This website is owned and maintained by me, Kara Franco. It’s a business website meant to promote my digital marketing services. It also contains a blog about marketing ethics.

Information Collected

Providing an interactive experience on this site (e.g. allowing comments on blog posts), requires that I collect some information about you while you’re here.

If you leave a comment, that information includes:

  • Your username, email, and optional website URL
  • Your Gravatar profile associated with your email address (if you have one)
  • Anonymized data collected by Akismet to improve comment spam detection

If you simply browse this site, that information includes the following anonymous data:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you’re using
  • The web pages you request
  • The web page that sent you here 
  • The browser you’re using
  • The date(s) and time(s) of your sessions on this website

The information above is collected via Google Analytics cookies. I do not re-distribute or sell personal information collected through my website. You can read more about Google Analytics data collection, storage, and use of personal browsing information here.

Cookies

As a naturally curious person, I love using tools like Google Analytics to track your behavior while you’re on my website. It sounds a little creepy to phrase it that way, but I’m just being honest! Of course, understanding how you use my website is about more than just satisfying my curious nature. It’s also about making sure that the site is working and understanding what types of content you are most interested in. 

Please note that sensitive personal information is not stored within cookies.

Google Analytics requires cookies to be placed in your browser. If you do not want your behavior tracked while you’re on this site, you can decline cookies from the banner in the footer below. You can also access your cookie preferences for this site here.

What Are Cookies, Anyway?

In this context, cookies are not delicious snacks. They are small packets of data sent from my website to your browser that provide me with information about your visits here. Learn more about cookies.

Changes

While I don’t have any specific changes planned, everything changes, and this privacy policy is no exception. When it does change, those changes will be posted right here on this page.
