Amazon Services LLC Associates Program
The owner of this website, velvetsundown.com, is 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 Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com.
Velvetsundown.com is an active part of the Amazon Associates Program. Being a part of this program means that every time you visit this site or follow a link to any national version of Amazon.com and make a purchase in less than 24 hours, we will be paid a small percentage of the total purchase bill you pay to Amazon.com. Rest assured that the price of the product you buy remains the same.
It’s our rule not to link back to particular products just for the purpose of advertising them. We only link products, which have proved to be genuinely helpful to me such as books we have penned because, honestly, it would be a shame not to find our books helpful. The websites, which link back to such products, contain honest information and unbiased opinion on them. Simply put, we do not advertise products just to urge you to buy them; we recommend products because we found them useful.
At velvetsundown.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit http://velvetsundown.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.
Log Files As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
We also use third party advertisements on Velvetsundown.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, 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 London real estate ads to someone in London, 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 We also 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 Liverpool, you may see Liverpool 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 this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose 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.
