Privacy Policy
This page explains my approach to privacy on Free Meditation Info and how it affects you.



This privacy policy tells you how I use personal information collected here. Please read this privacy policy before using the site or submitting any personal information. By using the site, you accept the practices described in this privacy policy.

The Short Version

The ads on this site are from Google, and they may be tailored according to your browsing history.

Some 3rd parties like Facebook may know you visited this website, if you use their services. I can’t control them but I don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.

If you send me an email I never share your details or contact information with anyone.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.


The Long Version

Google Ads

The Ads you see on this website are from Google ads. Google, uses cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to websites.

Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your browsing history. In other words, they try to show you ads you might be interested in.

You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings.

General Ad Info

There is more information on ads and opting out options on the following pages;

Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Self-Regulatory Program

Network Advertising Initiative consumer opt out

Amazon Associates Program

This website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. This means, in particular, that if you follow a link from the Recommended Reading page to amazon.com or any other national version of Amazon website and then make a purchase within 24 hours, I will receive a small percentage of what you pay to Amazon (but your price will stay exactly the same). I get a small amount from Amazon for the referral and this helps to support this site.

If you choose to follow a link, and/or make a purchase, Amazon do not provide me with any of your personal information.

You can see Amazons privacy policy here.

Measuring visits.

I measure visitors to this website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within the site, how you arrived at the site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so I don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited the site.

The information I collect from analytics helps me understand what parts of the sites are doing well, how people arrive at the site and so on. Like most websites, I use this information to make the website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics. or opt out if you wish.

Facebook

Facebook provides social buttons and similar features which I use on the website – such as the “Like” and “Share” buttons.

To do so I embed code that they provide and I do not control. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. I do not have any access to that information, nor can I control how those networks use it.

Facebook therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As this website is inoffensive I imagine this is not a concern for most users.

Emails

I will never provide your personal information or email address to any third party.

Online payment

If you make a donation Paypal will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, I never have any access to your credit card details.

Data finding

If you're using the Places to Meditate map then Google may know your location. See Google Map’s privacy policy here.

Updates to this policy

I may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please write to me via the contact page.
