What information do we collect?
We collect the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you use to access the site through visitor analysis apps. The apps also show us approximate location, browser, visited pages, time on page, device, OS and status (returning or new visitor). We also can collect your social media account if you choose to comment on posts. Social media accounts that may be collected by your comments may be Twitter, Facebook or Google plus. We do not collect these automatically, they are only submitted if you log into them when you comment. We can also collect your name, email and/or phone number if you choose to include them if you send us a message on the “About Us” page. Your email will be collected and stored in our contact list if you choose to sign up for our newsletter. We also collect the history of keywords searched in the search bar over the past week.
How do we collect information?
Why do we collect this information?
At first glance it may seem like we collect a lot of information. However, we collect it to see what topics are an audience favorite and to continue producing articles and media that will be enjoyed more by our viewers- you! In the future we also plan on using the information to help us sell ads to keep our website running. The information will be used to show how many viewers we have in a given area, a statistic ad buyers usually require. We also collect email addresses so we can send you our newsletters or respond to your questions. The social media accounts are only used to identify yourself in the comments.
How do we use and share this information?
As previously stated, we plan on giving prospective ad buyers statistics on how big our audience is in a certain area. Based on where most of our audience is we will also gear articles to be focused on news in that area.
How do we communicate to site visitors?
Besides the articles written by our wonderful staff, we also communicate through newsletters that you can choose to sign up for and we have social media accounts that site visitors can choose to visit and communicate with as well.
