At Pottery Making Info privacy of your personal information is important. Below is the policy on what types of personal information is received and collected when you use and visit potterymakinginfo.com, and how your information is safeguarded. Your information will never be sold, rented or given to third parties.
Log Files and Google Analytics
As with most other websites, Pottery Making Info collects and uses the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout the site.
Google Analytics is used to organize and present data about visitors. It will not show me names, addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers or anything else that will help me identify an individual visitor.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies are used to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit the site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some features, such as forums.
Third party advertisements are used on potterymakinginfo.com to support the site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on the site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
DART cookies may also be used for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies from this site or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with the site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums, accounts or leaving comments.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
