As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our Website. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can modify your browser setting to disable or reject cookies.
This is a free content site. We do not require any information from you (email, user name or password) unless you fill out a contact form, enter a give-away, leave a comment or sign up for our newsletter. We do not sell any information from our site to any outside party. The only e-mail sent from our website is in response to an inquiry that you may send us or as a result of joining our double opt-in e-mail list. We collect the information that you voluntarily submit to us when you use our contact form or newsletter sign up.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials via email may opt-out at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of any email sent from us.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies are small text files which are sent to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies act as a memory for a website, allowing that website to remember your device on your return visits. Cookies can also remember your likes and preferences, improving the user experience as well as tailoring adverts you see to those most relevant to you.
We may also use third party advertisements 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 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).
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.
