Information that Is Captured
Our list server program automatically tracks the number of visitors and what pages and links are clicked. Absolutely no identifying information is captured with that count -- only the number appears in the reports from our list serve company.
LinkShare and Amazon.com - We use Amazon (associates.amazon.com) and Linkshare.com as a springboard for working with many affiliate companies (advertisers on our website). Linkshare does not capture any personal information whatsoever on those who click on our affiliates. They do however, count the number of clicks to products and companies. IOH reports from affiliate companies only show a number -- not names, shipping habits, ISP or other addresses. Amazon customers are subject to Amazon's privacy policies whether they shop Amazon.com directly, or through our site, the policy is the same.
