Personal note from Jess : I do not use Google Analytics. I do use the free version of Slimstat, a wordpress plugin, just to see traffic on my blog, where it comes from and what pages are most visited, ect. I set it to Privacy mode so that it masks your IP addresses (altho wordpress comments do collect this – see more about this in the generic privacy policy below) and does not track your browser fingerprint because quite frankly I don’t really care what IP number you have nor which browser you use unless you contact me and say you have a problem viewing my website or downloading a file from my website. Only then I may ask what browser you are using to help troubleshoot the issue with you.

I make no money from this website by outside Ads or Sponsors. Now it is possible I will have an Ad for something relating to one of my products, or a product in the store I currently belong to. But that is simply to share information…not steal it!

My goal? I only want to have a simple blog to write information for my readers. I want to share freebies I create with you. I am not making any money from outside advertising or sponsors to do this. I do share my products and if you choose to buy them by visiting the store links I have provided then that is great and in turn the only way I make money. If I ever make a product suggestion that is not my own it’s because I really enjoyed it and think you will too. Also I have never been paid to say anything.

I’ll let you know here if any of this changes but I don’t foresee any big changes there.

Below is the generic privacy policy. I took out some of the things that just aren’t applicable to this site like login page information.
