Google Analytics and Cookies
“Cookies” are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow my website to remember important information that will make your use of the website more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value.
I use Google Analytics to analyse the use of my website. Google Analytics gathers information about my website use by means of cookies. The information gathered relating to my website is used to create reports about the use of my website.
I am 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 properties (amazon.com, endless.com, myhabit.com, smallparts.com, or amazonwireless.com).
If you click a link on my website that takes you to Amazon, Amazon will pay me a small commission if you purchase something. The commission is based only on any items you purchase on Amazon in that one session. It doesn't affect the price of the items you purchase; my commission is taken out of Amazon's profits. I don't receive your personal information, such as name, age, email address and so on.
Information About Your Email Address
Certain visitors to my websites choose to interact with me in ways that require me to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that I gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who sign up for my newsletter at deanyray.com to provide their email address. I take every precaution to protect this information and won't share it with other authors or services. You can unsubscribe anytime from my newsletter.
