If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Where we send your data

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Affiliate Disclosure

Sometimes I use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if I’ve used a product or service personally and liked it, and that product or service has an affiliate program, I sign up for it. Then, when I mention that product or service in one of my blog posts, I link to it using my affiliate link.

Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little jingle for my pocketbook.

If you’ve hung around my sites long or know me well, you know that I would just as soon eat barbed wire or chew broken glass than sell my soul to make money off of you on a product I don’t even like. That would be disingenuous. You know this, I know this. But, alas, the FTC isn’t sure you really know this. 

And that is why I wrote this disclosure – to empower everyone to fearlessly make an informed decision before clicking on an affiliate link. There should be no question that if I feel comfortable with a product or service and refer it to you, I don’t mind making a little money for that referral. I hope you would do the same.
