If you turn cookies off, some neat dudads and features will be turned off.

I love cookies. I like raisin oatmeal and chocolate chip the best. I, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies and third-party cookies or other third-party things to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Additionally, you can opt out by popping over to the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out site or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on. Now you know.
How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?
When and where there is a DNT (Do Not Track) thing in place, we honor those signals and we Do Not Track, we do not plant cookies, and we do not use advertising in such cases.
Our site permits third-party behavioral tracking. Deal with it.
It’s also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
The COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) puts parents in the driver's seat when it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old. The Federal Trade Commission enforces the COPPA Rule that delineates what website operators must do online to preserve children’s privacy and safety.
I never have and never will market to children under the age of 13 years old, specifically.
Fair Information Practices
What is the keystone of privacy law in the USA? Why, it's the The Fair Information Practices Principles! Furthermore, the concepts they comprise have been valuable in the growth of data protection laws in the entire solar system as we know it. Studying the Fair Information Practice Principles and the implementation thereof is crucial to make sure everything is ship shape with the multitudinous privacy laws that guard personal information.
We will take the following responsive action, in order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, if a data breach occur:
We will let you know via email
• Within one week (actually 7 business days)
We will let the user know via in-site notification
• Within one week (actually 7 business days)
Additionally, I concur to the Individual Redress Principle. That's the one that demands people have the right to legally guard enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who knowingly or unknowingly break the law. This rule demands not only that persons have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals can go to the courts, buildings, or government agencies to look into or prosecute violations by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a decree that lays down the rules for commercial email, makes demands for commercial messages, conveys recipients the right to have emails halted in their tracks from being sent to them, and delineates severe discipline for bad boys who disobey.
We occasionally collect your email address in order to:
• Respond to questions, send information, and other complaints, praises, requests, comments or questions
• Market to our humble mailing list or proceed to send annoying emails to our clients after the first transaction has been revealed.
To be in complaint with CANSPAM, we subscribe to the following:
• I do not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
• I identify the message as an advertisement in some obvious way.
• I include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
• I monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used (I don't use this).
• I honor opt-out/unsubscribe appeals promptly.
• Permit users to unsubscribe by clicking the link at the lower part of each email.
Not that I even send mass emails anyway, but if you would, at any time or place, prefer to unsubscribe from my sending you emails in the future, you can email me at
- Or follow the instructions at the bottom of each email.
and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
