    We are non-commercial, all volunteer and supported by our readers. Please help sustain the Dew by making a donation.

    Privacy

    We respect your privacy and will never pass on or sell your information to any third parties without your permission to do so. You may unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time simply by using the link provided in our email communications.

    Collection of personal information

    To serve you better and understand your needs and interests, LikeTheDew.com collects, exports, and uses personal information with adequate notice and consent, when applicable. For example, when you order products, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register yourself, enter contests or participate in surveys at LikeTheDew.com, we will ask you to provide personal information to complete these transactions. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include contact information such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address; and other unique information such as user IDs and passwords, and transaction information, product and service preferences, and contact preferences.

If you choose to use an email or tell-a-friend program on our site, we will ask you for your friend’s e-mail address and automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting your friend to visit the site. LikeTheDew.com uses and stores this information only for the purpose of sending this one-time e-mail and to provide tell-a-friend message blocking, where available.

In addition to the information you provide, LikeTheDew.com may also collect information during your visit to an LikeTheDew.com website through our Automatic Data Collection Tools, which include Web beacons, cookies, embedded Web links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at an LikeTheDew.com website. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, clickstream behavior (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with LikeTheDew.com websites) and product information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers use IP addresses to communicate on the Internet, allowing users to browse and shop. LikeTheDew.com may also use some of these Automatic Data Collection Tools in connection with certain emails sent from LikeTheDew.com and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.

    The following sections provide additional information about commonly-used web technology tools.

    Cookies
    A “cookie” is a small data file transferred by a website to your computer’s hard drive. LikeTheDew.com sends cookies when you surf our site or sites where our ads appear, make purchases, request or personalize information, or register yourself for certain services.  Accepting the cookies used on our site or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.

    •    Session cookies do not stay on your computer after you close your browser.
    •    Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire. Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some Web pages may not display properly.
    You can find information on popular browsers and how to adjust your cookie preferences at the following websites:
    •    Microsoft Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm
    •    Mozilla Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/psm/help_21/using_priv_help.html

    Web beacons
    Some LikeTheDew.com.com and third-party Web pages and HTML-formatted email use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your website usage and your interaction with email. A Web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the Web beacon is placed.
    You may be able to disable Web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in the message you receive (this feature varies depending on the email software used on your personal computer). However, doing this may not always disable a Web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities. For more information about this, please refer to the information provided by your email software or service provider.
    If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters, LikeTheDew.com may automatically collect personal information about you. For example, through Web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these emails or newsletters, LikeTheDew.com can track whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages. For more information on embedded Web links, see below.

    Embedded web links
    Emails from LikeTheDew.com often use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the Web, after redirection through LikeTheDew.com’s servers. The redirection system allows LikeTheDew.com to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.
    In emails, such web links may also allow LikeTheDew.com to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information about the interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want LikeTheDew.com to collect information about the links that you click, you can change your choice about how you receive communications from LikeTheDew.com (i.e. choose a text-based version of the message where available) or choose not to click links in an email that LikeTheDew.com sends.

    Information-gathering tools
    LikeTheDew.com may use tools to collect information about your experience on some LikeTheDew.com websites. These tools do not involve the use of Web beacons or cookies, but record your interaction with an LikeTheDew.com website as captured by an LikeTheDew.com server. Certain tools, used in some countries, may enable LikeTheDew.com to replay customer web sessions. These tools are used primarily for troubleshooting purposes; information collected by these tools will be stored for a limited period of time.
    LikeTheDew.com also collects information from commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address and demographic data. The information LikeTheDew.com collects from its commercial sources may be used along with the information LikeTheDew.com collects when you visit LikeTheDew.com’s websites. For example, LikeTheDew.com may compare the geographic information acquired from commercial sources with the IP address collected by Automatic Data Collection Tools to derive your general geographic area.

    How we use your information

    The information LikeTheDew.com collects to understand your needs and interests helps LikeTheDew.com deliver a consistent and personalized experience. For example, LikeTheDew.com may use your information to

    • provide service and support;
    • update you on new services and benefits;

    From time to time, LikeTheDew.com participates in marketing initiatives with other companies. As part of these initiatives, certain LikeTheDew.com services and marketing communications are delivered at the same time as those from other companies. Some of these services and communications offer you the option to share personal information with both LikeTheDew.com and the other companies participating in these initiatives. If you choose to provide personal information only to LikeTheDew.com, LikeTheDew.com will not share this information with the other companies participating in that marketing initiative.

Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers.

    • Pingback: Response to LiketheDew.com’s Privacy Policy « Drafting 1.0()

      • Elizabeth -- Thank you for this review and your feedback. It was valuable to read and you do a wonderful service for your readers who need to be aware of this stuff.

        LikeTheDew is an all volunteer site with less than $1,000 in expenses a year and less than that in revenue. In other words, a hobby. We genuinely care about privacy. The main reason we do any site tracking, is find out if our site is still up and people are visiting it and our newsletters are going out and being read. Further, were we to disable all tracking on LTD, all this information is still being tracked by others beyond our control -- NSA, CIA, Google, Bing, Alexa, Technorati and the like, plus each users internet provider and every server in between. Caveat emptor.

        A couple of clarifications on your dislikes:
        1. The cookies we use on the site are only used for statistical purposes (page popularity and that sort of thing); are never compiled, exported or shared with any specific user information; user information is only accessed when attempting to solve a specific technical issue on our site and, generally, only when specifically requested by the user – one exception, if we determine a user is a spammer, that data may be used for blacklisting on our site. No user information is shared via the Dewshops, while we can track links which are clicked, we do not compile, share it or export with any user information.
        2. I agree that replaying a user session seems overly intrusive. We do not have the technical capability to replay a session and we don’t do this.
        3. The only user information we use is the email address provided by a user when they opt-in while subscribing to our newsletters. Since our newsletters are, technically, a solicitation to get visitors to read the stories and our newsletters carry ads, we felt we should disclose it in this manner. We do not intentionally spam. Our software requires an email confirmation and users who opt-out are permanently on a do not mail list.
        4. This is boilerplate copy. We do not send personalized promotional offers nor any solicitations other than an occasional site announcement about some reshaping of the site that for some reason needs to be in an email separate from our newsletter.
        5. You are probably right. We did this once more than a year ago, before we developed this privacy policy, and felt it should be disclosed. We have not done it since. Were we to do so, we would ask a subscriber through our newsletter for permission, first.

        One note on web beacons, these images are not downloaded to a user’s computer. The html code in the email reads the image from host’s web site (just as if a user had gone to the web site and viewed a page that had the image). Opening an html email from someone you know, is not any different that going to a web site that you trust. The big problem with them is spammers. When you open one of their emails, the web beacon tells them you have a valid email address, where you opened (your IP address, which is can be mapped automatically) and they exploit that.

        Thanks again. Should you wish to, I’d be happy to have you post it on LikeTheDew.com (how to post is on our FAQs).

        BTW, I didn’t see a privacy policy on your site. You are WordPress, they track everything. -- Lee
