The privacy of visitors to is important to me.  I want to be very clear that I am not attempting to gather any personally identifying information without your consent, and if you do opt to share your name or email address for a particular purpose, I will never sell your personal information to third parties.

I am not much of a computer expert, but to the best of my knowledge the following is a list of the types of personal information that is or might be collected when you visit this site:

Log Files

Google Analytics records information from visitor log files to report information like IP addresses, internet service providers, browsers, time visited on a site, pages visited and similar information to website owners.  I use Google Analytics to find out how many people visit Recovery Helpdesk and for other statistics.  None of this appears to be personally identifying information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Cookies may be used to store information about visitors to a website.  Often this is to help personalize a users experience with a website.  Although I’m not technical enough to know for sure, I think some functions of this website may automatically use cookies to function.

I may at times use third party advertisements on this website, and some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons (Google Adsense, for example) which could also send these advertisers information about your IP address, ISP, browser or whether you have Flash installed on your computer.  This isn’t anything sinister and is usually used to better target specific ads to specific visitors (such as showing dog ads to visitors of a dog website).

You can choose to disable cookies in your browser settings or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security.  But this can change how you are able to interact with websites.

If you have any specific privacy concerns please comment below and I will do my best to address your concern.
