Unsolicited emails
There is no direct marketing mailing list - ever.

If using Amazon Payments, they will send order confirmation emails to buyers making purchases with Amazon Payments. will not be sending redundant emails regarding order confirmation.

If using Paypal for making payment Paypal will send order confirmation emails. Once again, i do not send redundant emails.

Mailing Lists
I do not keep mailing lists and never send emails to anyone unless there is an express request by a customer to let them know of specific items of interest, when and if they become available.

Paying with Amazon and/or Paypal
With none of the payment method noted above do I, that is or my 'sidesites' GoodPlansCheap & NaturesPickings, become privy to any of a customer's financial information such as credit card numbers, pin numbers, username or passwords.

When using these payment venues the customer is taken to Amazon's or Paypal's website for secure login ( check to see their' https://' URL precursor ) and payment processing.

The only information I receive is a notification from them that payment was made and what mailing address to use to ship the item.

' Cookies ' and the Non-Gathering of ' Personal information '

      --- This site uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads ( referring to Google Ads ) when you visit this website.
These companies may use information gathered ( NOT including your name, address, email address, or telephone number { 'Personally Identifiable' Information 'PII' } ) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Basically, what happens is that when users click on Ads on websites the third party advertising companies keep track of what Ads are clicked, how often, if different users click them, what subjects appear to generate more interest, etc. They do not collect 'Personal Identifiable Information'.( once again:They DO NOT COLLECT information that can identify or locate a particular person - PII ).
They DO COLLECT: ( a user’s Internet Service Provider, a computer’s operating system and browser type, and a unique DoubleClick DART cookie ID ).

Regarding Google Adsense and Google ' Interest Based Advertising' ( See this for a good explanation on this topic )

Most recently, at least by April 8, 2009, Google will be providing 'Interest Based' Ads on websites that comply with Googles Policies with regard to targeted Ads ( Adsense ), this site being in compliance. These 'Interest Based' Ads will be observable to website viewers based on their habits/history while surfing various websites on the internet ( via cookies).
Notwithstanding that such information is gathered by third party advertisers, such as Google, about the web viewing habits/history of viewer's browsers, such gathered information will NOT be in the form of 'PII' ( Personally Identifiable Information )- see above.
An example would be where a person that likes Golf and that visits many web pages where Golf is the subject matter, the 'Interest Based' Ads directed to that individual would be in the Golf category.

Sites that are account holders in the Adsense program, such as this site, must provide instructions to web viewers about these 'Interest Based' Ads AND that there are 'Opt Out' choices available. In other words, if you regular surf the internet and do not want your interests' being tracked there are methods you can use to 'Opt Out', see 'How can I adjust my cookie settings to accept or decline cookies?
