The privacy of my visitors to Hanbury House is important to me. When subscribing to my blog, I will never sell or redistribute your email address. Email addresses are used for the sole purpose of blog notifications when a new post is published or follow up comments.
To make comment submissions, you may be asked to enter an email address in the comment form or be a registered wordpress user. This email address is not publicly viewable, but can be viewed by me in the moderation form. When you prepare a comment, you may have the opportunity to add the name of your website or blog within the submission form; if you do, your name as it appears in the published comment will be hotlinked to your blog or website. If the wordpress software thinks your comment submission looks like spam, it may be held for later moderation by me. To avoid a comment being flagged as possible spam and have it published immediately, avoid adding any unnecessary links. Please note that if you post comments, any personally identifiable information you provide may be read, collated and used by anyone viewing them. My blog has been read in more than 100 countries around the world and is publicly viewable. As such, I am not responsible for personally identifiable information you may choose to make available through the comments section. Contact me if you would like a previous comment deleted or edited in order to remove personal information.
If you do not wish to submit an email address but want to know when new content is published at Hanbury House, you can follow the blog through the other linked services like Twitter, Google+, or Facebook, or subscribe to the RSS feed of this site.
You may opt out of receiving any future email communications by contacting me at lianne (at) hanburyhouse (dot) com and enter the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line, or by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any Feedburner service email sent to you on behalf of Hanbury House.
I use third party advertisements on Hanbury House to help offset the expense of self hosting my blog. Currently Google Adsense is featured on pages and posts. Each visitor to the blog may be viewing different ads, depending on their web-browsing history. I have little to no control over the content of these ads, although I did “opt out” of anything that seemed inappropriate for my G-rated blog. Please contact me if you see any ads that you consider offensive, and I will see if I can block it. This is the main reason I left wordpress.com’s free hosted site after happily using their fabulous service for two years. I decided a wanted a little control over ads being shown to my visitors. The advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons to track viewers when they advertise on this site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing Los Angeles home improvement ads to someone in Los Angeles, for example) or showing certain ads based on sites you already visited (such as showing crafting ads to someone who frequents sewing and craft sites). You can chose to disable or selectively turn off cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in your online browser, such as Chrome. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with other websites. Here at Hanbury House, if you use Ad Blocking software or settings through your webbrowser, blank space will show up where the google ad code was.
