General Statement on Information Collection and Use
Information Collection and Use
If you choose to leave a comment on one of The French Genealogy Blog's posts, you will be asked to give a name and e-mail address. The latter may be used to contact you. If you do not wish to be contacted by the author of The French Genealogy Blog, please say so in your comment.
The French Genealogy Blog does not collect information that your browser may send when you visit our blog, nor do we use Google Analytics or other third party services that collect, monitor and analyze log data.
We do not send any newsletters, marketing material or other material, nor do we maintain a mailing list. It is exhausting enough just writing this blog.
Cookies are said to be files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier, but we suspect them of being not as innocuous as their promoters may say. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive. Unlike many sites, we do not use "cookies" to collect information. The French Genealogy Blog considers cookies to be vile and deserving of a Papal anathema; we recommend that you clear your cache of them and your browser history regularly.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Please know that, if you choose to give us your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We recommend that you always give out the minimum amount of personal information possible, create a separate e-mail to use only for genealogy and that does not identify you personally, trust no one.
