Privacy policy

Dear Internet Friend,

Listen, I'm a privacy advocate. But not when it's a marketer just wanting to optimize ad dollars by showing me ads or selling me products I WANT instead of junk I don't.

We use cookies on our web site in order to know what page you enter my site on, what page you exit on, how long you stay here, what browser you used and also to track who referred you to our site.

That's what cookies do.  Nearly everything else you hear about them is b.s. and hysteria.  They are extremely small text files that give marketers basic information make your web surfing experience better.

I use Human Click/Live Person or  or a comparable service which allows us to chat with customers real time and gives us the above basic stats.  It tells me what ip address people are on, city, state, urls, time on site. This is all info a marketer NEEDS to know to better serve their customers. Wordfence also lets me see visitors on site by ip address which again basically tells me what city they are in.

On a lot of my sites I have Google Analytics on them. This again tells time on site, url's visited, sometimes actions.

I try to track as many actions on a site as I can like links clicked, opt ins, etc.

We share info with 3rd parties like Live Person, Google Analytics, and so forth. We're always testing different programs that track different stuff. I use Adtrackz and budurl to track clicks on links, actions and sales.

I use Facebooks ads so sometimes they have tracking code.  Facebook *may* collect:

  • Http Headers – Anything present in HTTP headers. HTTP Headers are a standard web protocol sent between any browser request and any server on the internet. HTTP Headers include IP addresses, information about the web browser, page location, document, referrer and person using the website.
  • Pixel-specific Data – Includes Pixel ID and the Facebook Cookie.
  • Button Click Data – Includes any buttons clicked by site visitors, the labels of those buttons and any pages visited as a result of the button clicks.
  • Optional Values – Developers and marketers can optionally choose to send additional information about the visit through conversion tracking. Example custom data events are conversion value, page type, and more.
  • Form Field Names – Includes website field names like ‘email’, ‘address’, ‘quantity’ for when you purchase a product or service. We don't capture field values unless you include them as part of Advanced Matchingconversion tracking, or user properties.
  • Also, we take credit card orders on our site. We maintain databases with your order information in secure areas.

    You're probably right to be concerned about privacy. I ain't the one you should be worried about though. The programs we use are innocuous and made to help us serve you products you WANT to buy. And to help us buy ads that work, so we are here tomorrow to serve you.
