When visiting Tickling the Wheat, I use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. The IP address used to access the site will be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, traffic cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.
I use third-party advertisements on Tickling the Wheat to support the site (such as Google through the Google AdSense program). Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on the site, which will also send these advertisers non-personal information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit the site, your operating system, web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, whether you have Flash installed, and other clickstream data. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.
