Privacy Policy | The Realistic Optimist


Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is being used online. PII is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read my privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how I collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with my website.

What personal information do I collect from the people that visit my website?

I collect information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter.

How do I use your information?

To send periodic emails.

How do I protect your information?

I use regular Malware Scanning.

I do not use an SSL certificate because I do not store personal information on this website.

Do I use ‘cookies’?

I may use cookies for tracking purposes.

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Third-party disclosure

I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information.

Third-party links

When you click on links on my site that take you to third party websites, you will be subject to the third party’s privacy policies. While I support the protection of privacy on the Internet, I have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of third party sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Google

I use Google Analytics on my website.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to users based on previous visits to sites on the Internet. Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.

Amazon Affiliates Disclosure

I am 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 linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

I collect your email address in order to:

Send periodic emails.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM, I agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, I never collect or maintain information at my site from those I actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Your Consent

By using my site, you consent to my online privacy policy.

I reserve the right to change this privacy policy from time to time by publishing the revised privacy policy on my website.
