Privacy is Key

Your Privacy:
Protected At The Circus Serene

I can be a bit neurotic about my own privacy – so you can expect me to be pretty darn protective of your private and personal information, too.

But since the software running this thing (and serving up the occasional ad) may collect certain types of data, I thought you needed to know a bit about how that all works.

As with most websites and blogs, some very basic information is automatically collected in log files with each visit. The logs may include your ISP and IP address, what browser you’re using, the time you visited our site and which pages you visited on The Circus Serene. If you comment or use the contact form, the site saves the information you entered, including your email address and name, your URL and Twitter nicks if you enter them, and the text of your comment itself. If you subscribe via RSS feed, information about your feed reader, items you’ve viewed or clicked, and your email address (if you signed up via email subscription) are collected.

Sounds a bit creepy put like that, doesn’t it?

But no worries… neither the software nor our sideshow fortune tellers can actually read your mind ; ) The information is used to help me know if I’m actually reaching my readers, to make it possible to reply to comments and contacts, and to serve up those RSS Feeds.

And I promise to never sell your information to third parties, spam you with endless get rich quick offers, or otherwise use your information for nefarious purposes. And the circus clowns will never, ever have access!

About Cookies and Web Beacons:

The Circus Serene may sometimes use cookies to store information in order to allow access to special features (like editing comments) and so on. Some third party advertisers may also use cookies and/or web beacons to track ad performance – that means they’ll also have access to your IP address, browser information, ISP, and various other non-identifiable information.

But I promise to only partner with trusted, reputable companies which have established privacy policies of their own, so even that limited information is kept… well.. private.

You’re welcome to turn off our cookies (and any third party cookies, as well) through your browser or security system settings. I can’t promise it won’t interfere with your use of the site, but it shouldn’t cause many problems.

And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
