How We Collect Information About You
Information is collected via log files, cookies, leaving comments on the site, or subscribing to our newsletter.
What Information do We Collect About You
We collect information on your name, email address, website (if you leave this in a comment), IP address and the pages that you visited and when you visited them on the site.
Should Made by a Princess offer any products for purchase, payment would be made via PayPal. All financial details are collected via PayPal which does not retain any financial information once the transaction has been processed.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.
How and Why We Track Your Visit
Like most websites around the world we use Google Analytics (GA) to process information about the number of visitors on our site, and their behavior. We use this information to record the number of people using Made by a Princess and to better understand where you discover our site (from social media, google or another site) and how you use it as well as to see how people move throughout the site.
GA records your approximate location down to town level, the type device you are using e.g. Mobile or Table, Name of device e.g. iPad or Samsung Galaxy etc…, operating system e.g. Windows 10 or iOS and browser e.g. Firefox or Chrome. None of this data can be used to identify you. Google does record your IP address however, we don’t have access to this information and it modifies it so that you cannot be identified specifically just the area that you are in.
Google Analytics Demographics
We are committed to ensuring that our website contains content that is valuable and useful to our readers. To help us with this we have implemented the Google analytics demographics and interest reporting features on our website. These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age and interests of website visitors and adapt our website content to better reflect their needs.
Although this information is collected through your Google ad settings, it is not provided to us in a personally-identifiable format. This means we cannot identify what information is about you, and we will not try to figure it out.
You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Google Ad settings or through the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. To do this Google Analytics uses a “cookie” on your devise. You can read more about cookies below.
