATA TRACKING and COOKIES:  To facilitate and customize your experience with the Website, we store cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a User’s (meaning yours) computer and contains information about the User (you). We use cookies to save you time while using the Website, remind us who you are, and track and target User interests in order to provide a customized experience. Cookies also allow us to collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you, like which pages you visited and what links you clicked on. Use of this information helps us to create a more user-friendly experience for all visitors. In addition, we may use Third Party Advertising Companies to display advertisements on our Website (this is not likely on this website, but I reserve the right to do it or try it). As part of their service, they may place separate cookies on your computer. We have no access to or control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by our Website only and does not cover the use of cookies by any Advertiser. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may be able to modify your browser settings to decline cookies. Please note that if you decline or delete these cookies, some parts of the Website may not work properly.

OTHER TRACKING METHODS:  I know, this seems like a lot, but really, this protects both of us.  Finally, we may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate a Non-Personally Identifiable notice of that action. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behavior on our Website, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance.       



Comments & Commenting

The internet is about engaging with other people – many of which you will never meet face-to-face. I encourage everyone to comment (where available) and to express yourself freely. BUT, I reserve the right to delete any comments I deem inappropriate, for whatever reason is important to me.  Also, I won’t promise to “let you know” if or when your comment is deleted.

So comment professionally.
