We respect your pri­va­cy and are com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing it. The pur­pose of this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy is to inform you what per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion we may col­lect and how it may be used. This state­ment only applies to this Website.


Infor­ma­tion You Vol­un­tar­i­ly Sub­mit to the Web­site: We may col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion from you such as your name or email address. For exam­ple, you may vol­un­tar­i­ly sub­mit infor­ma­tion to the Web­site by leav­ing a com­ment, sub­scrib­ing to a newslet­ter, or sub­mit­ting a con­tact form. In addi­tion, you are able to cre­ate a user pro­file, which allows you to cre­ate a user­name and pass­word. We will store the user­name, but your pass­word will not be vis­i­ble in our records.

If you choose to link your Face­book, Insta­gram, and/or Google accounts to your user pro­file, we will receive your name, email address and pro­file pic­ture asso­ci­at­ed with that account.

Auto­mat­i­cal­ly-Col­lect­ed Infor­ma­tion: We auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lect cer­tain infor­ma­tion about you and the device with which you access the Web­site.

We may also col­lect infor­ma­tion about actions you take when using the Web­site, such as links clicked.

Cook­ies: We may log infor­ma­tion using cook­ies, which are small data files stored on your brows­er by the Web­site. We may use both ses­sion cook­ies, which expire when you close your brows­er, and per­sis­tent cook­ies, which stay on your brows­er until delet­ed, to pro­vide you with a more per­son­al­ized expe­ri­ence on the Website.


We may use the infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed in the fol­low­ing ways:

To oper­ate and main­tain the Web­site;
To cre­ate your account, iden­ti­fy you as a user of the Web­site, and cus­tomize the Web­site for your account;
To send you pro­mo­tion­al infor­ma­tion, such as newslet­ters. Each email pro­mo­tion will pro­vide infor­ma­tion on how to opt-out of future mail­ings;
To send you admin­is­tra­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tions, such as admin­is­tra­tive emails, con­fir­ma­tion emails, tech­ni­cal notices, updates on poli­cies, or secu­ri­ty alerts;
To respond to your com­ments or inquiries;
To pro­vide you with user sup­port;

To pro­tect, inves­ti­gate, and deter against unau­tho­rized or ille­gal activity.


We may share your infor­ma­tion with third par­ties when you explic­it­ly autho­rize us to share your information.

Addi­tion­al­ly, the Web­site may use third-par­ty ser­vice providers to ser­vice var­i­ous aspects of the Web­site. Each third-par­ty ser­vice provider’s use of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion is dic­tat­ed by their respec­tive pri­va­cy policies.

The Web­site cur­rent­ly uses the fol­low­ing third-par­ty ser­vice providers:

Google Ana­lyt­ics – this ser­vice tracks Web­site usage and pro­vides infor­ma­tion such as refer­ring web­sites and user actions on the Web­site. Google Ana­lyt­ics may cap­ture your IP address, but no oth­er per­son­al infor­ma­tion is cap­tured by Google Analytics.

Flo Desk – this ser­vice is used for deliv­ery of email updates and newslet­ters. We store your name and email address for pur­pos­es of deliv­er­ing such com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Please refer to Flo Desk’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy for fur­ther information.

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)

The Web­site works with Medi­avine to man­age third-par­ty inter­est-based adver­tis­ing appear­ing on the Web­site. Medi­avine serves con­tent and adver­tise­ments when you vis­it the Web­site, which may use first and third-par­ty cook­ies. A cook­ie is a small text file which is sent to your com­put­er or mobile device (referred to in this pol­i­cy as a “device”) by the web serv­er so that a web­site can remem­ber some infor­ma­tion about your brows­ing activ­i­ty on the Website.

First par­ty cook­ies are cre­at­ed by the web­site that you are vis­it­ing. A third-par­ty cook­ie is fre­quent­ly used in behav­ioral adver­tis­ing and ana­lyt­ics and is cre­at­ed by a domain oth­er than the web­site you are vis­it­ing. Third-par­ty cook­ies, tags, pix­els, bea­cons and oth­er sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies (col­lec­tive­ly, “Tags”) may be placed on the Web­site to mon­i­tor inter­ac­tion with adver­tis­ing con­tent and to tar­get and opti­mize advertising.

Each inter­net brows­er has func­tion­al­i­ty so that you can block both first and third-par­ty cook­ies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” fea­ture of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accept­ing new cook­ies, how to receive noti­fi­ca­tion of new cook­ies, how to dis­able exist­ing cook­ies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more infor­ma­tion about cook­ies and how to dis­able them, you can con­sult the infor­ma­tion at All About Cook­ies.

With­out cook­ies you may not be able to take full advan­tage of the Web­site con­tent and fea­tures. Please note that reject­ing cook­ies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you vis­it our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-per­son­al­ized adver­tise­ments on the Website.

The Web­site col­lects the fol­low­ing data using a cook­ie when serv­ing per­son­al­ized ads:

  • IP Address
  • Oper­at­ing Sys­tem type
  • Oper­at­ing Sys­tem version
  • Device Type
  • Lan­guage of the website
  • Web brows­er type
  • Email (in hashed form)

Medi­avine Part­ners (com­pa­nies list­ed below with whom Medi­avine shares data) may also use this data to link to oth­er end user infor­ma­tion the part­ner has inde­pen­dent­ly col­lect­ed to deliv­er tar­get­ed adver­tise­ments. Medi­avine Part­ners may also sep­a­rate­ly col­lect data about end users from oth­er sources, such as adver­tis­ing IDs or pix­els, and link that data to data col­lect­ed from Medi­avine pub­lish­ers in order to pro­vide inter­est-based adver­tis­ing across your online expe­ri­ence, includ­ing devices, browsers and apps. This data includes usage data, cook­ie infor­ma­tion, device infor­ma­tion, infor­ma­tion about inter­ac­tions between users and adver­tise­ments and web­sites, geolo­ca­tion data, traf­fic data, and infor­ma­tion about a visitor’s refer­ral source to a par­tic­u­lar web­site. Medi­avine Part­ners may also cre­ate unique IDs to cre­ate audi­ence seg­ments, which are used to pro­vide tar­get­ed advertising.

