Privacy policy

Hey, I consider the privacy of my visitors extremely important (search this site for “privacy” blog posts). And this page describes the types of personal information that are collected and recorded on the CrosbyReport. If you need any more information or have any questions about this privacy policy, please feel free to contact me.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

While using The CrosbyReport (aka, TCR), you will (hopefully) provide me with certain information that will be used to contact, identify, or send you hilarious emails (very occasionally, at best). This information includes any of the following: first name, last name, and email address. I do not sell, trade, rent, or otherwise share your personal information with third parties without your consent.

Log Files and Analytics

Through the use of Drupal (an open-source content management system), I have access to the site’s log files. These files record visitors’ info and actions around the site — including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. I use this information (once in a while) to analyze trends, administer the site, track movement around the site, and gather demographic information, none of which is linked to any personally identifiable information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

TCR uses cookies to store information about visitors’ preferences, and to personalize or customize the web page content based upon visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser.

DoubleClick DART Cookie

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on TCR. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to my site’s visitors based upon their visit to TCR and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy page.

Advertising Partners
Some TCR advertising partners may use cookies and web beacons on this site. Advertising partners include:

  • Amazon
  • Commission Junction

While each of these advertising partners has their own Privacy Policy for their site, an updated and hyperlinked list is maintained here. Consult this listing to find the privacy policy for each advertising partner.

Third-party advertising servers, (aka, ad networks) use technology in their respective advertisements and links that automatically receive your IP address. Other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) may also be used by third-party ad networks to measure the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and/or to personalize the advertising content that you see on the site. TCR has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers.

Third Party Privacy Policies

TCR contains links to outside websites, but TCR does not take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those websites. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices. TCR’s privacy policy does not apply to, and I cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites. If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options.

Children’s Information

TCR does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that TCR has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact me immediately and I will promptly try to remove such information from my records.

Consent

By using this website, you hereby consent to my privacy policy and agree to its terms.

Update

This Privacy Policy is subject to change and was last updated: September 2019.

Should I update, amend or make any changes to my privacy policy, those changes will be posted here.
