My name is Birgitte Coste and I'm the owner of this website Positive-Parenting-Ally.com.

Privacy is important to me. It probably is to you, too. This privacy policy explains how this website deals with data and privacy.

This privacy policy outlines the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use the website Positive-Parenting-Ally.com, as well as some of the steps taken to safeguard information. Hopefully this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with the website.

To comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) I have taken steps to ensure that any information you give me while being on my site is secure. 

Positive-Parenting-Ally.com strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all its operations. Likewise, I am dedicated to protecting my customers' and online visitors' privacy on my website.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Positive-Parenting-Ally.com uses cookies to help you personalize your online experience, to help identify and track visitors, their use of our website, and their website access preferences.

Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page.

For example, if you personalize the site's pages, or register with any of the site's services, a cookie enables Positive-Parenting-Ally.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

Advertising Cookies

Google Adsense

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our website. You can find a list of these companies here. These companies use cookies and web beacons in their ads to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. We share this information with these companies, but do not provide them with any personally identifiable information for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information from our website.

You may opt out of personalized ads for over 125 different ad networks. Click here to do that.

Some third-party advertisements are served by Google. Google's cookie enables it to serve ads to our visitors based on their visits to other sites on the Web. You may opt out of personalized ads by visiting the Google ad opt-out page.

This link from Google provides more information about how Google manages data in its ad products.

And here is Google's own privacy policy where they describe what they do to protect your information and give you control over it.

Affiliate Products and Services

We receive an affiliate commission for some of the products/services sold on Positive-Parenting-Ally.com.

The affiliate services platform we currently use is SendOwl. SendOwl is a bit different from many other companies in that category as it only works to provide the software and setup the transaction between the buyer (you) and the seller (the one with the product). So even though my role is that of an affiliate, SendOwl's role is basically that of a payment processor.

By clicking on a product or service link, you consent to that platform's use of cookies, as outlined in the link below:

Pop-Up Store

The service I use to help me sell my digital products is via the pop-up store, Ganxy. The Ganxy widget is a software product that facilitates the service of buying my digital products.

By clicking on the Ganxy widget (the product link), you consent to Ganxy's use of cookies, as outlined in the link below:

Payment Processors

If you decide to purchase my products, you have the choice of using PayPal through the Ganxy pop-up store.

If you choose to buy an affiliate product directly via my site (and choose not to go through the seller's site), you will also pay through Paypal.

You can review PayPal's privacy policy here:

The payment processing is not done on Positive-Parenting-Ally.com but by the payment processor. We do not have access to your payment details such as credit card number.

Social Media

On Positive-Parenting-Ally.com you will find links to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, G+, Tumblr and Reddit. Some of these links let let you share content with your friends and followers.
