Privacy Policy for www.ShamelessNerd.com

 

We understand that people are very concerned about their online privacy and the collection of their personal data; or these reasons we have developed this Privacy Policy in order to keep our users informed as to what information we are collecting and how we are collecting it.

We do use third-party advertising companies and plug-ins that use certain anonymous information about your activities while on our site. This collection allows us to better develop the services on this site and for our advertisers to better tailor ads for goods or services to your interests. We at Shameless Nerd never sell or share personally identifiable information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, etc. I wouldn’t want my email address sold to some spammy email company, so I would never do that to anyone else. As with almost every website you visit, we do use cookies. If you choose to disable this feature in your web browser you will still be able to use our site.

If you would like to research the privacy policies of the companies and plug-ins that we use, you can do so on their individual websites.

There are only specific instances in which your names, email addresses or mailing addresses are required:

  • Registering for our email newsletter requires your name and email address.
  • Registering to comment on our blog posts requires your name and email address.
  • Communicating with us via the form on the “Contact” page requires your name and email address.
  • Using the Commentluv plug-in when leaving your comment requires a website address.
  • Winning a blog contest or give-away requires your mailing address (emailed privately to Lotta@shamelessnerd.com) for prize delivery.
  • Purchasing items from a blog “garage sale” requires your name, PayPal email address (to send an invoice to) and your mailing address (for item delivery). In this instance the information will be privately emailed to Lotta@shamelessnerd.com and is NOT to be posted in a public comment as with some blogs. I feel that sending information privately is safer than posting it as a public comment.
