Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

I use this data to get an idea of who visits our blog, You can opt out to tracking using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On.
Who we share your data with
Demographic information is sometimes shared with PR agencies and clients so they can have a better understanding of who my audience is before agreeing to sponsor a review or giveaway, however, NO personal identifying information is shared with these agencies. The only information shared with them is total page view count, unique visitors, bounce rate and sometimes anonymous demographic information such as location, age and if you are a new or returning visitor.
If you enter a contest on our blog and win you agree to have your email address shared with the sponsor so you can redeem your prize.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
