How do we collect information?
When you visit our website, place a comment on a post, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, click on a link, or in connection with other activities, services, features, or resources we make available on our site, we may ask for your name, email address, and other personal information from you. Some of this information (like IP address) may be automatically collected, and more personal details (like name and email address) may only be collected with voluntary consent from the user. You can always refuse to supply this personal information, except that it may prevent you from engaging in certain site related activities.
1. Log Files
Like many other websites, we use log files to help learn about when, from where, and how often traffic flows to this site. The information in the log files include:
Internet Protocol addresses (IP)
Types of browser
Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Date and time stamp
Referring and exit pages
Number of clicks
All of this information is not linked to anything that is personally identifiable.
2. Cookies and web beacons
Like nearly all WordPress blogs, this site stores “convenience” cookies on your computer whenever you leave a comment. The cookies record the name, email address, and URL that you enter when you submit a comment so that you won’t have to re-type that info the next time you leave a comment.
Third-party advertisers may also place and read cookies on your browser and/or use web beacons to collect information. Alt-Ternative Autoimmune 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.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your web browser options. Instructions for doing so and for other cookie-related management can be found on the specific web browsers’ websites.
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool we use to help understand how visitors engage with our websites. It reports website trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. You can read more at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview.
Users may choose to receive email blog updates via a third-party newsletter service by submitting an email address to the email subscription form. We use a secure opt-in subscription system and we reserve the right to contact subscribers with information related to our websites and blog. Subscribers may unsubscribe any time and every email delivered will contain an “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom.
When leaving a comment, users must submit a name and email address. To combat spam, the WordPress blogging platform also records the IP address of anyone submitting a comment.
Again, none of this information will be shared with anyone without their direct permission.
