This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Taking Care Of A Parent ("us", "we", or "our") and our website (the "Site"); www.takingcareofaparent.com and takingcareofaparent.com. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.
We may use your Personal Information only for responding to email, to view the general location of our visitors and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection And Use
While using our Site, you may provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you by sending us an email. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name and email address ("Personal Information"). You may decide to contact the author or make a comment by email. This task is initiated by you and we only use your personal information to respond back to your email.
Like many site operators, our web host may automatically collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, web host, country, region/province/state, city, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use services and/or software, such as Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik) that collect, monitor and analyze this information.
How Log Data Information Is Used
We may use your Log Data Information for the purpose of viewing the geographic location of visitors to our Site. This is very similar to when people would pin a post card or put a pin on a map to show they received mail from a different country, region, state province and city. We use the Access Log Report (Log Data Information) from our web host and extract country, region, province or state, city and web host. The IP address is then deleted and only the geographic and web host information remain on a list. The accuracy of the location is not very precise, in fact the software shoes our own IP address location approximately five (5) mile away from our actual city location. Our only interest in this information is to get a general idea of the location of our visitors because it is called the “world wide web.” If the author does a interview he wants to see if it has made an impact at the location of the interview. We will not sell this information to anyone. We make our profit by selling books not your information.
Log Data Retention
Access Logs (Log Data information) remain for fourteen (14) days and then they are automatically deleted from our web hosting provider. We delete Access Log reports at the end of each month.
