If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

 

How we use cookies

When you use and access our site, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser.

We use cookies for the following purposes: to enable certain functions of our site, to provide analytics, to store your preferences, and to enable advertisements delivery, including behavioral advertising.

We use both session and persistent cookies on our site and we use different types of cookies to run it. We may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.

We use cookies to store information about visitor preferences and to record user-specific information on visits and pages the user views, so as to provide a custom experience.

 

Third-party cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties cookies to report usage statistics of our site, deliver advertisements on and through our site, and so on.

In regard to third-party advertisers, Families for Financial Freedom has no access or control over these cookies. You should review the respective privacy policies on any and all third-party ad servers for more information regarding their practices and how to opt-out.

These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (such as click stream information, browser type, time and date, the subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.

Other Advertising Networks
Other advertising networks use cookies on this site to record any clicks on my advertisements. These networks may change from time to time and some or none may be present at the time of your visit.  If you need more information, please ask.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics through a plugin called Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (GADWP). According to Google Analytics terms of service (TOS), analytics customers are prohibited from sending personal information to Google. By default, the GADWP plugin doesn’t send this type of data to Google.

Regarding IP addresses, Google Analytics reports do not include nor display such information.

Google has now updated their Data Processing Amendment (DPA) to account for the General Data Processing Regulations (GDPR).

Google Analytics provides a browser extension that will allow users to opt out of tracking across all websites. Here’s the link.

The IP anonymization feature, which is a Data Privacy feature in GADWP

While Google Analytics is not revealing IP addresses on reports, this doesn’t mean the IPs are anonymized by default. GADWP provides a feature to anonymize the user IP, and we have enabled this feature.

Google Analytics may collect user ID/hashed personal data, IP addresses, cookies or behavior profiling.
