Information is collected via log files, cookies, leaving comments on the site, resources centre, or subscribing to the newsletter.
I 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.
Like most websites around the world I use Google Analytics (GA) to process information about the number of visitors on the site, and their behaviour
I use this information to record the number of people using Harvest Moon Mama and to better understand where you discover my 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 Galazy 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, I don't have access to this information and it modifies it so that you can not be identified specifically just the area that you are in.
I am committed to ensuring that my website contains content that is valuable and useful to my readers.
To help me with this I have implemented the Google analytics demographics and interest reporting features on my website.
These tools allow me 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 me in a personally-identifiable format.
This means I cannot identify what information is about you, and I not try to figure it out. To do this Google Analytics uses a "cookie" on your machine. Read more about Cookies below.
