Our policy is simple: We collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. Nor do we store any information about your visit to this website other than to analyze and optimize the content. We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are, only that somebody visited our site. The accumulated information from thousands of visitors helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. We use this information to make our website better
Links to Other Sites
We provides links to external websites. Please be aware that when you leave our website you will be going to sites that are beyond our control and standards. These external websites have their own privacy policies and may collect or ask for additional information when you visit. We suggest contacting these sites directly for information on their privacy policies. Ads appearing on our website may be delivered by advertising services. We try to choose reputable advertisers from these services and find products that may interest you. These advertising services also store and collect anonymous information to analyze ad traffic. For example, if you purchase a product through an ad on our site, we may make a little money. The advertising service needs to track our ad traffic so they know the purchase originated on our site. We also analyze this ad traffic to help choose products to offer you. The ad traffic information we get is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are, only that somebody clicked an ad link on our site.
E-mail You Send to Us
If you decide to send us an e-mail message, the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally identifying information in your e-mail because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. Please be aware that e-mail is not totally secure against interception. Send us (and others) only the information necessary to help process your request.
Voluntary Submission of Information
On some of our web pages we provide forms that let you voluntarily submit personal information (such as e-mail address or name). For example, this occurs when you sign up to receive our iPad tips newsletter. In those cases, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended.
We use industry-standard payment providers such as PayPal to bill for our own products online. These companies will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, we never have any access to your credit card details. We share information with these companies only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make directly from us via our website. Purchases you make from our advertisers are governed by their privacy and payment policies.
