What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
This website has a voluntary newsletter subscription (with opt-out instructions) through Mail Chimp. Sent newsletters may contain tracking pixels. These pixels allow us to see if/when you open an email, and any links in the email you may click. This information helps us to create more engaging newsletters by looking at the behaviour of our audience. This information is not passed to third parties. You can opt-out of future communications by following the “unsubscribe link” in our email. You can also e-mail email@example.com to be removed.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Ads on my site are from Google AdSense.
At times I use affiliate links in my blog posts and sidebar. Affiliate links are safe links to online stores. If you click on one of my affiliate links, then end up purchasing something from that site, I will receive a small commission. This commission helps to support my blog. I only use affiliate links to sites that I trust, and to products I use and/or love.
Keeping With the Times accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, affiliate links or other forms of compensation.
These are chosen under careful consideration and are companies/brands that we believe in such as:
Stampington & Company
