I like to have a nice and simple custom one just so you can read and generally understand what is tracked etc here.
Google Analytics: I use this tracking software to see what people browse on the website. It helps me learn what other topics I should write about – what’s popular etc. It also tracks data like the country you are from and the web browser you use etc. That way if I see that people are on the site using an iPad a lot, I can make sure my site is fully optimized for iPad.
Google Adsense: I use Google Adsense to make money from the site. They display ads. What this means is that third parties may be placing and reading cookies on a browser, as well as the fact that web beacons shall be used. These collect information from users because Adsense is on the site.
Amazon Associates: I link to Amazon on the site for where you can go to buy books etc. I make money from you as an Amazon Associate if you go to Amazon and buy products. I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
Mailchimp: I use the mailing list software Mailchimp. You will input your name and e-mail address and it is stored within Mailchimp to get e-mail updates from my website when new posts are made. This is both entirely optinal and has opt-in.
I believe that’s it but if you have any questions, issues etc send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
