Our Privacy Policy & Disclosures


 

Hey, we all use the internet. I respect your privacy as much as my own. I’m fully committed to safeguarding your online privacy while you enjoy The Caffeinated Day Tripper. That’s exactly why I’ve decided to disclose the information gathering and dissemination processes for this blog.

First off, I will never recommend or endorse any product, business, restaurant or travel destination for financial compensation or personal gain. This blog is all about my preferences & opinions. Period. If someone asks me to try out their restaurant, I’ll let you know. I’ll also let you know my honest opinion. Any ads that may appear are tailored to suit what may be of interest to those interested in our blog’s subject manner. We’ll always do our very best to keep it that way.

Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. These include: Internet Protocol addresses (your IP address), browser type (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla or Firefox), Internet Service Providers (like AOL or Comcast Cable), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Web cookies (also known as HTTP cookies, or just cookies) are parcels of text that are sent by a server to a Web browser, and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. In other words, a cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s computer that is tied to information about the user.

Web beacons are objects that are embedded in a webpage or email that are invisible to the user, but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. Other names are web bug, tracking bug, tag or page tag.

This website does use cookies. Additionally, some of my business partners (for example, Google AdSense) may use cookies, DoubleClick cookies and web beacons as well. This site has no access to, or control of advertisers’ web cookies or web beacons.

If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. Please check your browser’s help section for instructions on how to do this.

Links

This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. I encourage you, when you leave this website, to read the privacy policy (or privacy statement) of each and every website you visit, as this particular privacy policy applies solely to this particular website.

Advertisers

We may use third party advertisements on The Caffeinated Day Tripper to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as 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 Hampshire real estate ads to someone in New Hampshire, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing travel ads to someone who frequents travel sites). If you have any questions, please check their websites for their respective privacy policies. Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie via AdSense for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings. (Alternatively, users can opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.)

Again, 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 our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

The links in some of our posts are affiliate links. If you click on them and purchase something, we receive a small commission. This helps to keep our website up and running, so we can continue to share our adventures with you. We only endorse and recommend products that we use and love.