If you would like more infor­ma­tion about this prac­tice and to know your choic­es to opt-in or opt-out of this data col­lec­tion, please vis­it Nation­al Adver­tis­ing Ini­tia­tive opt out page. You may also vis­it Dig­i­tal Adver­tis­ing Alliance web­site and Net­work Adver­tis­ing Ini­tia­tive web­site to learn more infor­ma­tion about inter­est-based adver­tis­ing. You may down­load the App­Choic­es app at Dig­i­tal Adver­tis­ing Alliance’s App­Choic­es app to opt out in con­nec­tion with mobile apps, or use the plat­form con­trols on your mobile device to opt out.

At this time, your per­son­al infor­ma­tion is not shared with any oth­er third-par­ty appli­ca­tions. The list above may be amend­ed from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion.

Except when required by law, we will not sell, dis­trib­ute, or reveal your email address­es or oth­er per­son­al infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent; how­ev­er, we may dis­close or trans­fer per­son­al infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed through the Web­site to third par­ties who acquire all or a por­tion of our busi­ness, which may be the result of a merg­er, con­sol­i­da­tion, or pur­chase of all or a por­tion of our assets, or in con­nec­tion with any bank­rupt­cy or reor­ga­ni­za­tion pro­ceed­ing brought by or against us.


From time to time, we may use anony­mous data, which does not iden­ti­fy you alone, or when com­bined with data from oth­er par­ties. This type of anony­mous data may be pro­vid­ed to oth­er par­ties for mar­ket­ing, adver­tis­ing, or oth­er uses. Exam­ples of this anony­mous data may include ana­lyt­ics or infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed from cookies.


If you cre­ate a user pro­file on the Web­site or leave a com­ment, cer­tain infor­ma­tion may be pub­licly vis­i­ble. To cre­ate a user pro­file, you must choose a user­name and pass­word and input your email address for pro­file con­fir­ma­tion. Your email address will nev­er be avail­able pub­licly. At your option, you may also add an avatar, a pro­file descrip­tion, and a link to your website.

You may also choose to link your Face­book, Insta­gram, and Google Account.

Users may see your user­name, avatar, pro­file descrip­tion and web­site information.


The Web­site uses cook­ies to store vis­i­tors’ pref­er­ences, record user-spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion on what pages users access or vis­it, ensure that vis­i­tors are not repeat­ed­ly sent the same ban­ner ads, cus­tomize Web­site con­tent based on vis­i­tors’ brows­er type or oth­er infor­ma­tion that the vis­i­tor sends. Cook­ies may also be used by third-par­ty ser­vices, such as Google Ana­lyt­ics, as described herein.

Users may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of cook­ies, by the Web­site, by using a cor­re­spond­ing set­ting of your inter­net brows­er and may thus per­ma­nent­ly deny the set­ting of cook­ies. Fur­ther­more, already set cook­ies may be delet­ed at any time via an Inter­net brows­er or oth­er soft­ware pro­grams. This is pos­si­ble in all pop­u­lar Inter­net browsers. How­ev­er, if users deac­ti­vate the set­ting of cook­ies in your Inter­net brows­er, not all func­tions of our Web­site may be entire­ly usable.


Dis­play Ads

We may use third-par­ty adver­tis­ing com­pa­nies to serve con­tent and adver­tise­ments when you vis­it the Web­site, which may use cook­ies, as not­ed above.

Retar­get­ing Ads

From time to time, the Web­site may engage in remar­ket­ing efforts with third-par­ty com­pa­nies, such as Google, Face­book, or Insta­gram, in order to mar­ket the Web­site. These com­pa­nies use cook­ies to serve ads based on someone’s past vis­its to the Website.

Affil­i­ate Pro­gram Participation

The Web­site may engage in affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing, which is done by embed­ding track­ing links into the Web­site. If you click on a link for an affil­i­ate part­ner­ship, a cook­ie will be placed on your brows­er to track any sales for pur­pos­es of commissions.

Glen­da Embree is a par­tic­i­pant in the Ama­zon Ser­vices LLC Asso­ciates Pro­gram, an affil­i­ate adver­tis­ing pro­gram designed to pro­vide a means for sites to earn adver­tis­ing fees by adver­tis­ing and links to As part of this Ama­zon Asso­ciates pro­gram, the Web­site will post cus­tomized links, pro­vid­ed by Ama­zon, to track the refer­rals to their web­site. This pro­gram uti­lizes cook­ies to track vis­its for the pur­pos­es of assign­ing com­mis­sion on these sales.


On the Web­site, you may sub­scribe to our newslet­ter, which may be used for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es. All newslet­ters sent may con­tain track­ing pix­els. The pix­el is embed­ded in emails and allows an analy­sis of the suc­cess of online mar­ket­ing cam­paigns. Because of these track­ing pix­els, we may see if and when you open an email and which links with­in the email you click. Also, this allows the Web­site to adapt the con­tent of future newslet­ters to the inter­ests of the user. This behav­ior will not be passed on to third parties.
