Cookies and Web Beacons

– Duchess of Plumewood uses 3rd party advertisements to support my writing. Some of these
advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they
advertise, 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).

DoubleClick DART cookies

– Duchess of Plumewood  may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick,
which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit
a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense
advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your
interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based
on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites
about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when
viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non
personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information
about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone
number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.

You can opt out of the DART cookie via the following page

You can opt out of other third party advertising cookies here
http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party
cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such
as Norton Internet Security. 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.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising
program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you
visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
