My site is called Daddy Confidential, after all. Accordingly, any personal information you supply will be kept in the strictest confidence. Happily for both of us, the only private information you’re likely to supply is an email address, for the purpose of posting comments. Whatever name you choose to comment under will be displayed, but your email address will never be shown or shared by me. I don’t request or collect any other personally identifiable information. Fair enough?
I’m fairly sure that my web host (Liquid Web) collects the data contained in log files. The information in log files may include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Verizon), the browser you used to visit my site (e.g. Firefox, Chrome or Safari), the time you visited my site and which pages you visited throughout the site. Such practices are standard and (to my knowledge) not used for any annoying or nefarious purposes.
Cookies and Web Beacons:
Between your computer, my web host, and the software supporting this blog, it’s entirely possible that cookies and similar information are stored and used. This site does not actively exploit any such information. What happens in the background is beyond my technical understanding and I therefor accept zero responsibility for how it may affect you, dear reader.
If you ever notice advertising on this site, these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons, technologies which may send these advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit this site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites). You can chose to disable or selectively turn off cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with this and other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Daddy Confidential is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. (This site only makes use of links (as opposed to advertising). When a link on this site takes you to a product for sale on Amazon.com, I would theoretically earn a tiny commission. (I say theoretically because I don’t actively track this.) If this arrangement makes you uneasy, you can always void the commission by finding a product’s Amazon page via any route outside this blog.
I do my utmost to partner with honest businesses, entities and individuals. But using the internet comes with inherent risks and annoyances that can never be fully mitigated. By accessing this web site, you assume all risk for any disagreeable outcome, be it intentional, accidental, or supernatural. Please feel free to contact me regarding any question or issue not addressed above.
