Internet user privacy and confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us at LivingWithBugs. Our reputation and integrity is directly related to the trust we have with our clients and customers. Please find below a description of how we strive to protect the privacy of Internet users, and maintain the Internet as a highly credible medium.
Information given to us...
All users who simply visit LivingWithBugs retain complete personal anonymity. We do not acquire or collect any personal information about you when you visit, nor do we require you to give us personal information to use our website. Your name, address, phone number, and email address all remain your private property. LivingWithBugs does, however, collect non-identifiable personal information which is specific to how you use our website (all sites do this whether or not they say so).
Our servers record non-personally identifying details such as, but not limited to, the server you are logged onto, the geographic location of the ISP you use, the type of browser you use, your IP address, the date and time, the duration of your visit and the pages viewed. This information is obtained solely for the purpose of determining the number of visits to our pages, how much time visitors spend and how many pages are viewed. This information is pooled for statistical purposes and is not traceable to individual users.
There are instances when a user may provide specific personal information when filling out a form on our site, such as when registering in the forum. This information is kept in absolute confidence and is not shared with any other organization. Nor do we collect or sell the email addresses or demographic information of casual visitors. A casual visitor is someone who visits our website but does not fill out any forms.
We are a legitimate informational website with no interest in misdirecting you, hijacking your browser or using other disreputable tactics.
Advertising On Our Site...
LivingWithBugs may use outside organizations to provide advertising for our site. The links on these ads may contain cookies that the advertiser uses to track the ad's effectiveness. Cookies received with banner ads are collected by the advertiser(s), and we do not have access or control over this information. Though we try to maintain relationships with only the most reputable advertisers, we have no control over their policies or procedures and cannot accept responsibility for their actions. However, we welcome any questions or complaints regarding any ads posted on our website.
Information specific to Google Ads...
Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads based on your visit to this site and other sites that deploy Google Ads.
This site contains links to other websites or references to non-Internet informational sources. LivingWithBugs is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites or sources.
Special Relationships with other websites or companies...
LivingWithBugs shares content with other websites. We do not, however, share any information given to us by visitors to our site.
LivingWithBugs has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We acknowledge, however, that there are no absolute privacy protections and thus cannot take responsibility for the malicious acts of others that are contrary to the policies listed in this document.
