So what information is being gathered here?

Web Tracker

To have an idea of which pages are popular, where you all come from, which browsers are being used, what the entry and exit pages are etcetera, I use StatCounter on this site. It's a pretty good web tracker that can also be used to analyze trends, track user movement around the site, and gather demographic information. Please rest assured: none of this info is linked to any information that is personally identifiable.


We serve third party advertisements that use cookies, DART cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site, to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site. We currently work with these ad companies or affiliates: Google Adsense (Google Ads), Firetrust (MailWasher), and Shareasale (jv16 PowerTools). Please check their web sites for respective privacy policies.

OK, now what are these cookies and beacons things?

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Our site does not use cookies but some of our business partners do. However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

A DART cookie is a unique, persistent cookie. The information from the DART cookie contains the number of unique users advertisements were displayed to, how many users clicked on Internet ads or paid listings, and which ads or paid listings they clicked on.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single web site or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic and third-party services that provide advertising on our site. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

Fine, but can I also get rid of them?

Sure. Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with this site, should you so choose. You can opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.
