This privacy policy sets out how I use and protect any information that you give while using VitaLivesFree.com.

Should I ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

I may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 4th June, 2015.

What I collect

I collect your email address and first name when you sign up for my email updates. When you post a comment on the blog, you will be asked to enter your name, email address, website URL.

What I do with this information

I require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better reading experience service:

  • I may send you email updates when new blog posts are published.
  • I may (very) occasionally contact you asking for your feedback or interests, so that I can make sure my blog delivers what you want to read or watch.
  • If I ever write my first book, you will be the first ones to know via the email address you have provided me with.

Security

I take privacy very seriously and I hate spam just as much as the next person (or maybe even more), so I’d like to assure you that your information is secure with me. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, I have put in place suitable physical and electronic procedures to safeguard the information I collect online.

The use of cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

VitaLivesFree uses traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps me analyse data about web page traffic and improve my blog in order to tailor it to your needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Advertising

Some of my advertisers occasionally serve you cookies as well. I do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers. I use advertising service vendors to help present advertisements on the website,which include: http://www.blogher.com, http://www.gourmetads.com, and http://www.google.com/adsense. These vendors may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to serve you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on this and other sites you have visited, to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements. In doing so, these vendors may collect non-personal data such as your browser type, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other clickstream data. The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by these advertising service vendors is subject to their own privacy policies, not mine, and Service Provider disclaims all liability in connection therewith.

VitaLivesFree may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my blog, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
