Privacy Policy for The Character Comma

Privacy Policy for The Character Comma

Your privacy is important! I will NEVER sell your personal information to third parties.

Here is information on what types of personal information I receive and collect when you use and visit TheCharacterComma.com, and how I safeguard your information.

Log Files

Like most other websites, I collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited the site, and which pages you visited throughout the site.

Cookies and Web Beacons

The Character Comma uses cookies to store information such as your personal preferences. This could include only showing you a popup once every few weeks instead of every time you visit.

The Character Comma uses Google Analytics as its Data Processor.

The Character Comma is also supported by third party advertisements. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on my 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 typically 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).

If you see writing-related ads on The Character Comma, it’s not a for-sure indicator of this. AdSense can also choose ads based on content in The Character Comma. It will see keywords like “writing tips” in my articles, then decide to display writing-related ads based on that.

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies 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 this site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

I, the blog runner, am the only one with access to this information. If you wish to be removed from the list, email me at emilie@thecharactercomma.com and I will delete your information from MailChimp as soon as I can.

I reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to this website and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe anytime and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link.
