If you found yourself here because you clicked on the Privacy and Comment Policy link, then you have come to the right place.
So without further ado, I bring you the MDLU's Privacy and Comment Policy.....we don't collect any identifiable on our readers through daily operation of the site. However, such information may be collected by third party advertisers (Please see the policy below). The only information that we may have access to from time-to-time is the linking website and/or trackbacks.
Only in extreme cases (i.e. Spamming) will we have access to your IP address. Multiple attempts to spam will lead to a ban of your IP address. The same goes with comments.
Most of the above will be covered under the policy established by TypePad's comment management system.
Third Party Advertiser Cookies and Web Beacons
A "cookie" is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a Web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies can be used to target advertisements relevant to your interests, based on your visits to different Web sites, to provide traffic measurement and other analytics and to conduct research.
A "Web beacon" is an electronic file on a Web page that allows a Web site to count users who have visited that page, to access certain cookies and to provide auditing, research and reporting for advertisers.
When your browser requests a page that displays advertising from one of the Advertisers, the Advertiser may view, edit or set its own cookie through your browser. In addition, the Advertiser may place its own Web beacon in the page, which may be triggered by your browser's request.
