Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy for www.TheFloridaBlog.com

 

I understand that people are very concerned about their online privacy and the collection of their personal data; for these reasons, I have developed this Privacy Policy in order to keep my users informed as to what information I am collecting and how I am collecting it.

I do use third-party advertising companies and plug-ins that collect certain anonymous information about your activities while on my site. This collection allows me to better develop the services on this site and for my advertisers to better tailor ads for goods or services to your interests. The Florida Blog will never sell or share personally identifiable information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, etc. I wouldn’t want my email address sold to some spammy email company, so I would never do that to anyone else. As with almost every website you visit, we do use cookies. If you choose to disable this feature in your web browser, you will still be able to use our site.

If you would like to research the privacy policies of the companies and plug-ins that I use, you can do so on their individual websites.

There are only specific instances in which your names, email addresses or mailing addresses are required:

  • Registering for my email newsletter requires your name and email address.
  • Registering to comment on my blog posts requires your name and email address.
  • Communicating with me via the form on the “Contact” page requires your name and email address.
  • Using the Commentluv plug-in when leaving a comment requires a website address.
  • Winning a blog contest or give-away requires your mailing address (emailed privately to contact@thefloridablog.com) for prize delivery.
  • Purchasing items from a blog “garage sale” requires your name, PayPal email address (to send an invoice to) and your mailing address (for item delivery). In this instance, the information will be privately emailed to contact@thefloridablog.com and is NOT to be posted in a public comment as with some blogs. I feel that sending information privately is safer than posting it as a public comment.

On all of these occasions, I am the only one seeing your personal info. This blog is a one-woman show, I am the only person checking emails/messages or writing out labels.

By continuing to use this site, you are consenting to our privacy policy. Any future changes to our privacy policy will be listed on this page and dated. Our current Privacy Policy is effective as of 10/30/2017.
