As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We use third party advertisements on athoughtfulplaceblog.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our 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 choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in your browser. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
You can contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your data to be permanently deleted or exported and provided back to you.
Advertising Privacy Statement
This Site is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”) for the purposes of placing advertising on the Site. AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and our other advertising partners will track your behavior on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Many posts contain affiliate links. If you click on an affiliate link and buy something, we may receive a very small commission. It does not result in additional charges to you or cost you anything extra. Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of our blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference. The affiliate money we earn per month helps pay the fees to keep this site up and running. Thanks for your support of A Thoughtful Place.
In addition to occasional sponsored posts, A Thoughtful Place uses clickable affiliate links. That means that ATP may receive a small commission from sales at no extra charge to the buyer. As always, my opinion is 100% my own and I only recommend things that I truly love or use myself. Thank you for your loyal support.
